Your Bank’s #1 Lie: Your Credit Score Doesn’t Affect You

Do banks lie to their customers? Has your bank ever said your credit score will not affect you?
If your bank has ever said your credit score will not affect their financial relationship with you, do not believe them! Your credit score affects your all of your major financial purchases.
After conducting a private class on “How Credit Scores Affect You,” one of the participants, Lori P., sent me an email showing how banks lie to their customers.
I am involved in an entrepreneurial program that helps people become business and home-loan ready, as well as get them ready for business start-up. Four of us in the program had attended a meeting with a founder of a bank here in Los Angeles that explained to us how to become loan-ready for his bank. He mentioned that all we needed was a 630 credit score along with other criteria.
I thought, ‘Wow, only 630? That seems easy.’
Then when I listened to your program, it made sense why we only needed a 630 – It would be money in the bank’s pocket.

After reading Lori’s email, I was livid! Her attempts to help people in her community take control of their financial future were hindered by a banker more interested in his financial bottom line than the customers he serves. That banker was thrilled to deal with customers with less than a 720 credit score because he could charge them higher fees. In my opinion, that is outrageous.   How can hardworking Americans get back on their feet financially if banks are not disclosing how a customer’s credit score affects the fees they pay?
Do you believe your bank deliberately withholds information concerning your credit score and bank fees? This happens more often than you may think. If your bank does not tell you the relationship between your credit score and bank fees, you are paying higher fees than a person with a 720 or higher credit score.
There is an easy solution to eliminate all doubts of banks lying to you about the relationship between your credit score and bank fees. They can educate customers on the easy steps people can take to fix a bad credit score.
In most cases, instead of telling the truth about how credit scores affect you, banks across the country are letting their customers pay an arm and a leg in interest rates.
The banker Lori met with didn’t tell her that the difference between a 630 credit score and a 720 credit score was $63,720 over the course of a 30-year loan on a $216,000 mortgage. His bank would earn $63,720 in fees of Lori’s hard-earned money if she was approved for a home loan with a 630 credit.
That bank was deceiving customers with a 630 credit score to the tune of $63,720 over 30 years!
I wrote 7 Steps to a 720 Credit Score because I wanted to help my mortgage clients learn how to build credit and lower their interest payments. Then I decided to spread the word about how credit scores affect you. I went to bank after bank, telling them I would give them access to my book so their clients could learn how to raise their credit scores and negotiate lower interest rates.
Guess how many banks signed up? Not one.
Why would they do the right thing when they could pocket $63,720 or more?
This is so typical of what happens every day.  While the “little guy” struggles to get his head above water, the government is busy bailing out big business because they are “too big to fail.” These very same businesses turn around and lie to their customers. This is flat-out unfair and wrong.
