The Evolving Face of Credit Card Scams

ealar dlanvuli Re:Simple (sort of) solution: (232 comments)

* Building of credit history. The longer you have credit card accounts in your credit profile (assuming you pay them off or at least pay on time) the better your credit score. This lets you borrow money at a lower rate when you realy have to - say a mortgage.

This is a lie perpetuated by the credit card industry. You simply need credit cards with reasnoable limits, and you need to use them for about 6mo. to establish revolving debt.

After that they only hurt your credit score if their balance is nonzero at the exact moment the balance is reported 5-7 days prior to you checking your credit score.
