Rebuilding Credit
What is the best way to build up my credit the quickest? Should I pay off old existing credit like doctor bills etc all at one time? My score is a 542 and it seems I cannot get out of this rutt. I have a installment loan that has never been late of 15k. I have payed a 13k car off at 27.9% but it is no longer showing up. I get these pre approval notices from capital one in the mail that says I am pre approved for a car up to 30k but when I get to the dealer they always try to put me with someone else and I get denied. It is dishearting my dept in collections is 3700.
