Yes because it's always going up! LOL. It's pretty decent for only being 21 and it never goes down.

For now it's okay, but soon it will probably stink thanks to the housing market losing so much value.
i'm alright with it. it's not horrible, but it's not the best it could be. with my credit card and student loan payments always being made on time i'm hoping it'll help improve it.
I am not sure what my exact score is right now. I am happy with the ballpark it's in. After we got our tax return this year we paid off my credit card. But we had to charge more on it because of something medical that insurance didn't cover. Our credit card will be paid off after we get our tax return in 2012.
Nope. My ex-fiance had stolen all my cards and maxed them out. He was buying things to pawn so he could get money for drugs. I never used any of the cards and kept them at home, so it never occurred to me to actually open the bills because I knew they were all at a zero balance (yeah...I was 19 years old...)
It wasn't until I started getting threatening phone calls from the companies that I realized I was almost $20,000 in the hole. I did consumer credit counseling to help manage the payments. Stupid move at the time. I didn't realize I could file fraud and have all the debt erased until after I had been paying it for 4 months. When I tried to file fraud, the card companies decided to find me liable because they said if it were fraud, I wouldn't have tried to pay.
Needless to say, at that time I couldn't make the payments and it all ended up in collections. I went from a 742 (at the time 750 was as high as scores went) to a 540. Despite working on it and having zero collections, on-time payments, and a 40% usage ratio, it has only come back up to 645...ugh!
