myFICO® Forums User Guidelines

 

Our Mission

myFICO® provides the myFICO Forums as an educational and entertaining platform for U.S. consumers to share their credit knowledge and credit-related personal experiences with other members of this online consumer community.  We encourage you to visit the myFICO Forums often to read and participate in discussions about such credit issues as FICO credit scoring, credit bureau reporting, applying for credit, resolving financial difficulties, and other topics of interest to this community.  It is our belief that through credit education and taking greater individual control of personal finances, consumers are better able to achieve the financial goals that will help to enrich and fulfill their lives. We hope you enjoy the myFICO Forums!

 

Welcome to myFICO Forums

To ensure that the myFICO Forums remains useful and enjoyable for all online community members, upon registering you will be expected to observe the following the myFICO Forums User Guidelines:

 

Questions about myFICO Forums

New myFICO Forums participants with questions about posting to the message boards are encouraged to read our FAQs or simply post a message and a community member or Moderator will be glad to help.

 

Registration and privacy

While no registration is required to view the forums, participants wishing to post a message must register by creating an account with myFICO.com.  The personal information provided by myFICO Forums participants as part of this registration process is governed by our myFICO Forums Terms of Service, myFICO Privacy Policy and myFICO Terms of Use.  This personal information is not shared with third parties unrelated to myFICO for use for their own marketing purposes without the participant’s consent.

 

Ideas, opinions, and viewpoints of participants

The ideas, opinions, and viewpoints expressed in myFICO Forums belong solely to its participants.  Fair Isaac Corporation does not necessarily agree or disagree with, or in any way endorse comments posted to these forums; nor is myFICO responsible for the accuracy of the content of the forums or liable for any damages resulting from following recommendations posted by community members on myFICO Forums.

 

Inappropriate material

In the spirit of a healthy and helpful community, profanity, spam, personal attacks, flaming, and other inappropriate postings are not tolerated.  Such material may be edited or removed, and egregious or repeat offenders will be banned from future participation in myFICO Forums.

 

Credit Repair

myFICO Forums is intended to provide helpful and useful tips for managing credit and understanding FICO scoring.  This is not the place to exchange ‘credit repair’ advice that encourages consumers to provide untrue or misleading information to a credit bureau or lender for the purpose of raising FICO scores or otherwise improving credit ratings, credit histories or credit records. Such material may be edited or removed, and egregious or repeat offenders will be banned from future participation in myFICO Forums.

 

Moderators

myFICO may monitor postings to myFICO Forums for the purpose of maintaining an orderly arrangement of the information being shared and ensuring that community members adhere to the myFICO Forums User Guidelines.  This monitoring is carried out by individuals designated as “Moderators” by myFICO and identified in the community by the “Moderator” title.  Moderators can also answer questions related to the forum software, myFICO Forums User Guidelines, or other matters to help users have a successful and productive experience in the myFICO Forums. 

 

Failure to comply with guidelines

Privileges to participate in myFICO Forums may be terminated by myFICO immediately and without notice for failure to comply with any myFICO Forums User Guidelines or myFICO Terms of Use.

In a past life I served as FICO consumer affairs manager and myFICO Forums community manager from 2007 to 2012. I'm now freelance writing about credit at SpeakingOfCredit.com.
