Merryl Lynch is potential lender.  Does anyone understand how a lender can manupulate the score.  Certainly with a low score they can charge a higher rate and even more fees.




Any laws out there to protect us?

I don't think there's much of a difference between a 763 and 713 when it comes to rates... but that is odd unless they are using their own inhouse score
