SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“Earlier in the year, I expanded and corrected oversimplified content from Liz Weston which appeared in publications including the LA Times, Bloomberg, and NBC,” commented David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and the world’s most successful FICO and Vantage achiever since the invention of the computer. “Specifically, the misinformation stated: ‘More than two in five (41 percent) mistakenly believed that carrying a small balance on a credit card month to month could help improve a person's credit scores’ (http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/many-americans-are-still-totally-confused-about-credit-scores-n764121).
“Today I want the record to reflect that carrying a small balance, in fact, does improve a person’s credit score,” Howe emphasized.
“For the last several months I’ve been controlling specific trade accounts to demonstrate the positive impact that ‘carrying balances month to month’ actually has on the calculation of a FICO Score. And as I’ve reported - and proved in the past - there’s definitely a benefit in terms of the total number of points when obligations are indicated and credit-to-debt ratios are favorable at the very moment a FICO score is generated.
“In fact, with my particular credit profile the impact of not carrying any balances is 52 points from the max high of 850,” the FICO GOAT added. “Moreover, there’s not an individual on the planet that today will achieve an 850 FICO score without utilization present at the moment a FICO score is generated.
“I encourage anyone doubtful of the facts to view the video,” the Credit Czar concluded.
