    I just purchased a new car and had never checked my score before, they told me mine was 717. I know that's far from perfect, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Out of curiosity, what is yours?

    Yikes, what happened?

    LOL!!

    Wow. I thought it only went to 800... shows how much I know. Like I said in the OP, I've never even checked it. I'm just very conscious with regards to my cards and such.

    I don't know bill but if I did, I probably wouldn't pay him.

    How is it impossible? I'm 59 years old, never made a late payment in my life. Paid off the mortgage on my house and have zero debt..

    Don't know. Never owned a credit card, never taken out loans, and never had a payment on anything. I am still in college so I am not that far away from bills pouring in.

    Reason it is down is because of two credit cards. Getting that fixed.

    Interesting note: credit card is unsecured credit so your credit score would get more hurt by not paying on a $5,000 credit card debt than a $250,000 home loan.
