I feel very jaded towards the media these days.  I take everything they say with a grain of salt - never sure if I should believe them. Have you heard this one yet: "25% of Americans now have a FICO score under 600".  It's been sensationalized by the media.  I'm not sure who started it but I think the story took off after it was aired on CNN. First I'll answer the question - is it true? Yes, well technically.  Here's the deal: the new "study" which documents this fact uses the "NEW" version of FICO in determining this statistic.  So they are using the new software and comparing it to results from the past which used the "OLD" version of FICO.  A little misleading don't you think. The "NEW" version of FICO is called FICO 08 and was first offered by Equifax in Feb. 2009, and by Trans Unio...

On Wednesday July 21 President Obama signed a massive financial overhaul.  Some are calling this FinReg and some are calling it Dodd Frank.  Regardless of what it's called, FinReg accomplishes a major win for consumers referred to as the FACS Act.  The FACS Act is the Fair Access to Credit Scores Act and it guarantees that consumers who are denied anything because of their credit scores, including a better interest rate, will get a copy of the actual score that was used to make the decision.

Lifelock Settles Lawsuit LifeLock -Yesterday, I wrote about credit and identity theft related services and how some of them either don't really deliver what they promise. As an update: LifeLock agreed to a $12 million settlement with the Federal Trade Commission and the attorney generals from 35 different states  This is a very significant settlement especially for a deceptive advertising case. LifeLock probably didn't want to spend the time or money to defend the lawsuit so a settlement was their way of protecting against downside financial risk.Many consumers, however, find LifeLock's advertising perfectly clear and think the value they receive for their $10 per month charge is well worth it. According to Aaron Freeman, a LifeLock subscriber since 2005, "As recently as 2010, a man in ...

Clockwork Repertory Theatre Presents "A Sting in the Tale" through February 20, 2010 Clockwork Repertory Theatre in Oakville, CT picked "A Sting in the Tale" as the second show of its 32nd season. This successful British play written by Brian Clemens and Brian Spooner and directed by Susan Pantely is a wonderful spoof on almost every mystery thriller that's been written for the stage. The Clockwork Repertory Theatre's production of this "wickedly funny" play is about two once-successful playwrights who are trying to write a thrilling block-buster mystery to pay-off their mounting debts. Or are they really plotting the perfect murder with the help of their charming secretary? The nagging wife is heavily insured and would appear to be the ideal victim. It all seems plausible until a stage...
