People in Canada exhibit a lack of comprehension regarding credit scores in the United States.
Neither employers nor “potential employers” have access to credit scores. Credit scores are not credit reports; one is a document, and the other is merely a number.
What is your definition of “promptly”? You continue to display advertisements on a page containing misinformation. Please use any ill-gotten gains to pay someone to make the correction now.

Dear Greg Fisher,
After reviewing our article and a reputable source, we’ve decided to clarify our statement to read “potential employers” rather than “employers”.
Page 3, I.A “Consumer files are used to produce reports that the CRAs provide to creditors, insurance companies, potential employers, and other users.”
