    Thanks for your posting. I would also like to commnet that the very first thing you will need to perform is find out if you really need fixing credit. To do that you simply must get your hands on a
    duplicate of your credit score. That should never be difficult, because the government makes it necessary that you are allowed to receive one free of charge copy of your own credit report every year.
    You just have to ask the right persons. You can either check out the website owned by the Federal Trade Commission as well as contact one of the main credit agencies specifically.
