Article Score0

I went over the limit by 30% on one of my credit cards a few years ago. The limit was $ 1000 and I had hit $ 1300. I eventually paid everything off in a few months and the card is still active and in good standing.
I think my credit score is negatively affected by this. In my credit reports, the card is listed under “potentially negative accounts” and the only negative thing about it is the fact that I had gone over the limit.
How can I fix this?
If I get the credit card company to raise my limit to $ 2000, would it cancel out the fact that I had gone over the limit?

    Raising your limit won’t erase past history. I’d pay more attention to my score than the comments on the report. Let some time go by, pay your bills on time and request a scored report in a year’s time. You should be fine by then.
