my mother ruined my credit, how can I fix it?
When I was 18 my mother placed a Macys card and JC Pennys card in my name as the primary person without my permission. I had moved out of my home by then and didn't find out until the stores kept calling in regards to payments. I used what money I had to close the Macys card but the JC is still open and she will not pay in full so I can close it. I had a 780 credit score and now it is down to a 575 3 years later because of her. How can I fix my credit?
