When we went to buy our house my wife had no credit history at all, which killed the rates available to us. After that experience we used a simple way to build up her rating.

We bought a $1000, 12 month CD from our bank, then used it as collateral on a secured loan for $1000 at the same bank. We setup the payments so they'd be paid automatically every month. After a year she finally had a positive credit history.

No hassle by Capital One! Yeah right.
Nice to see their credit policy screwing up peoples credit scores.
