Best Way to Increase Credit Score
I am almost finished paying off credit cards that have been charged off and sent to collections. I am lost at this point on where to start on increasing my credit score. What is the best first step to take once my debt is paid off (I can't open any new lines of credit at this moment)? Should I open a new credit card account? Or should I take out a small personal loan?
