What is the best way to fix my CREDIT SCORE?
I think my credit score is funked up. I used to own a house and I missed a payment or two when I was laid off from my job. I sold it and I paid off all my credit cards. I recently applied for a credit card and was denied. I need to fix my credit score. Any suggetions? I dont have any bills because I PAID OFF ALL MY CREDIT CARDS. I cant even get credit to pay down the bills early.

You will need to pull your credit report and start challenging anything bad that's on there. While you're doing that, get a secured credit card - revolving credit is highly weighted in FICO scoring - and use it wisely. Don't apply for a real credit card until your score is in the 600s or so. However, if you have a... More
