How to Quickly Fix Bad Credit Score (Mine Was 520)

Updated on December 28, 2017
Source

The first time I checked my credit score, I had a 520. In case you're not familiar with credit scores, 520 is pretty bad–bad enough that you can't even purchase a cell phone, let alone a car or home. That score haunted me for a while, until I decided to do something about it.

Within about 18 months I was able to fix my credit score. In this article, I'll teach you how to do the same.

Before you can fix your bad credit, though, you need to asses what you're up against. The first thing you need to do is get a credit report. This will allow you to see if there are any mistakes, and will show you exactly what is bringing your score down.

1. Pay off Your Credit Card Debt

I was using an extremely high percentage of my available credit card debt. The limits on my cards were low: $750 on one, and $500 on the other. Out of the $1,250 that I had available, I was using about $1,200. This is a huge no-no if you want a good credit score. I was using over 95 percent of my available credit.

On top of this, I was way behind on payments for both cards, and had to stop making so many late payments.

I saved up and paid off all of my debt. With that done, my credit score received a boost of almost 100 points.

2. Increase Your Limits

If you can increase the limits of your cards, do it. This will really help your score, as long as you continue to utilize debt.

For example, over the last few years I have increased the limits of my cards to over $20,000. If I run a balance of $1,200 now, it hardly affects my score. That's because $1,200 is only six percent of my available credit, instead of 95 percent.

In other words, you can change your credit score very quickly by raising your limits.

Owning and utilizing multiple credit cards responsibly can boost your credit score.

3. If You Don't Have Credit Cards, Get Some

To boost your credit score, you really need to have revolving credit. People often think since they have a car or home loan, they are building credit, but this won't do nearly as much good as having some frequently used credit cards.

Before I had credit, it was very difficult to get a credit card. I was unable to get approved, and had to take out two secured credit cards to get the ball rolling. Soon, I was able to get real credit cards. Once a credit card provider sees someone else took a risk on you, they are more likely to take a risk themselves. You must make sure, though, to make payments on time if you want to maintain good credit score. Commit to never missing another payment.

4. Avoid High Interest Loans

In order to stay ahead of debt, I have prepared some simple advice:

  1. Commercial mortgage loans are better than no credit check personal loans. Why? Because the interest rates are lower.
  2. Home loans are better than auto loans. Why? Again, because the interest rates are lower.

Do simple comparisons to identify and get rid of the highest interest debt you have. This will make it easier to get rid of the rest later.

      A few years back I ran into serious financial problems. I’m self employed and my income dropped drastically. I had a major credit card that doubled the interest rate and I couldn’t make the minimum which in turn made it harder the next month because of penalties. I finally gave up on trying to keep good credit and started focusing on trying to keep a house and food for the family and this crashed my credit history over time. Recently I needed a business loan and no lender looked my side because of my bad credit then I contacted a CREDIT SPECIALIST I spoke to when it all started. He responded quickly and updated him the situation on ground and he promised to help me clear my credit. Well to cut the long story short, this guy cleaned up my credit and raised me high to 796 credit score. WOW, I qualified for the massive business loan and life has been smooth for me with good credit. Here is his contact details : C R E D I T S P E C I A L I S T 4 @ G M A I L . C O M

      It’s good to take risk sometimes. I’ve realized that people who do great exploits are people who take risk. Nothing good comes or happens easily. You may be battling with your bad credit, negative items and different bills but if care is not taken depression might set in. I want to introduce raycreditrebuild to you guys and trust me, he’s gonna help you fix your credit ASAP. He’ll delete all the negatives and boast your credit score. He boasted my credit score from 400 to 790+ within few days. I read about him on trulia and discovered that he’s not one of those usual names, so I contacted him via raycreditrebuild @ gmail dot (com) I’m forever greatfull to raycreditrebuild and his team. I wish I can say everything here which is not possible but all I know is that he can be trusted.

      I have hard inquires on my report due to trying to apply for store charges or things that can build my credit up! It’s beyond frustrating because I want a car and I can’t get approved for a loan, yes I have a job also if that matters. I began to manage my credit and in 3 months i check my report on credit karma and i get to notice my credit went down by 250 points. I was very pissed because i needed to get a car and my score is around 450. I told my girlfriend what i was facing and she introduce me to the Raymond because he helped her uncle in the past. I emailed the Raymond right away with the faith of getting my problems solved. He ask for some personal informations which i gave him and he got started. He got my credit up by 300 points in 3 days and i was able to see my score at 750 the 4th day. I am surprised because i don’t know a guy like this still exist. I just got my 2019 Ford F-450 Last week and i am happy to drop his info here. It might help someone. (raycreditrebuild at GMAIL dot COM. yes

      I just had a past due collections appear on my credit report from 6 years ago and I knew nothing about it. I called the credit collections company and paid the debt. I called the collections company and they said “no” that’s up to credit bureau. I just called Transunion again and they said it was no longer on report. Experian won’t answer their phone so went online, all efforts to correct this was proven abortive and i needed to do this fast for me to qualify for a house mortgage. Few weeks ago I came across this credit expert who many had recommended how he had helped them with their credit score. I contacted him via raycreditrebuild at GMAIL dot COM. and asked if he could help me. He answered boldly ‘YES’ and explained to me in details about the whole process.

      I gave him a try to my greatest surprise he did an amazing job. He removed all the negative items and increased my score to 795.

      Do you think your credit score is bad? mine was worse, I was at the edge of losing my family, when i got saved by an old friend of mine who introduced me to a professional hacker, I was skeptical at first but I trust my friend since her credit score was raised by the same hacker, i had no choice, i was about to lose everything So i contacted him via email at BETTERCREDIT247 @ GMAIL. COM and i must say, hackers are the best. He raised my credit score to a golden score and removed the eviction from my credit among other negative listings.

I saw through Disqus recommendations about Aaron Swartz, I saw everyone commenting and publicizing his good work and get in touch with him. He did not just only boost my credit score to 780 but also removed 3 negative items which included an eviction. I was able to apply for credit card once again and I was able to payoff my mortgage loan. Contact A A R O N S W A R T Z C Y B E R S E R V I C E S – @ – Gmail Dot CoM

      My apartment got flooded sometimes last year and I didn’t have the right rental insurance. This resulted to a bill of $35000 in my name which I can't afford so I proposed a payment plan which was declined then led to an eviction on my credit report. I didn’t realize that there was an eviction on my report until 2 months ago when I was in the process of acquiring a new residential property. The realtor said my credit was bad (610) for my choice of home and I didn't want something lower. I needed the eviction off in 48hrs or I lose it to someone else. I had no choice but to hire a hacker and I read a positive comment about KING ZEUS on Trulia and I wrote him on HA CK KI NG ZE US /@/ /G MAIL/ ... /COM/ Lo, and behold, he was able to take the eviction off my report within 24 hrs and I was able to get my dream house.

Before now my budget for renting a home didn't extend far enough to cover my monthly bills. As a result there are times we were forced to live off our credit cards. A couple of late payments and afew maxed out credit cards took a toll on our credit scores. My credit score was 577 and my bank turned me down due to my less-than-perfect FICO.

      Fortunately, Thanks to ALIEN MAN who increased my scores to an excellent of 780 and deleted all negatives from my reports, I was able to get a home for my family, I saw rapid results in just 3 days of working process. contact (ALIENMAN dot HACKER at GMAIL dot COM) please recommend his service to others, he is truely a genuis at fixing bad credits.

      Hi everyone, my name is mike hansley. I have been married for 6 years with 2 kids. I needed urgent help fixing my credit report and taking away few negative, this did not go as planned as I had expected, I got scammed twice by two different scammers in one week. My wife threatened to leave me because I had taken from our life savings for the credit repair, I was devastated and didn't know what to do. I explained my story to my buddy and best friend he introduced me to KEVIN MITNICK, but told me he only attends to high profile jobs and people who are willing to pay and consult with him. I had no choice because it was my only shot at getting back what I have lost to scammers. I couldn't get his personal number for some security reasons, so I contacted his personal work email at KelvinMitnick64 @ Gmail . Com and explained my story to him. He saved my life a my marriage. He fixed my score in a matter of 48hours, This saved my marriage, he is indeed an incredible hacker!

      I reached out to CYBERSERVICES247 @ OUTLOOK . COM based on a recommendation from my loan officer. Far more straight forward than I thought it would be, After approximately 3 months I had enough results for approval on the second attempt.. The truth is, I didn't even require a loan anymore after my report was being fixed because i engaged in the online trades which i later introduced my wife into and we are still making cool gain in the trade.

      Very grateful for the expedient work. Smart way to do things and we're ever grateful for the results... I'll be sharing this service with friends and family.

      I needed assistance with a few items that were on my credit report that was hindering my prospects of obtaining more credit. I needed to know exactly what options I had to be able to resolve the issues I had so I can move forward with obtaining a new line of credit.

      They were able to pinpoint the very issues that were affecting me from other opportunities. They created an action plan and have since removed every item that was derogatory. I had several medical collection accounts on my report and we were able to get them removed with their help and I've made cool gains in the online trades. The turnaround time for the results was quite quick since I was waiting to be able to purchase a home. I have referred them to more than one family member since! It've been very rare to see a service like that of creditexperts on credit repair and online binary trades. Mail CREDITEXPERTS @ AOL . COM (201)5826719 if you really seek a bliss with your credit report. They offer variety of services.

      Did you wish to increase your credit score to a high 700 with almost all derogatives removed from your report and even make gain in real online trades? I urge you mail ANONYMOUSREPAIR @ AOL . COM. Their services are anonymously expedient so i urge you state clearly what services you seek. You could use my method. I invested $500 in the online trade as a start since i wasn't so sure of their services. I made a 50% percent gain within 2weeks, It was fun as I reinvested $1000 to the $500 initially invested. I made extra $750 gain. I paid and fixed my credit report to an excellent one so I could get anything I wanted but the trades was sufficient for me to afford the things I wanted so I continued with the trades. I still make a lot of gains in the trades. The choice is yours for any of their services or you could make use of my method which is, invest first and use the trade gains to fix your credit report. Please Don't forget to mention me as your referral.

      My name is Anthony from NJ, I became a big fan of captainspyhacker2@gmailcom after he helped me repair my credit with his skills and knowledge. I had 12 account and negative on each credit bureaus an error when I was young a lot of us do have it because we wasn’t taught about credit my score was 488 after offering me his service, with Experian I got 8 account deleted and my score jump to 771. With TransUnion it was 472 with 12 account and after offering me his service 781 with 8 account deleted. With Equifax I had 12 account with 8 account Deleted, my score was 466 and now I’m 810.

      I suggest you all contact my helper via email (Hackmania_9 (at) Outlook .(com)we decided to shop around for a second mortgage. We operate an HELOC account for us to have control over interest costs and of course of to have easy access to our home equity loan. I was denied when i applied, i never knew that we have up to 8 collections on some of m accounts. i got to know when a lender checked the history of my credit report.This negatives was from 3 to 4 years when we got our 3rd credit card and also my score was around 600.So all we need as at this period was to get a clean sheet of report and a score of above 650,Said the Lender.We got worried and decided to stop the process.Barely two weeks i read a review and i saw a comment on how this dude raised a score and credit limit increase.I needed help so i took the chance to tease the dude in order for me to be sure he can assist me. To cut the long story short ,that was how i got my report clear from debts and i had my score raised up to 800.i appreciate your work sir.Thank you.

      After finding the home of our dreams, we quickly realized we needed to bring our credit scores up to qualify for an FHA loan. Our mortgage professional friend referred us to (EAGLESEYE [.] HACK [@] GMAIL [.] COM)

      Their professionalism and quick attention to our needs made our dream of owning a home a reality. They were able to bring our credit scores up significantly in a matter of weeks while other companies wanted to over charge and couldn’t commit to a tight timeframe.

      The personal touch and communications provided by them exuded customer service and went above our expectations. Thank you so much for making the process easy!

      After graduating from college, I had bad credit Score. Having collections, charge-offs, and late pays prevented me from getting qualified for mortgages, auto loans, and even jobs! However, I got it fixed with the help of my childhood friend (computer.surgeon @ outlook. com) who increased my credit score from 450 to 807. I'm now a full-time real estate investor with 63 units. I leverage my credit to obtain passive income via real estate. You can too! If you need your credit repair, we can help you. All you have to do is contact Computer.sugeon @ outlook. com

      I lost my house about 5 years ago, my credit was so poor that, i had a tone of medical bills in collection, I can't afford to rent a comfortable home to live, because even land lords run credit checks it was the most horrible and screwed moment of my life . i knew i had to do something to get back on track and I read about this credit coach on google captain spy (captainspyhacker2 AT gmail DOT com) who had helped so many people, I finally give him a try. I wrote a letter for each thing on my credit report basically, and he gave me the assurance that he will fix these It looked weird to me at first but a month later my credit which was low increase which I also confirm it on credit reporting agency file. This is totally incredible i can now buy a home. Signing the papers in a week. Thanks Captain I really appreciate man!

      After 3 serious back surgeries, hiring someone to operate my funeral homes for 6 months after each surgery and a battle fought divorce, my credit went from good to very bad.

      Pay off your debt? This girl needs to learn more about credit.

      There are many ways to boost, read read read. Pay off your debt, this is nice but if you pay it off your score may not move, you need a bit of debt to have a good score.

      A rule of thumb with credit cards is never use more than 1/3 (33%) of your total revolving (credit card) balance. If you are using over 1/3, it will hurt your credit score. Also, inquiries are only 10% of your credit score. 0 in the last two years is perfect, but it really doesn't start hurting you too bad until you are at 5 or more. Another thing to remember, if you have a credit card that you just don't use any more, DO NOT CLOSE IT. That will lower the average age of your accounts and, in turn, hurt your credit score.

      Thank you for your advice. I will especially take into account the credit cards full usage, as I tend to do that as well and then just pay the high interest.

      Do what you can to get them paid off siller. It's going to be really hard to buy a home at some point if they ruin your credit

      The inquiries won't hurt you hardly at all. An inquiry or two each year is expected. If the other accounts are closed they probably won't hurt you unless they were closed for default. You should probably look into what they are.

      Yeah Jarrod it's possible in some situations. It isn't exactly the score that they look at. Most people with a score in that range won't be able to qualify.
