Are You Ready to Start Your Credit Repair?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a fellow newbie to CB and have had much success in the first 4 months of dedicated credit repair. I have read all sorts of threads started from new guys where its obvious they genuinely need some help. This is an attempt to help you/ them and please do not misunderstand this as being rude or snarky. In my opinion, it can be obvious when you haven't done much reading and that is why you may be getting some of the reactions you have received from other board members. You will have to make an active and obvious attempt in helping yourself before others will want to help you. You shouldn't start any more threads until you can pass the following "test". These questions are bare bones basics that when answered correctly, will show that you have done your home work and have a basic grasp of what you are doing. All of these questions are beginner level questions and no attempts of credit repairing or rebuilding should be attempted until you can answer them correctly. Everything you need to read is in here http://creditboards....hp?showforum=15 or can be found by using the search function. Lets begin!
