Subject: Credit Score Booster
 
Posted on Tue Jul 10, 2007 3:42 am  

I have a credit score of 617.I just tried to buy a car.The salesman lead me on to a third party.He stated that because I have a repossesion as of the year 2001($12,000.00).He would rather they take it off for me before it gets charged off and my credit score would shoot up to around 700.This will enable me to get a better interest rate and possible finance a new car rather than pre-owned, not that it matters.Is it worth taking the service.The cost is only $200.00 plus $50 for each adjustments made

I think the offer is good till it is not reported to the CRA. That might hurt your score.

Denon, if you can afford that minimum cost for adjustments made, then i guess its a good deal for you to make. But be aware of the pros and cons.

Hi Sundry,

These are certain ways by which you can make a credit record.

* Open a checking or a savings account or may be both. This does not contribute towards the credit building but definitely increases your reliability.

* Make an application for a departmental store card. Make good regular payments

* Provide with the summary of your past credit report to the CRA here. Get the information from your previous bank or the credit card organization as to where they reported to. This credit bureau of your former hometown will be proof of your past credit.

All the best
Hope this helps you.

Hi There Sundry

Just adding a point to what Laura had to say

You can ask whether you can deposit funds at a financial institution so that they act as a collateral for a credit card. Some organizations issue credit cards with a credit limit of the amount you deposit. You can try this.

When you apply for credit many institutions ask for only your salary and job but there are many institutions that ask for your credit history and turn to the credit bureaus for your credit file. This defines your credibility to attain a credit. thus keep up the courage and keep a good track record for your future endeavor.

Good Luck
Polly:)

Thanks Laura for the reply.Not sure how this could hurt my credit score and the key is that would it raise my credit score.I suppose my thing is would it affect me in the long run or is it just a temporary fix.

Hi Denon

I apologize. I guess there was a misunderstanding with your problem. As far as my knowledge goes there are many companies who make false promises and put you in a mess.

Tell me something, how did come to know that your score will actually shoot up to 700? Is there any calculation on the basis of which the salesman gave you this information?

I also need to know what kind of adjustments they are asking you to pay for. How many adjustments would be there? There are a lot of scams going on. It can hurt your credit history in a massive way.

If you really want to buy a car why donít you improve your financial situation first and then go for it? This is just a suggestion. As per my suggestion do not fall for this, it would land you in a fix.

Good Luck

Hi Denon,

I agree with Laura. This can be a scam. No one can actually tell you that they can improve your score to 700. How do they know how to do it. the CRA's are very stringent with their rules.

What adjustments are they talking about? Is that $200 a one time payment? Another thing, did they tell you how long it would take them to pay off the $12,000 and improve your credit score. I smell it fishy Denon.

Be careful

Thanks for the reply.I have not had the chance to meet up with them yet.I will be addressing some questions before commencing on anything.I would want them to tell me exactly what they intend to do, how, and if it is legal and what are the long term effects.If they can convince me and authenthicate what they say,. then if it is reasonable then we might move to the next step.However I have yet to set up an apointment as nobody has returned my messages.If they are a fish, that is ok because I am a cat.

Denon you are really bold. Your confidence gives a boost and feels good that people actually know how to handle these situations. It would be the best if you dont let them understand that you smelled a fish Laughing and you are a CAT Laughing as well.

Please share your experiences with us. It would be great.

Good Luck
George

I've looked into a few 'credit repair' places. Alot of them 'Promise you the moon". But.....when you actually are 'stuck' with them, and can't pay their fee, etc. The 'credit repair' companies report that you are deliquent on your accounts!! Which can scale your score even lower!! ( Trust me, I know!!) With some of the fees, these companies ask for, you can probably pay an old account off, yourself. As I have learned, a 'good' credit score takes time to improve. Stick with it, and you will be surprised!! " You have to learn to crawl before you walk,etc." ( I like that saying!!)

Yes a credit repair company does not do anything that we cannot do ourselves. So why waste the money which can be used to pay off one pending bill?

This one is really great. Do you really have a store of such inspiring quotes that relate so well to the situation? Smile

Thanks, Laura!! I think it does make alot of sense. Even if you have a low/'fixed' income, you can slowly, but, surely save to pay off debts. You MAY find a company to help you...I don't know. But.....I know there are SOO many people that want things paid off right away ( me, included). But..realilty is..this takes time.
