Is there anyway a person can bring their credit back up
One of my friend went out of country for the past two years or so, and before he leave the country, he cancel all his Credit cards besides one. When he come back to the states, he find out he missed one payment and it ruined his credit. Is there anyway that he can bring his credit back up?

He had excellent credit score before he leave the country, but because of the one payment that he missed for almost two years, now his credit score is blow average.

What should he do in that situation?

Hold On

It's not missing one payment that detroyed his credit. It was the closing of all of his accounts. Also you state "one payment that he missed for almost two years". Do you really mean one, because your phrasing sounds like he missed 24!  That would be the other reason his credit is ruined.
