In short, I had bad items on my credit report that I found by getting a free copy of the trans-union report on myself. I contacted the numbers to the items on my unpaid/ bad list and after about a month I got another free report from Experian. The newer report validated all my items were settled and I called a credit card (capital one) and they gave me a credit card with a $500 limit. That is barely anything.
I am contemplating if I should open a few more various cards to gain credit-ability. in the hopes of getting my score better in shorter time.
Is this a good idea (to sign up for a few more credit cards) or should I stay the course with the one card?
