||$1.00, pride in stating truth and a clear conscience|
|Rules:||Important people are involved in false statements that employers use credit scores and they must stop.
To win the race, persons or entities on the list must be first in their heat to alert the organizer of their correction. Alerts must be sent to the social media account twitter.com/creditscoring in a public message beginning with "@creditscoring" and must remain. There will be three winners (assuming people on the list care about truth), one from each heat.
Winners receive a cash prize.
Employers do not use credit scores. In fact, they cannot even get credit scores because the consumer reporting agencies will not sell scores for employment purposes. And, even though that was established seven years ago, the myth continues.
Oblivious to their madness, the people and entities below are not helping the Myth 2 problem.
Do not believe the statements below. They are false. The people who wrote them, whoever they are, do not know what they are talking about. Employers do not use credit scores.
