Hi Joel,

Thanx for the reply!

You wrote, "I believe there is no limit for any credit history that's considered positive; but most CRAs drop anything older than 10 years. Negative information has to be dropped 7 years after the last verifible activity. If you have reason to believe the information is too old, get a copy of your report and dispute the item(s) with the CRA."

Is there a site that lists contact info for the various CRA's?
