Did you buy the stuff? Is it legitimate debt? If "yes", then pay it. If your failure to pay on time has led to rediculous penalties, work out an arrangement to reduce those penalties and interest amounts and pay something closer to the original principle. Many collectors are willing to take less than the full amount. Better yet, go back to the original lender (who you originally made an agreement for credit with) and work something out with them.

A Credit Score is actually 3 scores; Your's may be 789, 780 and 770.
A Lender can use any combination to justify their decisions.

These scores will yield a great Interest rate.
The difference between 770 and 789 is marginal, and nothing to hang your head about.

Good luck and may God bless

Go to and you'll be able to get a free copy of your credit report and score. They'll ask you for a credit card as you're filling in the information on the site because you're registering for a credit monitoring service. Your credit card will not be charged at the time of registration. Once you print your report and score analysis then you can go back into the site and cancel the service. If you don't cancel the service within 10 days then they'll begin charging your credit card $14.95 per month. Hope this information is helpful! All the best in your apartment search, Christine :-) ... more
