"Consumer Finance account"

I know this should be in rebuilding but i know more people will respond here.

 

Just got a SW alert that my EQ FICO gained 7 points from 661 to 668 (Gardening rocks! Smiley Happy)

 

Went through my report and found no real difference then Chase reporting a higher balance and where it says "Understanding your report" On the scale i had a real skinny red bar that was nver there before saying

 

4. Consumer finance account

 

What oes that mean???

Bump

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: "Consumer Finance account"

This was on my report when I had an account at Conn's appliance store.  Not sure if you are in Texas but thats where this store is located. I had purchased a dryer and received 90 days  same as cash. This account dropped off and this message went away.
