    I have got myself into quite a bit of financial difficulty and its proving hard to keep on top of everything. I will admit I have myself to blame because what I did was a quick and easy route but because I rely on it everytime things get difficult I go back to source so it feels like a vicious never ending circle. I had a chance to resolve it when I got a call from Clark Richards but having read reviews it put me off their debt management plan.
    Does anybody have any ideas or helpful advice or links on sorting out my debt problem as I am struggling to nake it to pay day and thats where the problem will start again.
    Thank You

    I have recently been repairing my credit. Now I’m getting a billion offers for various credit cards. Most of which are low limit. In all honesty, my instinct is to apply for all of them. But in reality that would be bad. I want to apply for one. But I have atleast 6 different offers. Can you tell me what I should be looking for in a credit card?
    Right now I only want to apply so I can use the low limit to rent a car for the weekend. I know they will take 300 for the deposit for the rental and another 100 for the car. So if I get it just for that I think I should be safe. The 300 will be refunded when I return the car.

    It used to be listed alphabetically, but now it lists them from least recently updated to most recently updated. This occurs on both IE and Firefox.

    Is there any way to change the way the browsers interact with Windows XP Explorer to revert to the original alphabetical listing? Thanks
    Note: Arranging them in Windows Explorer does nothing when I try to save via a browser.

    I’m looking at a used 2004 Toyota Prius at a dealership, and am wondering if this is a good price. It has 115,000 miles, looks great body and interior (I haven’t test driven it – I don’t want to waste my time if it’s not worth it), ok tires, cloth seats. It looks pretty standard inside – there is a built in screen which I am assuming is navigation and engine/stat display. It is being sold for $7900

    I don’t know much about these cars, so I don’t know if the miles on it are an issue for a 4cyl engine, or if this isn’t a big factor since it is a hybrid. I’m also not sure of the battery life (should they be replaced every so many miles?) Also, are there certain things that are prone to breaking, or are they pretty reliable and durable?

    I have had 3 old (nothing newer than ’92) cheap crap beater cars that have broken down since I got my license a year ago. I am 25, have a low income, and not the best credit (so I may be looking at a higher interest loan). I also live in a cold climate (MN). I am looking for something for mostly in town driving, is reliable, safe for children, and not a money pit. I know a lot of it will come down to what a mechanic says about it’s condition before I buy it, but I want advice in the preliminary stages.
    I am also looking at a 2005 Chevy Aveo hatchback with 60,000 miles on it. A few spots of rust located on the windshield wiper arms, but other than that, good looking. It is going for $5500 at a local dealership recommended by my mechanic. Let me know if you know anything about this on either, or which is the better deal!

    I would like to know if there are any people who assist people in repairing or fixing their credit report. There are financial advisors who assist with finaicial investments for your future but that is not who I am looking for. I am looking for an expert willing to assist in repairing or trying to assist in clearing or repairing a persons credit rating. I need advise on how to go about it also i would like to know what is in my credit report.

    Their lease ends at the end of August. Via email I told them that it will be extended for another year, but we did not sign yet. Now they gave me a list of necessary repairs to the house. I follow the NY law that says that the landlord is responsible only for health and safety related repairs. They want me to repair various broken things which I think are not health/safety related.

    They threatened to stop paying rent until I make all the repairs that they want. I am fed-up with them and want them out. I am worried, however, that they will call the town inspectors, and then argue in court that I evict them in retaliation for reporting problems to the inspectors.

    If they stop paying the rent with the excuse that I did not make essential repairs, and then argue “retaliation” in court, how long will it take me to evict them? How many months of rent will I lose before they are out?

    They are a large family with children and babies. They will probably show up in court with all their children and babies. Will this influence the judge in their favor?

    I paid $300 to an attorney that works with a real estate firm specializing in credit repair, by disputing and of such nature. He hasn’t done anything, he is now unable to be reached? Took my money and left but still around. Can I bring legal action to him? (His company states that he’s doing it on his own). I need a good attorney to help me out, what kind of attorney could help me in this case? Please help me.

    I would like to know how to repair my credit on my own. I understand that paying my bills on time etc, etc will accomplish my goals but I have some unforeseen circumstances that have put me in the position I am in…along with poor choices. I have read about the Lexington Law Firm as well.
    What exactly do they do? To the T, I can write letters but I need to know what it is that they charge for as I can do the same thing and not have to pay.
    Does anyone have any success stories. I want to know how to get this negative stuff off my report.
    So just so I understand. The credit repair writes letters on your behalf to your creditors or bad marks on your credit report disputing the charges? Do they write letters every month or why do they charge so much if all they are doing is writing letters? Does anyone have an example of a letter they would write to a creditor, please send it to me so I can see. saas_1gatorfan@yahoo.com Also, I need to know exactly what they do, I mean. Do they go down your credit report and state that the charges are not yours. There are some items on my credit report that are my dads, he has the same name.

    I know that credit repair companies are real and they can work. What I want to know is how do I know a good credit repair company from a scam? I have heard a lot of bad things about Lexington Law and I thought they were a legit company. I won’t be using them but I really need to find a service that is real and won’t take me for all my money and run. ( Please don’t answer by saying not to use a credit repair company. I know that I can do it myself but I don’t have the time and I don’t want to put the effort into it. I am willing to pay to have the service performed for me.)

    Thank you for any help you can give me.
    bdancer: I specifically asked for people NOT to give me answers such as yours. I appreciate your candor and your point of view, but I don’t share it. I want constructive answers not answers from people looking just to get points. Please, if someone asks you not to give in to the hype and hysteria when answering their question, try to respect that request in the future.

    Guy said i don’t really know if i been with a legit credit repair or not, but please let me know if any of you guy here have the same experience.

    Said i agreed to sign up with this one local credit repair company that offer to remove as much negative as they can from my credit report. They charge me up to $4xx.00 for fees

    now it was about 2 month past and almost 3 if it the end of December. I have a total of 6 collection agency that was reported on my credit history, and each of them has a different amount i owed. Let said, Collection (A) i owed $95 (B) $65 (C) $156 (D) $99 (E) $103 (F) $205

    I was told that they will try to removed&resettled the debt, but must I must have cash on the spot which is they can negotiate and get the bill to lower. For example maybe 65% off each creditor and than after the payment has been confirmed, they will have the credit bureau delete it off my credit report.

    Well, if that is the case, it doesn’t make sense if i can just call the creditor and negotiate with them on a resettle plan without have to pay $4xx.00 to the credit repair company + all the money that i will have to pay after the credit repair company negotiated with the creditor. Let said all collection A-F add up to $620 and they were able to get it low to $400.

    I think i be better just negotiate with the collection agency and pay off with the money i been charge for membership fees with the credit repair company.

    Any advices here?

    I have poor credit from immature use of credit, and I’d like to know how realistic it is that I can rebuild my credit from the 500 range back to the 700-800 range. If so, what are the quickest routes to getting there? Lastly, if I have accounts that I have had bad payment history in the past, if I have money to do so, is it better for my credit standing to pay off the account quickly or to pay regularly on them for 6 months?

    Has anyone heard of United Credit Association? They are a credit repair agency. I want to know if those agencies are legal and if they really can repair your credit.

    We have a bad standing credit, $15K. We are been recommended to pay it off on our own… which on one income it may take some time, or also been referred to go through a credit repair company. I have heard of when people go through credit repair, often years later the debts re-appear on their credit report… anyone have good decend suggestions? Initial goal, is to purchase a home, that will put us at a lesser mortgage payment than we pay now. Please let me know of you experience, if its either good or bad… need answered!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks. 🙂
    Alright, I still dont have an answer… negotiating with the companies is impossible…they will not do that!!! So I need a realistic answer!!! ANYONE, seriously?
    Erik, what you are saying is non-sense. Theres no point to that now. Do you have a better solution? I’d like to purchase a home and not wait for the 7 year mark. Question is do you go through a credit agency or do you simple do it yourself?

    Michael how long did it take, and does the debt re-appear back on your credit report within a certain time frame? I heard of ppl who use credit agencies and then within years the debt and creditors re-appear on the credit report…

    I recently paid off all of my debt that was on my credit and my score rose from 540 to 588. I applied for credit cards but of course was denied. Are there any other ways to open accounts to raise my credit? I have student loans but they are deffered until 2014.

    I’m 19 and sort of have bad credit already b/c when I tried to get an apartment for college I was rejected so instead had to get one in my parents’ name. Sometimes I would pay payments early, but other times I would just totally forget about it and not pay and then I be charged interest..this has been going off and on. So, I have a few questions..
    -In order to build my credit score, is it possible to just withdraw less than 30% or so from my credit line from the ATM then when it gets near the payment due date I can just pay off that entire withdrawal amount then repeat?
    -How long does it take to repair bad credit?….like years? Would I have to pay off credit card payments consistently for many years in order to repair my credit rating?
    -What’s the fastest and most efficient way to repair/build credit?…And how long would it take?…Would cutting my credit card up right now and just stop using it until I graduate from college and get a job repair and/or build my credit?

    my credit score is currently a 568, and i’m only 22. I’ve made a few mistakes, and gotten 2 credit cards when i was 18 that i maxed out and never repaid, in 2008. I am about 2,700 in debt due to credit cards. I am also about another 3,000 in debt due to a closed bank account, money i owed to a cable company, and 1 other small account. My questions are these:

    In what order should i repay these accounts off? Smallest first, to get more accounts paid quicker, or biggest first? Or even the oldest first? or the newest??

    What’s the best way to raise my score?? I dont think paying off these accounts will raise my score, any, if it does it won’t be much. Is a secured credit card the best way to go? I can’t get approved for a standard credit card.

    Are credit monitoring programs such as transunion for me? I’ve already got a credit report, I just have to settle. Would I be better off having a company that will consolidate for me? Or would I be better just to pay off capital one and chase and my cable comp. and everybody myself?

    Please help, I have about 16 months to raise my score from a 568 to a minimum of 630, so I can get a FHA loan to finally purchase a house.

    My husband and I have paid to have our credit repaired its been almost a year and the credit repair company keeps putting us off every month we have been living with my mother-in-law for almost a year and already have 3 kids and one on the way. We r tired and ready to move, our credit scores has improved, The credit company wants us to go through them to buy our home,cars,credit cards, ect. because they send u to certain people to get it done with no problem. Should we just wait or Should we go to apply for loans on our own even though the company keeps saying no dont apply for anything until we finish. But, that might be another year! i cant take it anymore!! FED UP!
