Credit scores should be banned. They used them to determine elegibility for loans, to insurance, to buy any large items on credit, to get insurance, to lease a home or apartment, to get JOB! Well getting them banned is my wishfull thinking. They are here to stay, that is for sure. Anyone has ideas, credit isuues, stories, misshaps...I would like to know that I am not alone.

They are the trail of crumbs one leaves behind them and one of the only legal ways to assess someones credibility of paying what they say they will pay for..I don't agree that they should be banned, I believe that people should quit delving into money they don't have.

I agree. People that try to blame their ills on credit scores are the same type of people (no offense to the creator of this thread) that believe they have the right to live beyond their means.

Hey, since you can't legally be turned down by someone because they don't like you, they have to have some other way of turning you down.

Sorry, wish I had something...I pay my bills on time so I don't have any credit woes.

so people like me that have nothing on credit, house payed for dont owe anything so havnt got a credit score are penalised by insurance and other services that do a credit check . car insurance give you a higher quote if your credit score isn't high so basically they are saying we are all criminals that will make a false claim if our credit score isn't good enough

so i would be better off living beyond my means owing money to have a credit score
credit agencies another company cashing in on selling useless information that doesn't work in the real world

Essentially. It's a socialist-leaning society so the rules favor the good little socialists.

That's why I'm an anti-social socialist.
