Re-establishing credit after living years abroad
I've been in Europe for 12 years and will be moving back to the States soon. I have fair credit due to my outstanding student loans. Which steps do I need to take to re-establish excellent credit while still living abroad. I need to open a bank account but do not have a Florida address. Any thoughts on this? Will a friend's do even if I cannot show a US utility bill with my name on it? Who can advise on my situation? While I have excellent credit in the United Kingdom, this doesn't seem to transfer. I'd appreciate your insight - thanks!
