Should I recon denied Amazon card over wrong credit score?

Hi, everyone,

On my CRAs, I have a paid federal tax lien from 2011, a paid judgment from 2010, and one installment loan (auto) that is paid on time every time. I recently applied for an Amazon store card (GE money) but was denied. Do you think I should try to recon? I just got a Capital One secured card but it won’t have any reporting yet because it’s so new. This is what the denial letter gave as reasons:

 

Too few revolving accounts

Too many inquiries in the last six months

Lack of bank revolving information

Account in collection or 60 days past due or adverse public records

 

The letter also says my credit score was 417. Ridiculous. They pulled TU, and according to FICO, my score at the time was 649.

 

Do you think it’s worth disputing the score reported with TU, or reconning GE?

 

Thanks for your advice.

Actually, to update, GE's letter says the credit score they cite was developed by them. Anyway, do you think it's worth trying to recon? Thanks.

Always try a recon but I believe that score is too low for them to approve. Work on getting your reports cleaned up would be the best course of action before apping for more unsecured credit.

Agreed. With no revolving trade line and two major delinquincies I would be shocked if you received an approval.

      I have a total of three (3) State Tax Liens on 2 or more of my credit reports. This information is killing my score and any chances of getting my APRs reduced or credit limits and or new approvals. (Still in review process - things still murky). Trying to clean up as much as possible without causing any inquiries and would like to raise my score within the next 30 days as much as possible. My overall status is a high debt ratio. However, I am under the 45% mark with my part-time income. Each week, I will get the majority of my credit cards to 30% availability on cards with a lower balance. Which leaves the larger cc accounts with high balances.
       
      1 - States that it has been Satisfied - However, it was an error. I never did owe. I had moved from the state and wasn't required to file. However, they keep giving me the generic response when I request removal due to error. That don't seem to be reviewing at all. Just the same response. It has "BEEN SATISFIED".
       
      Any recommendations
       
      2 - States that it has been Satisfied - It was paid in FULL, SATISFIED.
       
      One credit bureau will not investigate any more. Or, later they will let me know that there has been no change.
       
       
      Any recommendations. I am trying to increase my credit score. I will be applying for a mortgage within the next 30 days.
       
       
      3 - States an incorrect amount due because I am currently making monthly payments.

      Noticed this on the Barclays site. Any thoughts on this? Is there a BOA US Air product I don't know about? I think there use to be a BOA US Air debit card...

      Anyone know much about Suntrust credit cards?
       
      I have an old student loan backed by them but that's my only experience with Suntrust.
       
      Doesn't look like anything too exciting but not too bad either. Not much of anything in credit pulls.

      Anyone want to be a GP for one?
       
      The cash back card is 2% up to $6k on gas and grocery then goes to 1%.

      Hi,
       
      I'm about to apply for a mortgage so I will have 2 mortage companies do a hard pull for my credit, from what I read hard pulls within one week are not that bad, so I was thinking I can also apply for higher credit limits with the credit cards that require a hard pull, apply for better home insurance rates (which I think do a hard pull also), etc during this period, is this a good idea? How many points should I expect to lose on my score?
       
      Thanks!

      DW was just approved for NASA Visa Platinum Rewards, $13K, 9.9%
       
      I'm trying to make sure she has a complete credit profile, she has no credit unions yet. Although, she was just accepted to Navy FCU (based on my membership). CC application there is "pending".
       
      Her FICO scores:
       
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
       
      The NASA HP has not shown up yet, but I'm guessing it will be Experian like mine was.
