Your Credit Limit Is Hurting your Credit Score.

We love what we do, we have helped so many people get back on track by cleaning up their Credit and by educating them on Consumer Credit. Credit is a huge part of our life, your Credit Report is your “Report Card” and many times people get discouraged because of bad choices they have made in the past or lack of consumer credit education.

We know all to well about making the wrong choices and not understanding how credit really works, so this was one major reason why we started Conquest Credit. The problem in today’s culture is “FAST”, everything is fast, fast food, internet, smartphones, etc. We forget to slow down every now and then to budget our finances or keep track of our credit card balances.

For example, one major challenge for many people is keeping down credit card balances. When you have maxed out credit cards, not only will you get into more debt, but it will kill your credit score.

Challenge. 

1. Start budgeting, we operate on a zero based budget and it has saved us thousands!!

2. Pay down your credit cards, for starters, if you have a maxed out card or a very high balance, pay it down to at least 50%, Your goal is to get your credit card to 20% or lower and NEVER go above 20% again if you can help it. This will help boost your credit score and will keep rising if you keep your balance low.

Please let us know how we can help, if you need budgeting materials we can send you what we use and if you need help with understanding your Credit Report we can do a Credit Analysis for you for FREE.

Federal Study Reviews Credit Report Accuracy

Federal Study Reviews Credit Report Accuracy

BY DARREN WAGGONER JAN 22, 2015 11:04am

The congressionally mandated Federal Trade Commission study is the sixth and final review of credit report accuracy. It follows a studyissued by the FTC in 2013, which examined how many consumers had errors on one of the three credit reports.

The 2013 study found, among other things, that one in five consumers had an error that was corrected by a credit reporting agency after it was disputed on at least one of the three credit reports. The study also found about 20% of consumers who identified errors on one of the three credit reports experienced an increase in their score that resulted in a lower credit risk tier, making them more likely to be offered a lower auto loan interest rate.

The new study announced Wednesday focuses on 121 consumers who had at least one unresolved dispute from the 2012 study and participated in a follow-up survey. It found that 37 of the consumers (31%) stated that they now accepted the original disputed information on their reports as correct.
However, 84 of these consumers (nearly 70%) continue to believe that at least some of the disputed information is inaccurate. Of those 84 consumers, 38 of them (45%) said they plan to continue their dispute, and 42 (50%) plan to abandon their dispute, while four consumers are undecided.

The study also examined whether consumers from the 2013 study, who had their credit reports modified after disputing information on their credit reports, had any of the negative information that had been removed subsequently reappear on their reports. The study found two instances of this, representing about 1% of these consumers.

The study recommends that credit reporting agencies review and improve the process they use to notify consumers about the results of dispute investigations, and that credit reporting agencies continue to explore efforts to educate consumers regarding their rights to review their credit reports and dispute inaccurate information.

Other study results can be found in the executive summary of the report.

Access to FICO Scores Expected to Soar

JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America plan to start offering FICO scores they have on customers to them for free, according to a statement released Monday by the White House.

The moves likely will make a score once known in many cases only by lenders more readily available to millions of consumers. FICO scores, created by Fair Isaac Corp., are used in about 90% of consumer-lending decisions.

Consumers have dozens of FICO scores but in many cases the scores they can purchase aren’t the exact FICO scores a lender has on them.

Along with the two banks, auto-lending giant Ally Financial is expected to start offering FICO scores to its loan customers.

Lenders commonly review credit score and credit report changes for borrowers. This includes information such as how much credit card debt they owe compared to spending limits and whether they’ve fallen behind on payments to other lenders that would point to increased risk.

Lenders are feeling more pressure from federal regulators and the news about the expanded credit score availability likely was influenced by the pressure.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau called on large credit card lenders in February 2014 to make credit scores available to consumers.

FICO launched the “Open Access” partnership program in November 2013 and has added Discover Financial Services, Barclaycard, First National Bank of Omaha and Sallie Mae, among other lenders, to the program. The program shows consumers the two most important factors impacting their credit scores. Consumers can only access the program if their financial institution subscribes to it. The program is available to all servicers that use FICO scores to evaluate credit risk.

Bank of America will start providing credit card users with their FICO score later this year. Ally Financial will begin to offer car-loan customers their score next month in a pilot phase, according to a spokeswoman. Ally customers will be eligible to see their score, though they will need an account online, where the score will be made available.

Chase expects in the coming months to offer FICO scores free to its credit card users who use its “Slate” card. Chase has approximately 10 million Slate card holders.

Fair Isaac officials told The Wall Street Journal last month that it expects nearly 60 million consumers in the U.S. to soon have access to their FICO scores, up from an estimated 32 million in December and 8 million when the program first launched. The figures don’t include Bank of America, Chase or Ally.
