INFORMATION ABOUT CREDIT SCORES
What is credit?
Your credit consist of two main parts
YOUR CREDIT SCORE YOUR CREDIT REPORT
These two work together!
So let's break this down
What is a credit score?
Q: What do the score numbers mean?
A: Your primary credit score, also known as myFICO®, is a 3-digit number between 300 – 850 and is a reflection of your five credit factors. It's almost like a financial reputation of sorts, and lenders use it to determine what kind of loans or credit cards you qualify for.

Q: How is this score created?
A: Your credit score is actually generated from the information on your credit report. Five main credit factors are combined to form your score. Lenders and banks use this number to determine probability of you repaying them. Or else they become like a nagging fly
Q: What's considered a good credit score or a bad credit score?
A: As you can see from this chart, a good score is anything over 670. That means anything below 670 is borderline bad. Let me repeat that: having a 'fair' score is not good. Sure, fair is better than poor, but there's a big difference between a good score and a fair score. We're talking get your 'dream home' or 'that new car' kind of difference. Even a few points could make the difference.

What is a credit report?
Q: What's on my credit report?
A: Your credit report contains things like your name and address, your loan information, credit limits, account names, credit history, credit inquiries, public record, collections, late payment information and of course, your credit score. It’s basically your entire financial history.
Q: How do things get on my credit report?
See what negative items are on your credit report
A: Creditors like banks, credit card companies, cell phone providers and even hospitals, report your payments to the credit bureaus. These bureaus (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion) keep a record of everything reported to them by your creditors. That includes the time you paid your bills late. Also, when that one debt went to collections. Oh, and when you filed bankruptcy? That’s on there too. These are called negative items, and typically, they have a negative impact on your score (surprise, surprise).
Q: How does my credit report affect my credit score?
A: Every item on your credit report is factored into your credit score. They're 100% connected. That's why with credit repair, we focus on making sure your reports are fair, accurate and substantiated, by challenging creditors and the bureaus to verify questionable items.
