Madison3528j : I owe a debt (less than $1000) to a college and they won't let me return to classes without paying it off. My credit is also kind of bad because of some unfortunate things that happened before I was even 18. So I was thinking of applying for a credit card or loan to pay this so I can return to classes as soon as possible. So does anybody know of any credit cards or loan services that work with people with bad credit?

j Baume du tigre : the chance you will be arrested at customs is 100% if the new job is so great and they like you they could make arrangements for your debts to be paid.

IrrineeFurf : I really don't want to use my CC to buy things online. So I'm thinking about Paypal and I was wondering if I had to have a CC to use it or can I just use cash?

cymnSlini : can apply for a loan from one bank and then another just to pay off the loan from the first? will that help build credit?

NampDeemid : You build credit by making on time payments. Taking out one loan to pay off another is just shifting debt. For starters, you won't get the first loan if you don't have credit history. And you would definitely not qualify for the second loan, if you hadn't made any payments on the first one.

Installment loans build credit by making payment over time. You have to pay on an installment loan for at least 12 months to do much for your credit/score -- paying interest the whole time. An installment loan just for the sake of building credit is an expensive way to buy a few score points.

Smarter to get a credit card, even if you have to start with a secured card. Use the card for regular purchases and pay the statement balance in full every month. That builds credit and avoids interest.

HaubSyday : It takes 24 months of activity to build your credit score. The way you're doing it is borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. It makes no sense.
