If someone was to apply for a credit card with no credit score. When they pull out your credit history, what happens to the credit score? does it go down negatively?

They would probably want you to apply for secured card. I would try applying for Cap1 unsecure and see what happen before going secured route.

A credit score, once calculated, would be lower due to the inquiry, yes. If the person is known to the credit bureaus, then all applicable information would be listed on that report just like any other individual's credit report.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600
