Subject: Experian, Fox Business, Quinstreet, VantageScore; employers
Experian linked to an article on the Fox Business website in which you wrote, “VantageScores range from 501 to 990, and the breakdown of excellent to bad credit is similar to the scale used to calculate grades in school — 900 to 990 is excellent; 800 to 899 is good; 700 to 799 is fair; 600 to 699 is poor; and under 600 is failing.”
Who designated that tier as failing? And, at what are those in that tier failing?
Also, you wrote, “Even employers sometimes check credit scores to gauge applicants’ sense of personal responsibility.”
What indicates that employers use credit scores?
