Contact the credit card company and explain your circumstances. Whatever the problem, you are 100% responsible for the debt that person has incurred. Cancel their credit card (should have been done immediately) and pay off their debt! If you are fortunate enough to have your own credit cards after all this and have a good credit rating and you are paying off this person's debt then your credit rating will not be altered in any way. DON'T COSIGN FOR ANYONE! Marcy

Yes, I am 27 years old I've had credit history for the past 3 years, I have NEVER missed a payment, always paid on time and I only have two credit cards that are open. I cosigned an automobile loan for a "friend" they paid late twice and I just found out my score is 584. BS right.

no, as a loan requires credit, and you cannot have credit until the age of 18. Your PARENTS can, though.

It should rotate off of your credit report about 7 years after being discharged. It cannot be removed.

You cannot get it removed from your credit report. It will be on your credit report for 10 years and it will affect your ability to get loans and other type of credit accounts.

First off once you file bankruptcy you cannot do it again for 7 years. Bankruptcy stays on your credit report for 10 years. Rather to try to describe what the different types of bankruptcy will do to your credit click the link for more information.

It will cause the credit score to decline and will remain on the credit report for seven years, perhaps creating problems for the person to obtain future credit/loans.

You are better off to give the money to someone rather than cosign. Cosigning means that you are responsible for that debt if the person you cosigned for doesn't pay up. The court would have your son-in-law sell the vehicle and pay the bank back and whatever is left over is your responsibility. Go to the bank you and your son-in-law went too and they will straighten things out for you.

No, they cannot be renewed. But they can stay on your file for up to 20 years.

Not really. Banks are very conservative by nature. They have fairly strict underwriting criteria. If you do not have established minimum of 2 years credit, than you must find someone who will co-sign with you who does. Try www.onesimpleloan.com They have about ab 80% approval rate on loans if borrower's meet certain criteria.

Adverse information must be removed within seven years--except bankruptcy, which remains in a credit file for 10 years. Disputed information that cannot be verified must be removed

User Avatar

If they are valid debt default entries they cannot be removed from the report until the required seven years have expired.

Unfortunately, if you are a pepsi person, you cannot complete your degree in four years like the others. Yours will take six.

If the account is legitimately yours, then you cannot legally have it removed from your credit report. However, if you paid the collection account off, it should be reported as paid on your credit report. Still, the accounts will not be removed from your credit report for 7 years.

It will lower your credit rating as finance companies will view you as person slow to pay.

User Avatar

No, it cannot be removed but the information can be amended to read correctly. A bankruptcy discharge remains on a credit report 10 years from the date of discharge.

A foreclosure will be expunged from a person's credit report after seven years have expired from the time the foreclosure was reported. Valid information on a credit report cannot be removed until the required time limit for reportage has expired.

If a person has a bad credit rating, lenders typically charge a higher rate than they would charge a person with a better rating. For example, if a person with 840+ credit got a rate a 4% for 100k over 30 years, a person with about a 650 rating might be offered a rate at 5% or higher.

No. They cannot sue you just because you are 65 years old or older. Yes - They can sue you, if you owe them money
