The FICO Score Misconceptions

There are many misconceptions about credit scores out there. There are borrowers who believe that they don't have a credit score. There are others who think that their credit scores don't really matter. These sorts of misconceptions can hurt your chances of gaining employment, obtaining preferred interest rates, and even your chances of qualifying for renting an apartment.

The truth is, of you have a bank account and you pay utility bills, then you have a credit score, and it matters more than you might think. Your credit score can be called many things such as a credit risk rating, a FICO score, a credit rating, a FICO rating, or a credit risk score. All these terms refer to the same thing: the three-digit number that lets lenders get an idea of how likely you are to repay your bills.

Every time you apply for credit, apply for a job, or even apply to some apartment complexes, your credit score is checked. Another misconception is that employers check your credit only if you apply for a job that involves handling money. The fact is that many companies use credit checking as part of their standard background checks.

Make no mistake, your credit report can be checked by anyone with a legitimate business need to do so. Your credit score is calculated based on complex formulas. Things such as your past financial responsibilities, past payment records, credit limits, credit line utilization, open and closed accounts, and public records are all considered. It provides potential lenders with a quick snapshot of your current financial state and past repayment habits.

In other words, your credit score lets lenders know quickly how much of a credit risk you are. Based on this credit score, lenders decide whether to trust you financially. They use this information to approve or decline a loan. Even if approved, your credit score can have a direct effect on the interest rates you pay. Apartment managers can use your credit score to decide whether you can be trusted to pay your rent on time. Employers can use your credit score to decide, perhaps unfairly, how you manage your life. Some employers find that if you're poor with money, you have poor organization skills and no attention to detail -- things that are a must in a corporate environment.

The problem with credit scores is that there is quite a bit of misinformation circulated about, especially through some less than scrupulous companies who claim they can help you with your credit report and credit score -- for a fee, of course.

From advertisements and suspect claims, customers sometimes come away with the idea that in order to boost their credit score, they have to pay money to a company or leave credit repair in the hands of so-called "experts." Nothing could be further from the truth. It is perfectly possible to pay down debts and boost your credit on your own, with no expensive help whatsoever. There are many free resources on the web that will enable you to do just that.
