FACT vs FICTION
Credit scores measure how rich or poor you are. Fiction.
The point of credit scores is to measure how likely you are to be able to repay a loan.
You also don't have to be rich to have a great score. But you have to use credit wisely, pay bills on time each month, keep your balances low
Carrying a credit card balance hurts your score. Fiction. But, let me be clear on this one...
I won't hurt your score so long as you are using less than 30% of your total available credit limit across all your credit card accounts. For example, if you have a credit card with a $1,000 limit, then you should spend no more than $300 a month on the card.
