    • Provided by: Informative Research, Inc.
    • Myth #1 – Paying off credit card, collection accounts and tax liens/judgments will always increase the credit score
      • Fact: The FICO model score reflects updates from “Date of Last Activity.” In some cases, paying off an old collection account can make current a negative factor, even though the action may be positive and in good faith!
  • Credit, Qualifying and Application
    • 3 Myths about Increasing your Credit Score
    • Provided by: Informative Research, Inc.
    • Myth #2 – Closing accounts with zero balances will increase the credit score
      • Fact: Closing accounts lowers the number of open accounts, which generally improves a score. But it also can raise the overall utilization of credit among the remaining accounts.
      • Higher credit utilization (above 50%) negatively impacts the score—and increasingly the higher the utilization becomes.
  • Credit, Qualifying and Application
    • 3 Myths about Increasing your Credit Score
    • Provided by: Informative Research, Inc.
    • Myth #3 – Public records, judgments, liens and collections negatively impact the credit score forever
      • Fact: Most public record, collections, tax liens, and charge off derogatories are removed from a credit file at 7 years; (10 years for bankruptcies and CA tax liens). All are excluded from the scoring upon expiration
