Helpful to 32 out of 35 people

BanksStealE. You have written a correct statement. The FICO Credit Bureau is one most people do not know exist. It's offices are in Illinois. That is were all  credit scores are compiled. It's office is in Illinois. FICO is Fair Issac Corproation Organization. It was established in 1950. That is where the 'real credit score is being compiled' and the others Equifax, TransUnion,  Experian is just wjere our credit is being reported. The other businesses goes to FICO for oxmpiling of our scores. The three bureaus will only keep records when they are reported by the companies or establishment we have business with on a day to day or month to month or  every three months. It depends on the business, but making a purchased on credit the companies has their own soure of how to approve your credit and what the score is or not. Right message and it is very true.

Why Your Credit Score Matters

Helpful to 16 out of 16 people

They will consider you a credit risk when you do not own several credit cards or loans some where. I know I am one of those consumer. No credit oinly with my belated husband. That account of my husband is close and I have build my own personal credit. The system is false and does not care about the elderly any way. But we are still living.

Score drop from paying off debt

The one principle I have learned that when the debt collections start receving monies from us. Then the debt collections will star repeorting to your credit bureaus for the next 7 years and that debt will stay on  within the additional years. Letting it ride out, it eventually will drop off in the 7 years with orginal debtors. My suggestions are if the debt is in collections let it stay. The IRS will pay the debt collections for the debt, so yiu paying they are receivind double monies. But the choices are up to each ONE of US!!!!

How to Use Credit Karma to Monitor and Build Your Credit

They lied to you as they did me. I did not apply so they stop reccomending them to me. The  system wants you to be in debt up to your head, but do not fall for their tricks. This is my advice: "Pay them as your monies are available and they will accept the amount you can send, if not they returned your monies for any reason, the Federal Law from Consumer Protection Agency & Federal Trade Commission says you do not pay any more monies. Look up the laws pertaining to these items of interested. I do it all the time & they accept if I send them $10.00 a month. I am paying something, but i usually send more than $10.00. Be alert to these tacts of getting a personal loan it does not work.

The one principle I learned about  bankrupcy is whether it  was doione yesterday or 10 years ago. This is first & foremost will show up, regardless what the situation may be. Creditors & credit cards companies look for bankruptcy and other negative on cb reports.

They post in the agreement that we  accept and will be approved if these negatives are on your  credit report, but lyng they are. You will be denied no matter what they write in their agreements. They will base apporval on negative & credit score which is recorded in FICO means Fair Isaac Act Organination which has been in business since 1980. I looked FICO up  and found their information on the web. Look them up and read their information.

I totally agree with your comments. They assumed we are going to file a claim whether we file one or not. This is my view very illegal and unlawful. I go to the FTC &BBB websites for more valid information, I have found out these companies has  placed fraudlent information concerning consumers. I suggest before you apply for anything check them out first and see what there grades are with FTC & BBB. Another entitiy we are stuck with is we need every credit card being offered so we can build our credit, that is a lie from the pits of h****. I totally disagree with this commerical or any advertisement.
