Advice needed on new Secured Credit Account opened by "accident"

If raise hell

If your report is clean and your score is in 700'a I fail to understand why they think they deserve to hold a deposit on you.

Call them up, make a point of being very pleasant worth whomever you talk to. ...they have a rough job. Tell them something like this. ..

"I'm in the market for better terms, have no problem with you guys, but I've had offers of better terms. What can you guys do to lower my rates, or return my deposit.

Don't tell them what other offers you have, just politely ask them to do better than they ate now and see what they come up with.

I have a question about keeping your credit utilization below 30%

Mar 05, 2016
A bit

I had similar situation. I used a 0% offer on one card. That nearly maxed out that one card and my overall utilizing was about 25%. I'd been actively tracking my credit and I did see it being my score down a few points. I had clean credit at the time and it was a maybe 3 or 4 points that I quickly recovered when the inner card was paid down.

How many revolving credi accounts do I need to have active in order to increase my credit score?t

Pick up another debt, pay as agreed. Not early.

The algorithms behind that credit score are designed to "reward" you for reliably sending a creditor interest payments.

They also punish you for being a deadbeat. From a bankers POV there are two kinds of "deadbeats":
1-those who don't pay.
2-those who pay early so bankers make less money on that debt.

The whole thing is a scam. If you want to have a good score: Be a good rat and keep the little wheel spinning.
