Recently, while schlepping her new prepaid card, Emmy award winner and “internationally acclaimed personal finance expert” Suze Orman has been saying, inaccurately, that employers use credit scores. However, employers do not use credit scores; they cannot even get them. One media organization who allowed her to make the statment even edited it out.
Yesterday, Ulzheimer wrote, “My request [to Orman] was very simple: can you please stop saying that employers use credit scores?”
The inaccurate information may never end.
