This message and your response will be published at http://creditscoring.com/int... .

We just talked. Earlier today, I sent a text message. See creditscoring.com/myths .




You wrote, "Most experts recommend using no more than 30% of your available credit each month - per card and overall."

What are the names of two such experts? #1504b

Hi Greg -

Thanks for being in touch today.

I talked to our editors, and they'd much appreciate any specifics you could share about things that you believe our writers or bloggers have gotten wrong.

With those specifics in hand, we're happy to evaluate whether a correction is needed. If you could share details via email, I'm happy to pass them along.

Many thanks,

Abe

Truth test

If the editor won't even correct errors of fundamental American history, credit scores don't have a prayer.

I am a journalist on deadline, and I am writing about your organization.

See truthandfalsity.com/hist... . Are you going to make corrections of the errors delineated on the document at that address?

I picked up the line about a deadline from the outgoing messages of media relations people (as in "If you're a journalist on deadline, please call my cell phone"). I avoided phone calls between 2008 and this year. That did not turn out well.

The deadline is today. Regarding the editor's name, the Wikipedia entry about your organization is false.
