I was denied a recent loan from my Credit Union. Although all my accounts are current, we were trying to figure out my low score. The Consumer Credit Manager from my Credit Union advised me that the TYPE of LENDER people deal with can lower a credit score, regardless if the account is current or not. For instance, if you have an auto loan from a finance company that most commonly issues sub prime credit loans, that will lower the score.
Has anyone else heard of such an excuse?
