We have clients that call and ask questions about how to increase their credit score because they recently had foreclosures, bankrupticies or short sales.
Our office suggests that clients get a secured credit cards first through their local banks or an online reputable bank.
Below is a link to a WARNING from the OCC to a Fraud that is currently active in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area. Since we are in Florida, we would like everyone to read the warning and Please do not send any money until you checked with the FDIC to make sure the bank you go with for a secured credit card is licensed and insured.
