Hi Sharima,

Here's the formula. Number One - Reduce all debt balances as much as possible. Reduce your credit account balances down to a minimum of 50% of the credit limit. Balances and less than 30 day payments are the key! Second - Pay off all judgements, liens, charge offs, etc. Make sure that you forward paid receipts and/or letters directly to the credit bureaus yourself. Don't depend on the creditors to do it! Third - You must off set your negative credit with good credit by going to Creditcards.com and apply for SECURE credit cards for bad credit (First Premier, Capital One, Orchard), or where ever you get traditional credit, so that you can begin to establish some good credit. Don't make new purchases with the cards, pay off the balances from the fees and annual charges that incur. Fourth - Be patience and in 60-90 days your will have good credit scores guaranteed!!! Also, no company can permanently remove debt that you truly owe! No one!

Good Luck,

Pay down your debts as much as possible - pay on time and register to opt of credit card offers by going to https://www.optoutprescreen.com - you do not want to have your credit ran often - it drives down your score.

If you currently just lack credit history then you can click on the link below and read my blog "Building Credit From Scratch" but if you have some negative things on your credit report then you could talk to a credit repair agency or simply just sit down with a local lender who knows what they're doing and have them help you.
