Re: Experian roles out new credit score

Haha, and I thought Cashcall was high at 120ish percent.  This came in the mail today: a flyer from Plain Green, another unsecured subprime lending company.  It proudly proclaimed, 40% less interest rate than Pay Day Loans!


My cynical thought: "Great, it'll be 360% APR on this loan."


Fine print: 364% APR.  Good grief.


Anything which makes lending resolution more precise so that other companies get down to the subprime lending market is going to be a win for America.
