Will paying off a card bring up my credit score quick?
I have never made a late payment on anything. The only thing affecting my credit score is the high balances on my 3 credit cards which are nearly maxed out. So let's just say one is 2,000, one is 3,000, and the other is 9,000. Say I pay off the 9,000 card completely, how soon will that raise up my credit score and how much would it raise it? I'm hovering in the very low 600 scores.
