do not sign up for multiple credit cards....it lowers your credit score.....everytime you sign up for one or try to sign up for one...


do not always check your credit score....that also lowers it everytime you check it...



also.....if you have a cc....buy big purchases....and pay it off quickly immediately....


be weary of identity theft...check your ssid....and also pay for the protection...


dont want people putting ccs in ya name or taking out loans in ya name....you will get screwed


AVOID DEPARTMENT STORE CREDIT CARDS......They have too much interest....they charge you extra every month...and ruin ya credit....hard to get rid of them too


also put a limit on yourself...and your credit card....if your young and got a cc.....put a 2,000 - 5,000 limit..maybe even less...depending on your needs, incomes and what you are using it for...

so that you dont overspend, put yourself in a debt bind....and destroy your credit...

put a daily limit and block on your credit...so you dont over spend 2,000 or 1,000...if you young...


I had an amex at 14, 15....that didn't let me go over 2,000....granted it was given to me by my parents.....but it had a daily limit and blockage...so you dont over spend and dont get into debt.


The better your credit, the faster you pay off things on time. The more credit card companies like Amex, Visa, MC, Discover are willing to give you that 20,000 - 10,000 dollar spending on your cc.

My chick has a few credit cards. All are current except one that she forgot to pay the bill on a couple months in a row and she just decided to let it go. Now they're tryin to sue her. I'm not sure if it's a collection agency or the card company.

Should she dispute the negative with the credit bureaus, try to settle, get on some type of payment plan, or just let it go and ignore the lawsuit? I believe the card is about 2 years old.

I don't know what you guys think bad credit is... All i know is my lowest score is 735 right now and no one will approve me for a CC. Not even Orchard Bank.

I have 1 derogatory account on all 3 branches. It is a verizon account. Shows collection but its a 0 balance and shows paid. It was reported in 04 so it can stay on there until 2014.

Its possible i may have too much debt. Too many open accounts, or it may be the personal loan agency i use. Who knows..... Its embarrassing though i will tell you that. I also have little cards like Kay Jewelers, Lowes hardware, and HH Gregg. All have 0 balances. Maybe i should close them and get them off the reports. My girl has a 600 score and she has 3 credit cards. I have 735 for the lowest and no one will approve me.

What bureau is saying you have a 735 score? What are the other two scores?

Score really only means so much.

If your credit to debt ratio is horrible people will deny you for things even if you have a high score.

Don't close those open accounts either, even if they are showing a 0 balance, it will help your total open credit ratio. The moment you close those, it will shrink that number give you a higher ratio thus lowering your score.

Ok, this is where you have to make an important decision based on 1 thing.

How much does she owe on the credit card she let go??

If you're being sued, you can file for bankruptcy, but over ONE credit card, I don't recommend that option at all, UNLESS its like some crazy 25k credit card thats fully maxed.
Once you have been sued and ignore the lawsuit, they automatically win the judgement and now they can detach your wages until they receive the total amount plus court costs.

In your girlfriends situation I would definitely call them up and work out a payment plan with them and settle it that way, that would be in your best interest, because if you let them detach wages they will take the max allowed by law out of her check.

Let me know how much she owes on that credit card.

You can post in this thread, I totally forgot about this thread again and now i have it booked marked to help people whenever they have questions.

My girl is at work so I can't get the exact amount she owes. I know the limit was $750 and the balance she owes now is $900 - $1200. I remember her saying they offered her some type of payment on their "Solutions" site. Should I tell her to go ahead with that? And what type of payment plan should she ask for? I know she doesn't have enough to pay off that balance in 1 payment.

Since it's only roughly 1k, DEFINITELY go with the payment plan, to halt the being sued process. On their site, it will usually say the different terms you can set up a monthly payment plan. Like 6 months, 9 months, 1 year etc..

If they don't she can call them up and work a payment play up with them, most people are pretty good about working with you, whatever she thinks is the MOST she can afford per month, go with that, because she will pay it off quicker and get that mess over with.

Capital One's Secure Master Card, by far.



Only a 29 dollar annual fee. The interest rate is 20 percent though, but it's a secured card and they have you by the balls already knowing you're trying to rebuild your credit and or can't get a regular credit card and have no choice.

This is the same card I used to help rebuild my credit in the past and it worked wonders.

Interest rate really won't matter to be honest, because if your goal is to get some positive credit rolling, you're just gonna keep a very low balance on it anyway. So by doing that the interest really wont k*ll you on a small balance.

If you pay all your payments on time, up your credit limit if you can, they will turn the card into a unsecured card at some point in the future(6 months+) and send you your money back + interest.

Honestly, they PROBABLY WONT approve you, but you can still try. If you can't or don't want to go this route try an Orchard Secured Card as it seems to be the next best one in the line of secured cards.

I was looking at these for my girl. I was going to tell her to go with the Wells Fargo even though the interest rate is higher, simply because it's a more reputable bank and she can get an unsecured card after 18 months.

rek0nize, which one would you recommend?

The Orchard secured card for sure. The Orchard card is HSBC, which a LOT of people use. I would say the Navy one, but they stopped giving out that secured card about a year ago or so or I would say pay the one time 8 dollar member fee and do that one.

Every secured card company will insecure the card at some point as long as you pay on time and don't carry high balances all the time.

So you have a total of 74,000 available total credit you could use and only 1,500 total in used credit?? If so that is GREAT.

18 Inquiries in 2 years is a LOT to have, creditors look at that when determining giving credit, they a*sume you're trying to get a lot of credit and view it as a risk.

May I ask what the one derogatory is??? That could be the problem depending on what it is. If not I got a strong idea what it is that is getting you denied.

Let me know..

Well, first off, what kind of dispute did you do?? What was the reason of the dispute??

What kind of negatives are they?? late payments?? credit cards/loans you just let go?

It seems you're in about the same boat I was years ago with quite of few negatives.

Yeah it would probably be good to see the pages to get a better understanding of everything and help you out.
