Credit Scores

Examples and problems
Good FICO               Score

 FICO score of 700 and higher means Excellent or Very
  Good credit. Certain lenders offer better rates and/or
  discounts if you are over 720, 740, etc. Pity, their greedy
  loan officers might never share them with you.FICO
  score from 680 to 699 means Good. Pretty much you can
  get a normal loan. Translating in layman terms you won't
  be robbed too bad.FICO score from 620 to 679 is OK.
  You won't be denied but the terms are not going to be
  too generous. Still you are officially a nice person. But
  you better check the increase credit score page.
Low Fico Score

 FICO score from 580 to 619 ... . Banks,
  brokers love you. Want to know why?
  That is where bad credit starts. But it is
  not that bad yet. They are still able to
  get you a loan but on their terms. Fat
  commissions for them, much more
  expensive loan for you. Chances are you
  will take it since you have little choice.
  And you'll think they your best friends.
  See improve my credit score page.
Bad Fico Score
 FICO score from 500 to 580 is where the real trouble
  starts. Your credit is bad, period. You'll get your loan and
  you won't like it. But you should take it anyway, because
  that could be the beginning of your fresh start. Way to
  get away from bad credit. See repair your credit rating
  for more information.FICO score of 499 and below ... .
  My friend, you are in serious need for help for bad credit.
  There is very little what can be done and while it is still
  possible, the terms are going to be simply too brutal.
  The best thing is to try to repair bad credit first - the
  FICO credit score can be improved!
