No do what i did, Apply for a credit card and see what you come back with if you come back with a secured credit card offer take it and use it responsibly. Every month pay your balance off in full do that for 6 -7 months youll start to build your credit. Just make sure the credit card company reports your activity to the three credit burues on a monthly basis and with continued tresposible use youll start building your credit . thats what i did . Best credit card provider for building credit is www.capitalone.com. Best of luck to you
