A Credit Karma member needed some advice on how to help a friend who had a credit mishap while he was traveling.
One of my friends went out of the country for two years, and before he left, he cancelled all of his credit cards besides one. When he came back, he found out he missed one payment and it ruined his credit. Is there anyway that he can bring his credit back up? He had an excellent credit score before he left, but because of the one payment that he missed for almost two years, now his credit score is below average.
What should he do in that situation?
