SubPrimers...Very Good News!

For the last several weeks it has been rumored consumers with subprime CCs reporting on their CRs will see their FICO scores plummet once FICO'S new and improved scoring model debuts this September. JUST IN, THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! So what will the new FICO scoring model do? Simply put, a better job of predicting subprime and prime risk than earlier versions of FICO scoring models. That's it!

I'm not at all surprised...retooling FICO to distinguish between prime and subprime would have opened up a big fat can of worms, not the least of which would be creating a legally defensible definition of "prime" and "sub-prime."

Yep.. I thought I was correct when I originally said FICO can't differentiate between the two. However, after watching the FICO animation several weeks ago I began to question myself. I am glad we got the straight answer though.
