    Markita Aldridge-Woods: Now, if the account is less than two years old and you have had a mishap on credit, you can significantly change your score by bringing that account out of the past to into the current, especially if it is one of those revolving accounts that we talked about like a credit card, then you can change the status of that account, then you will see your score change significantly.
