I saw many people recommending the services of XAP Credit Solution and I am lacking much knowledge about how to better my credit score. I am 41 and have made a couple of poor choices in the past. I'm desperate to have my kids grow up in a home of our own. I needed help that would lead in that direction and XAP came highly recommended. Yes Xapcreditsolution at gmail dot com didn't disappoint, he fixed my credit and raised the score to a very high score of about 812 from low 500s. I was able to get my first house. Also help to recover fund. Thanks to XAP and his team.

My scores were at low 600's and I had few negatives and judgements. I have 14 credit cards, almost 70K in credit and I was curious - what is the road to an 800 credit score? Someone reliable recommended XAP Credit Solution on reddit and I’m grateful I wasn’t adamant in yielding to his advice. I'm already a homeowner as it is today. I had 1 late payment from 1 year and 10 months ago which was marked as paid on time. I am happy to report I finally hit 800 on two reports (802 on Equifax, 790 Transunion and Experian 800) and the judgement is no longer on my report. The Chex system has been fixed as well. Hit XAP up via (320) 200-9409 or email Goodluck!
