    Hello,Credit Sesame told me my credit score was 619 but another request shows 559.I needed to rebuild my credit for many reasons but presently to get approved for a mortgage loan,i got denied on Capital One,even on a secured card.i have few late payments,April 2018 made it 13 months of wasted life paying huge amount to a credit builder without any improvements,my inquiry to request for credit builder\repairer was as clear as mud!I even spoke to the guy for assurance before hiring him back then and it all went well,his words of sincerety was what i held on to,not knowing i was been dragged into mud.Ever since i pulled out from the repairer i usually pay cash for all my purchases. Luck came my way when i visited a Credit Forum and few comments showed gratitude to [FREEDOM_HACKING AT HOTMAIL DOT COM] regarding credit repair,increase in credit limits and the last comments showed gratitude regarding him clearing his name off CHEX system.This got my attention,immediately i sent him a mail and just like that he demanded for what was needed for the hack and that was how i got raised to 815 ,the few debts i accumulated was removed.i recommended him to my boss at work and he also proved beyond doubt that he can be trusted.
