Primary or Authorized User Tradelines?
Years ago, several online companies advertised the ability to add “Seasoned Primary Tradelines” to your credit report. These tradelines could look better on your credit report to a mortgage underwriter than a “Seasoned Authorized User Tradeline”. Since the account would appear in a credit report as being individually managed by the borrower (Primary), and because it showed several years of credit history (Seasoned), it had the potential to boost the credit score AND trick underwriters into believing it belonged to the applicant. As you can imagine, the “Seasoned Primary Tradeline” practice appeared to be fraudulent to many in the law enforcement community. Several businesses advertising that service were quickly sought out and shut down.
Bear in mind that, as opposed to a “Seasoned Primary Tradeline”, a “New Primary Tradeline” (a new credit card account, for example) will most likely cause a drop in your credit score. Your score will typically recover, once the New Primary Tradeline has aged for a couple years.
For these reasons, BoostMyScore does not assist clients with adding “Seasoned Primary Tradelines” to their credit report. We also do not assist our clients in applying for “New Primary Tradelines.”
To be clear, BoostMyScore specializes in the addition of “Seasoned Authorized User Tradelines,” which continue to deliver an astonishing boost to your credit report, just as they always have.
