See this message and your response at http://blog.creditscoring.com/?p=3224.
Your website states: “Our FICO score is used in about everything in our life. From what we pay in interest on loans, car insurance, getting an apartment or even a job and more.”
That statement is inaccurate; the consumer reporting agencies do not provide credit scores for employment purposes.
What are you doing to correct that inaccurate information?
You provided the certification program for American Financial Solutions, “a division of the North Seattle Community College Foundation,” who states the same thing.
