An open letter to Rupert Murdoch
Dear Mr. Murdoch:
You published, “A poor credit score can haunt you throughout adulthood, affecting your ability to rent an apartment, finance a car, buy a home or even land your dream job.”
This thing is not a dream; it is a 5-year nightmare. As I already told you, employers do not use credit scores. The myth [is] now out of control and has begun having serious consequences. Send a memo about this to all points of your empire, now.
Are these messages about the truth getting through to you? Haven’t you even noticed the big stink? Are you there, sir?
