Here is the email message that Paul Gennaro told me to send; I made it worth my time.
Your website falsely states, "FICO scores have sometimes been used by landlords to determine the creditworthiness of potential tenants, by utility companies to determine the size of the deposit, by auto insurers in setting rates, and
by employers in evaluating new hires."
At this late date,
your claim is preposterous. Employers do not use credit scores. I looked into it 7 years ago.
