FEATURED QUERY: Do you rely on tips for a living? Tell us more
The Great Recession has resulted in all sorts of record-breaking numbers - more foreclosures than ever before, more credit card defaults than ever before. And, on Monday, we added another number to this grim list: personal credit scores.
FICO, the company that created the credit score, released new data that showed Americans’ credit scores have sunk to new lows, with 43 million people scoring below 600.
Now we want to hear from you. How’s your credit score doing? Has a low credit score negatively affected your life? Tell Marketplace here.
