I started my credit repair journey at the beginning of 2013. I pulled my report from all 3 agencies and went through it and started paying off items that I could without putting myself in a bind with my current obligations. My score has went up on all 3 reports about 25-30 points almost at the 600 mark.

 

 

However a lot of the items that are showing as 0.00 balance/ Paid are also still showing as potential negative on the report.

Will those items remain in the potentially negative status for the 5-7 years or has anyone had any luck removing them?

Paid items are as bad for FICO credit scores as unpaid items. VantageScore 3.0, which may be used by a small number of creditors, does not count paid accounts as negatives but they are the exception. Also, paying collection accounts can sometimes drop a score.

 

As stated by a poster earlier, read the newbies sections in the stickies before doing anything else.
