Dear Mr. Fisher:

To date we have not been able to find corroborating evidence of the consumer booklet's statement implying that credit applications without corresponding granting of credit is more detrimental to a consumer's credit score, than the impact of the inquiry itself.

We will make corrections in the next edition of the booklet, which will occur within the next several months.

Thank you for fact-checking that information for us.

See this message and your response at #1502T

What is the name of a lender who uses the "The Equifax Credit Score" based on Equifax data?

I am not a reporter on deadline. This is more important than that.

Make sure that the top person of your company gets a copy of this, please.

You're welcome.

Who sent you the message in the attachment?

Was there any indication that the top person of Equifax got it?

Who declared 680 a good credit score?

The personal finance expert states that 661 is a good credit score. Meh. See "'The Bar' - Finally, a way to tell exactly what is "good" credit. They actually come right out and give numbers."
