You need to get a copy of your credit report so that you know exactly what your credit score is. Next you want to look through the report to see if you have any items that should not be on your report.
When you are trying to get rid of negative items on your credit report you need to dispute all those items because it is up to the credit agency to verify if the item in question is accurate or not. If they can not verify it within a 30 day period then they must delete it. Remember that you have the advantage when it comes to your credit score and improving it.
