You're right. Seriously, I think employers checking credit reports shows nothing except that well, the candidate is behind on bills because they don't have a job. I know when I was in charge of hiring, I never checked up on people's credit reports. For the reason that I just said. Honestly, that's MORE of a reason to give someone a job, not deny them because they are behind on their payments.

I know of one. The IRS. There should be regulations on all of them. It's ridiculous the freedom they have, like you said. Makes me sick really. Don't get me wrong, I love the USA, but it just is horrible that they will make you homeless and ruin your life & couldn't care less.

Oh, yea!! The higher your Credit score, the lower % you would pay for a loan. Mine is NOW 580-600. (For me)..that's a MIGHTY jump, compared to a few years ago!! Slowly, but surely, getting things taking care of.

FICO score is 350-850
I have seen credit reports in the 390's and as high as 800's! It is not too often to see either of these. Bad credit is usually in the 450-580 range. 720 and above will give you the best is rare to see blemishes on the credit with these scores. But I have seen people in the 700 range with Bankrupcty's still on their credit report...It is just amazing how the whole thing works....lolol...

It was my understanding that when your credit score is checked, especially a lot, it has a negative effect on your credit score.Is this correct? I have a credit score of 765, I am still kind of young 21yrs, but I have been looking into buying my first home recently. What kind of interest rate should I expect on a loan of 100,000?

Basically, the credit scores that are considered prime are between 720 and 850.Also, you must be aware that your credit rating may differ with each bureau. This is because different creditors are reporting to different bureaus so the data from each bureau can differ from one another.

It will definitely imovrpe your score but not a great deal. The majority of your credit score is recent payment history and recent delinquency. So something negative from 2002 dropping off will imovrpe your score it will not have an immense increase. The best way to keep your score up is to not be late, limit the amount of inquiries you have and try to keep you balance at no more than 50% of your credit line.

Let's see you have horrible ceidrt , and you want to borrow $4000. Hm. Nope. I believe I'll pass. Looky here: if you have horrible ceidrt , you're not in a position to dictate the terms of any loan you might be lucky enough to fall into. Lenders look at your past to predict your future and looking at your past, they'll see that you don't pay your debts on time or at all. That said, they'd be foolish to let you have any money. You've already shown you're not trustworthy.This is a pretty harsh answer, but it sounds like harsh is something you haven't had enough of yet.

I have heard on the radio about a program that, if you have over 10,000 in criedt card debt, will cut your debt in half as part of the Recovery Act. Wouldn't something like that hurt your relationship with the card issuer

I think to get everything at low rate, you should have best credit score and to manage this score I think below given steps might be helpful to you...

> The first thing you need to do is know where you are now, in order to know where you're going or want to go. Unlike your credit report, which you can get for free once a year, your score does not come free but it's a small cost and well worth paying for.

> Resist responding to all those "pre-approved" credit card offers you get in the mail. This also includes offers sent to you online.

> Avoid jumping from credit card to credit card. If you "transfer your balance" - a scheme that doesn't hurt you, and gets you 0% interest on your balance for a period of time, sometimes as long as a year - don't close the old account.

> Be stable. There are several ways to impress the stability of your life on a credit score reviewer buy your own home,avoid moving around a lot,get married.
> Rely on your seniority in age. This you really can't do anything about, being older, but at least there's something good about aging.
> Pay your bills on time, regularly.
> Reduce your debt to credit ratio.
> Dispute things on the credit report that are 'wrong'.
>Note that 'paying off' loans increases your score.
> Getting rid of as much of your debt as you can is the first and most important step in improving your credit.
> Build up different types of credit.

It depends, generally 700, 720 or higher are considered good or great credit. If you are looking to buying a car and you are in the mid 600 – 650 and up you should be able to get a good interest rate. Good being 6% or lower. When buying a home (most of the rates are low right now), you can get a good rate being a 620-640 depending on the program. But if you wanted to know what a great credit score is – it's anything from 720 and up.

In general, a good credit score is above 700. You'll typically get approved and get a good interest rate for most credit-based applications.
