I absolutely LOVE this site!! I found you guys through FatWallet.com and I am extremely grateful. Now I know how to clean up my past credit booboo's (through CB) AND how to best organize my current monitary situation (through FW). A winning combination if I ever found one!

I found this board through Craigslist and am forever grateful that I did. Ever since I saw my credit report 3 days ago, I've been furiously reading, learning and developing a plan of attack. Something I should have done years ago but had no clue as to how to start. Thanks a million.

Hello, Everyone

 

I found this topic at an unsual website...R1FORUM. For those of you who don't know it's a motorcycle community. I wanted more info on how cs and cr works and bada bing, now i'm here. Thanks to all for making it possible for some of us who are now aware of these great information and insights on where to start, since i'm a newbie. Thanks again. <_<

a co-worker told me about this site

 

after feeling like my credit was hopeless from mistakes i made when i was 18 (i am 27 now) my thoughts were quickly reversed as i heard the story how my coworker went from a 550 to 750 fico in 4 years by playing the credit "game"

 

hopefully i can get my scores up and go back to living a normal life i.e. not having to put 1/3 down on cars and paying for everything else in cash

I was googling for credit repair information that wasn't being bought or sold for outrageous prices. I found one board, read practically the whole thing and did searches for my specific creditors and the unique issues I have... registered so I could post, and they never sent a validation to my email address. <cry>

 

So I looked for links to other forums, and found you guys.

 

I can definitely say, the format of this message board appears much easier to read and search.

 

I hope that my adventure with credit repair goes as well as all of the success stories I've read here.

 

Thank you all for your wonderful information and resources.

Last year, I had decided to clean up my credit reports and had purchased a few books on credit repair. The info was garbage.* Then a thought occurred to me - there has GOT to be a website or forum on this stuff with better info than these crappy books. So I started entering all sorts of search strings, which eventually led me here and to a forum for collection agencies (oops!).

 

*The worst book was on titled something like "how to clean up your credit after bankruptcy", the author advised contacting your creditor's after the discharge and paying them the discharged debt! How's that for some advice!

Actually, that sounds like the very responsible & moral thing to do!

You DO have a point there...and if you DO pay them, and the creditors accept, you could possibly nail them for BK violations....

 

 

you Sir, are a MORON...what CA do you work for? you sound familiar...have you ever been to collectionindustry.com?

Someone I know from another board told me about this forum, and I wish I had known about you guys a few years ago when I was having my issues with the collection agency I deal with. I'm already seeing things I did wrong. :D I hope to do a lot of reading, and learning on this board.
