Hey everyone! So I opened my first credit card ten years ago when I was 18. 3 years after that, I got into some trouble with the economy hitting, lost my job, and all of my credit cards went to collections. I had opened a Car Toys credit card in 2006 and they automatically closed it in 2007 because I didn’t use it. That’s the only saving grace I have for my average age of accounts and history. All of my other accounts are dropping off right now because they were in collections, and eventually charged off in bankruptcy. Have you ever heard of successfully asking the credit bureaus to keep old accounts on your record longer than 10 years? Thank You 🙂
