How To Add Something Positive To Your Credit Report
Posted By Ron On January 7, 2010 @ 7:00 AM In Credit,Personal Finance | Comments Disabled
 There are a lot of scam artists out there with empty promises to improve your credit score  through some sort of manipulation. Don’t believe them. Only errors can be corrected and you can do that yourself. If you’re already making regular on-time payments, is there anything else you can do to raise your credit score? Can you add something positive to your credit report without resorting to fraud?
When you review your credit report , be sure to look not just for errors but also for any positive payment histories that should be on your record but have been left out.
Getting positive entries into your credit report may help push up your credit score. To try to get a positive payment history included in your credit report:
|P.O. Box 740241||P.O. Box 2000||P.O. Box 2002|
|Atlanta, GA 30374||Chester, PA 19022||Allen, TX 75013|
Though the credit bureaus aren’t obligated to fulfill your request to add these positive payment histories, they usually will, though they may charge you a small fee for each account entry they agree to include in your file.
No one can guarantee that adding these positive histories will significantly raise your score but it’s certainly worth a shot. The best way to keep your credit score  elevated is to continue to make on time payments to your creditors, avoid using too much credit, avoid applying for too much credit, and keep your oldest accounts in force.
