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!

Re: SubPrimers...Very Good News!

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."

Re: SubPrimers...Very Good News!

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.

dog it will sure be nice when you receive your blue card, so you can whip it out and pay one of your power lunch tabs with your friends and cohorts w/o maxing it out! Steaks and cocktails for four with a $300 CL, not exactly priceless.Smiley Tongue
