Therefore, to get 'credit' I'll have to pay interest? Have I ever said that I believe the FICO should be spelled SCAM.


Wow. I'll present the following (reasonable? you decide...) arguments:

1. You don't NEED a FICO score.
2. It's something that benefits you.
3. FICO targeted its products to lending institutions, not general consumers.
4. And it isn't a scam to those institutions, inasmuch as it is a product that generally performs as advertised for them.
