What Is a Credit Report?
A credit report is a track record of both your personal and financial credit information. It includes information taken from public records, personal identification and debt information. Your report will show things like your payment history, your debt balances, items in default, items in collections, and who you owe money to.
What Is A Credit Score?
A credit score is comprised of 5 components and predicts how likely you are to pay back a loan on time. Your credit score range is from 350 to 850. Here are the 5 factors that make up your FICO credit score:
Payment history: 35% of your credit score
This is the biggest single factor in your credit score. All it requires is that you pay your credit cards, auto loans, mortgages, student loans, and personal loans on time. Setting up automatic bill pay is a great way to make sure you’re making on-time payments.
Credit card utilization: 30% of your credit score
This factor measures your use of revolving credit. Revolving credit is typically your credit card usage, how much of your total available credit lines you are using. For example, if you have a balance of $2500 and your total available credit is $5000, you have a 50% credit utilization ratio. You want your credit utilization not to exceed 30% if possible. This will maximize your credit scores. By paying your credit cards in full each month you will avoid paying interest and your credit score will soar.
Your Credit History: 15% of your credit score
This measures how long you have loans and credit cards accounts. The longer, the better. Closing a credit card for example will diminish your credit score.
Credit Mix: 10% of your score
This measures the different types of credit you have. There are 2 types of credit, installment loans, and revolving accounts. An example of an installment loan is car loans, mortgages, and student loans. Revolving accounts are typically credit cards. Someone with a mortgage, car loan, and 2 credit cards have 4 total accounts and a good mix of credit.
New Credit and Inquiries: 10% of your score
If you recently had an inquiry or opened new credit cards or other loans in a short period of time, this activity is going to diminish your credit scores. Limit your inquiries to 1 or 2 per month.
While there are 5 factors that are used to determine your FICO credit score, focusing on your payment history and your debt-to-credit utilization ratio is the most important. These 2 factors represent nearly two-thirds of your credit score.

Debt Validation Letters to Creditors
In 2020, the federal Trade Commission (FTC) received around 82,700 complaints from consumers about debt collectors, and a whopping 49% of those complaints were to report attempts to collect debt they didn’t owe!* If you receive an attempt to collect an outstanding debt, do not pay it immediately. This is why a debt validation letter is so important. We help differentiate what is mistaken debt, and real debt.
When we send a collector your debt validation letter, the company is supposed to send back a debt validation letter supporting its claim. If it can’t or won’t, the claim is likely to be dropped. When you work with Ideal Credit Solutions, this is just one of the steps we take to fix your credit history and score.
Cease and Desist Letters to Collection Agencies
If a debt collector continues to contact you, and no debt is owed, a cease and desist letter is the next step. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) gives you the right to force a debt collector to stop communicating with you. Before this happens make sure you have proof that you either paid the debt off, or definitely do not owe the money. Not sure how to go about this? Ideal Credit Solutions is here to help.
