Those people who start building their credit history from scratch know how important a FICO score is. Weird as it may sound, but this three-digit number that can range from 300 to 850 seems to play a great role in our financial lives. You could be a good, excellent or a bad cardholder depending on this very score.
Your FICO score is used by a vast majority of lending institutions to estimate your trustworthiness and their risks.
