If you are unsure about what an Equifax credit report looks like you can view How to Read your Equifax credit report
So far it is very clear what has helped and what has not. Seeing as I have many pointless reports I wish that I actually got one while bankrupt but I did not, which means I am not completely sure if my report ever changed to R9 like it was supposed to.
I did get one days after being discharged, it was before the discharge appeared on the report.
My credit score was a whopping 434!
I wrote about that process in the post My First Credit Card After Bankruptcy
By April it had gone up another 20 points.
For some reason in June it dipped back down a few points to 488
By August it went back up to 491.
491 on August 8th. This is the report that I used when calling Equifax to dispute in my previous post
Incorrect information on my credit report after Bankruptcy
Just a few days later after getting an alert that my report was updated, I paid for another report.
My credit score then jumped by 73 points between August 8th and August 14th.
