      In today's lending atmosphere, FICO scores are important determining factors as to whether you qualify for a mortgage loan, line of credit, credit cards, auto loans, and what have you. If you know what your FICO score is, you may be able to avoid having to many inquiries into your credit profile too many of which would have an adverse effect on your credit profile. In "your credit score" page of my website: , I expand on this idea and have links for you to sign up and for a very reasonable fee, get your fico scores. I hope this helps just a little bit !

            In the United States, a credit score is a number that is based on a statistical analysis of a person's credit report, and is used to represent the creditworthiness of that person—the likelihood that the person will pay his or her debts. A credit score is primarily based on credit report information, typically from the three major credit bureaus.

            Lenders, such as banks and credit card companies, use credit scores to evaluate the potential risk posed by lending money to consumers and to mitigate losses due to bad debt. Using credit scores, lenders determine who qualifies for a loan, at what interest rate,
