Bad Credit

People with bad credit tend to be late with monthly payments or default their loans. They might have a recent bankruptcy record in their credit report as well. In this case your FICO score will range between 350 and 639.

Build Your History from Scratch with Credit Cards

† Credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any credit card product. Credit-Land.com uses a FICO® Score, which is one of many different types of credit scores. A creditor may use a different score when deciding whether to approve you for credit.
