Why is my credit score so low?

Why is my credit score so low?

I just checked my credit score and it’s 581, which is pretty bad. I was actually shocked since I only have one credit card, I use it a couple of times a month, and I have never made a late payment. The payment is always more than the minimum payment too, usually a hundred dollars or so (if I even have a balance that high). What is the problem and how do I fix it?

Cashing a $1000 personal loan check?
My brother is getting a $1000 loan check from his credit union in Illinois and will be buying another vehicle with it. We both now live in Wisconsin, I have a checking account at Chase, but his account is at the credit union in Illinois as he plans to move back when his work contract ends in 6 months so he doesn’t want to go through the hassle of switching banks. My question is are there any banks that would cash that check if he doesn’t have an account with them or could he sign the check over to me so I could cash it for him at my bank? The check will be here in a few days and he asked if I would help look and ask around, but I really can’t find that much information."

Midland Credit Management legit?
Hi, i recently checked my credit to see who owned my collections accts. I already knew i owed to Wells Fargo and to Verizon. I just needed to know who to call. So i checked and said MCM owned my wells fargo acct. And Pinnacle owned my Verizon acct. I called both agencies and Pinnacle seems to be legit. They were very professional and their phone ethics seemed legit. However wen i called MCM they seems like a low budget buisness to say the least. The guy told me ok hold on plz. And i could hear him typing on the computer and i heard voices in the back. Wasnt sure wat to make of this. Also, they told me i owed 1400 and if i wanted to pay monthly I’ll pay the full amount, but if i paid it off I’ll only pay 990 in a one time payment and he gave me 3 months to do it. I dont wanna get ripped off so csn anyone advice me on what to do. Thanks!"

Using someones credit card they posted online?
Could I get in trouble for using someones credit card they posted online?

"Is this on my credit, or not?"
Back in 2008, I just turned 18 and I was being young a dumb and decided to move out. Of course I ended up in a bad situation with my ex roommate, and I moved out like 2 and a half months if that, after I first moved in. Then months later I get a letter from a collection agency for $1,2XX dollars. I ignored the letters and never paid it off. Last year when I was trying to buy a car, that prevented me from getting a loan but eventually, I was able to get financed and I got the car I wanted with a pretty good interest rate. Now, I am trying to move out again (with no roommate) I’m wondering if landlords use a different data base to check rental history. When I check my credit, the collection isn’t there. It used to be there but I’m not sure where it went. I’m pretty sure my ex roommate didn’t pay it off, but it appears to be gone. I’m sure there is a record of it some where but I’m not sure where. Also, when I check my previous addresses, only my parents address shows. I’m filling out my application for the apartment and I’m not sure if I should put down that address or not. I want to be honest, but if it isn’t on my credit then they see a wrote it down anyway and call my previous landlord, then I don’t want to prevent myself from not getting the apartment."

Forclosure/Bankruptcy?
My mom and I purchased a home in 2006 with a hefty 80/20 loan worth a little over $280,000. The house value is upside down over $130,000, and my mom and I are struggling to make ends meet and are considering walking out. I have a vague idea how the foreclosure process works and because I reside in the state of Nevada, I know there is a possibility that my lender could sue my mom and I for a deficiency judgment after the foreclosure process has ended. If the lender were to go this route how would this affect my spouse? I ask because I got married in 2008 and not too recently my husband added me to his bank account. If my name is on my husband’s account, could this be considered by the lender liquidable assets they could go after? Should I remove myself from this account? Anyone else out there from Nevada with a similar experience?"

Yes, this was a horrible mistake and title loans are designed to take your money and your vehicle! Any suggestions, how can they find me?
