  • I am going on 4 months of being with Care One. I have no complaint other than it was not explained to me that the accounts would be closed. No issue there as it makes sense. The problem that I am running into now is that I do need access to a line of credit for business. I have taken a contract position that requires extensive travel, and I need the ability to pay for expenses incurred during those business trips. Flights, hotels, food, etc.... I am 100% committed to getting out of debt, but I do need to have access to revolving credit for use outside of my personal spending.

    All of this being said, my score has dipped since I began the program. I was always in the mid-lower 700's, and now I am in the mid-lower 600's. This I have come to find out has nothing to do with my ability to be approved for a line of credit. The fact that I am in a DMP and the 3 accounts that are enrolled have been closed has caused me to in essence be "black listed" from being approved for any credit.

    I am financially in a position to repay the personal debt within the next 2 months, so I am wondering as to whether or not removing myself from the DMP would result in me being removed from the "black list" and again having access to revolving lines of credit.
