Understanding how your credit record is calculated is important knowledge to have whether you have been blacklisted, affected by bad credit, or not. When you understand the process by which information is gathered, it makes it easier to investigate problems or rectify the situation and get your credit record back on track.

A credit record is an accumulation of data based on all the payments you have either made or missed and every time a payment is either made or missed, your credit record will change accordingly. When applying for new credit such as a loan for a car or house, banks can pull this information to determine whether or not you are a good risk based on your credit history.

What can you do to rectify bad credit if you have been blacklisted?
