Subject: RE: credit score, myth, proportion of balances, Time Warner Inc.
You published, “When it comes to your score, 30% consists of the amounts you owe in relation to your available credit — an equation called your utilization ratio.”
Earlier this month, another journalist made a correction about the same issue. However, he failed to provide the source for his original claim. Peculiarly, even the article to which his story links calls it a myth.
And, who calls it “utilization ratio,” anyway?
