    Is it possible to remove a 'default' from my credit report? 15th Jan 08 at 9:16 PM
    Hi, just got turned down for a loan and wondered why so I got an experian credit report...turns out an unpaid overdraft when I was a student has led to me getting a be honest I'd forgotten all about. It was because I'd not paid an owed fee of around 200. is there any way HSBC will remove this? Can I remove it any other way? On my report I have a red circle with the number '8' inside it..which I'm sure is one of the worst possible? Does this alone get me -8 points on my rating? Not sure how it all works. Please help
