Look for programs that can help you to rebuild your credit. There are a number of small banks that will offer you a secured major credit card that would require you to deposit about $200.00 into there bank.
Secured Credit Cards
Use there card, pay on-time and after 6 month they will return your security deposit and offer you a unsecured credit card with a credit line of up to $2,000. They will also report your on-time payments to the credit reporting agencies. This will go a long way in rebuilding your credit history. Never pay an application fee to join a credit card program. If you are dealing directly with a bank, there is never a fee to apply.
