Over the course of about three months I went on a desperate auto loan shopping spree. I was trying incredibly hard to get approved under my own name with only a year worth of credit history because I have no willing/able co-signer.
I’ve recieved about 20 inquiries and my credit score dropped over 50 points from the original 730 I had, bringing me from excellent credit to between fair and poor.
Now I know that people usually say that you should stay away from “credit repair” agencies. However, I feel cheated to have these inquires draining on my credit report for the next two years when I’ve been responsible with my credit cards as I don’t have a single late payment and I usually pay off half my debt or more every 2 weeks.
