Credit Cards can be an asset to your personal finances. You report your credit card company to regulatory or consumer rights agencies, if they engage in bad business practices such as abuse or unauthorized charges and contract amendments.

You can have a credit dispute, if the agency reporting the bad judgment does not get back with the company disputing the judgment within 30 days, it HAS to be removed from your credit report. Example: I filed bankruptcy(?) on a auto repo. and the company did not take it off my credit report, I had my credit card company do a credit dispute, they did not respond within 30 days, and it was removed from my credit report.

doing extra credit and get good grades after that report card

Technically, yes, but usually this is not the case. Most major companies will post the good and the bad, particularly credit card companies and banks. Other companies will only report the negative, such as utility companies, apartment rental companies, etc.

Bad credit or any negative report will remain in your credit report for seven years. Therefore, if it happens that there is a wrong information that will affect your report negatively, be sure to dispute it immediately. You can also do your own credit card repair in order to eliminate any bad credit that will be reflected in your credit report.

If you have a bad credit history, you can still avail of credit card applications. It depends on the company. Sometimes, you have to fix your credit card history before you can apply for a new one.

A report about your credit that is bad.

Yes, credit card consolidation will affect your credit score. It will show on your credit report for at least five years, it doesn't hurt as bad as bankruptcy however.

Only if you OWN the credit card company. Credit card debt is a silent killer. Make the choice to carry ZERO credit card debt.

Only if you get an agreement from them in writing. How could the collection agency have any affect on the original credit card issuer? You are dealing with two completely different accounts, one for the credit card and the other that was purchased as a bad debt. They cross reference each other on your credit report, but otherwise are unrelated.

A very "bad deal" the card holder will be charged with fees pertaining to the exceeded credit limit, and it can reflect negatively on a credit report.

The bad news - You will be assessed a late fee. This amount varies depending on the credit card company. The good news - The majority of credit cards companies only report to credit bureaus if the payment is 30 days past due.

not always, depends on your credit situation. keep using and paying off your credit card every month to improve your credit score

There is no such company that can legitimately remove bad credit items on a credit report. However, cooperation with one's creditors can yield results just as useful.

This hapenned to me in the past. I was registered with experian, I had no defaults on my credit report, however a loan company told me that I had a default on my credit report I then told them that I had checked my experian credit report and it was clean but they told me it was equifax where the bad report was logged on. I checked it and it was for a credit card I had never even heard of. Equifax investigated it and found out in a couple of days that I had nothing to do with it. This was in 2007 about when it was removed. its now 2011 I also found out recently that you can actually sue companies that put false information on your credit report.

Credit card companies provide people with credit cards on the basis that they will earn money from the interest a customer repays. If you have a history of bad credit it is unlikely that you will be able to own a credit card with a low interest rate, as providing you with a credit card seen as a higher risk to the company providing it.

The purpose of a credit report check is to check how a person manages their credit obligations and if they have any history of not paying. If one has bad history then it is more of a risk for a company to give that person credit.

It most likely will not hurt your credit to much, When you apply for credit it shows as an inquiry on your credit report. To many inquiries is bad. And opening an account and closing it right after shows instability to your credit report and it sticks there for 7 years.

Bad credit can be fixed by paying off everything. Using a credit fix isn't a solution and may actually harm your credit if the company isn't reputable.

Yes, U.S. creditors cannot see what your credit report looks like in the U.K.

In general, no, having a card on his mother's account will not go on his credit report, for good or bad. If the student gets a credit card with the account in his own name, possibly with his mother co-signing, that will go on his credit history.

In the majority of situations, bad credit items are supposed to fall off your credit report after 7 years, HOWEVER, this doesn't always happen. After the fall of date has passed, it is best to get a copy of your credit report to insure that negative items have been removed.

u sex the credit card and it has no money on it

The Debt goes to be paid by his estate, if there is no money to pay the debt it just bad luck for the credit card company.

Ordinarily, that would be fraud, but from the credit card co. standpoint, you accept responsibility once you make a purchase on that card, in most cases. It will report good and/or bad on your credit once you begin usage. Just keep the card very secure for fraud purposes, that can get very messy if someone gets ahold of that info.
