See this message and your response at http://blog.creditscoring.com/?p=2417.
You published, “Being denied a job based on a credit score is not uncommon, especially if the position requires employees to handle customer personal information such as credit card numbers.”
Asked for your source, your writer said: “Wow. Are you actually getting feisty over this? Ask Carol Biaggi, she says it in the youtube video. My company does check.”
However, in the video, Ms. Biaggi says, merely, “Your credit can be the difference between getting or not getting that mortgage, car loan, credit card, or even that job you want as even employers are looking more and more at credit history.”
Your writer does not name her company.
The consumer reporting agencies do not provide credit scores for employment purposes. Indeed, elsewhere, one of the people in the video on your page even calls it horribly false, and the myth of the decade.
What correction will you make?
