Credit | Derogatory Marks KILL Your Fico Score

In regards to credit, derogatory marks really hurts your credit score. After 7 years derogatory marks can fall off your credit report which in turn will increase your fico/credit score.

I had 1 derogatory mark fall of my credit report and my credit score shot up 47 points. If you can help try to keep all your accounts up to date so that you can avoid hurting your overall credit score.

    I have a debt collection but it hasn’t appeared on my credit score yet, it’s brand new. My question is will it end up showing on my credit report even though I already paid it off? Because as soon as I found out I’m on debt collections I paid it off immediately. Will it still be reported?

    How can we get rid of derogatory marks

  3. Ryan Brown says:

    It’s also important to note that the remarks will affect scores of individuals with a high score much more than those with a lower score. I’m cleaning up my credit now. I’m now at around 580 on the TransUnion side and 650 on the Equifax side. My TransUnion score will only increase by 3 points with the removal of any derogatory remarks. I even settled on a 14k closed account, still 3 points. Equifax gave me significant score increases though.

    I had one fall off recently and just paid my last one off today. They did say they would completely remove it off my report(only 64$) my question is does a car I had from 2011 effect my credit score.. ? It shows as been closed and collections forever, but still says I didn’t pay XXXXX amount . Does that effect me? I wonder because my other charge fell off completely and Can’t see it anymore, and so will this one that I just paid, so why is my car there from 2011? If I can see it can’t everyone see it? Thanks !

    I applied to 3 credit cards and only 1 accepted me. Will the two applications that were denied affect my credit score or be shown as a bad thing?

  16. Sha l says:

    Does the mark drop your credit score each year it remains or does it drop monthly before it was removed?

  17. SixFootFemme says:

    How do you get collector to accept a " pay for delete".? I have a valid collection account. JUST ONE and those points would be amazing. I would love to pay it now but if it won't change my score drastically, it won't be my priority.
