CONGRATULATIONS, You now have in your possession the key to borrowing at least
$15,000 and even up to $250,000. In the following pages, you will find names and addresses
of companies and individuals who loan money to people who think they will never and could
never receive a loan from anyone because of bad credit, no credit, or maybe because they
are self- employed. Hundreds of companies have been rooted out of this program because
they will not loan money to anyone who might have some bad credit. You can receive more
than one loan, just be careful not to over extend yourself with large payments. We are only
able to provide you with this valuable insider secrets since we are not a lender. Some of the
organizations may charge a fee in addition to the fee paid to us, but are often willing to loan
money to people just like you.
The information contained within these pages will help you get loan money no matter
what you circumstances are. This information will change your entire financial future. Before
putting together this information, I told a few friends how to get money for anything they
needed- and they were very excited. The told me when publishing this information that I
should make the type size large and put lots of pictures in it so it could take up over 100
pages. Obviously, I decided not to do that. I knew that the reason you ordered this
information was so you could get an accurate and easy way to get the money you want at a
rate a lot lower than you might have thought.
You may have ordered this information because you are undergoing difficult times
financially. Or perhaps, you need extra money to start a business or go on vacation. Whatever
your needs, the procedures outlined here can provide you with the money you desire even if
you are bankrupt and unemployed.
If you do not receive your loan for at least $10,000 then we will refund your fee
according to our company refund policy, All we ask is that you send us a copy of the loan turn
down notice. This helps us to monitor the effectiveness of this program and we can also give
you further suggestions to make sure you get your loan. When preparing your presentation to
these companies, please make them as professional as possible, but very simple to
understand. Explain the purpose of your loan and if its for a business venture, you need to
give some idea of what kind of profit your project will make.
This information is separated into three sections:
How to get a loan no matter what your circumstances are.
Credit secrets no one will tell you.
One in a million lenders.
Determining which section applies to you will vary according to your individual
circumstances. If you are in bankruptcy or have very poor credit, read the section on How to
get a loan no matter what and then follow up with the One in a million lenders section. If you
have fair credit, you can start with the section Credit secrets no one will tell you and then
follow up with the One in a million lenders section. If you have good or no credit, read the
section on One in a million lenders. Actually you should read all the information contained
since you will pick up many tips on how to get your loan as quickly as possible, but the
guidelines I just mentioned will help you get an idea of how all this works-so you can get
started in the quickest way possible towards your loan.
One Client said: "If I would of just had this
information two years ago, I could be a very
rich man today." This man would have paid
$1,000 to have the names and addresses of
these one in a million companies.
HOW TO GET A LOAN NO MATTER WHAT YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES ARE, OR IN OTHER
WORDS, HOW TO GET A GUARANTEED LOAN
What is Guaranteed Loan Money?
A Guaranteed Loan is any loan (business, personal, real estate or venture capital) that is
based upon three criteria:
1. It depends on some person or organization other than the borrower to be responsible for
repayment of the loan if the borrower is not able to repay.
2. The loan is granted by a bank, finance company, mortgage company or similar institution.
3. The loan is based on the borrower's need, and backed up by the person or organization
guaranteeing to repay the loan if the borrower defaults.
Guaranteed loans are very popular with all types of lenders since the lender is
protected twice (by both the borrower and the guarantor) and very few of these loans default
since the guarantor can put pressure on the borrower to repay the loan. This helps the lender
get the money back from the person who borrowed it.
How Does This Work?
A guaranteed loan is just like any other loan, but does have few differences, namely:
1.There are two or more signatures on the loan instead of just one.
2. You can reduce delays in getting the loan since the guarantor's signature can quicken loan
3. A Lender will like the guaranteed loan since the risk of loss, or not being paid back, is less.
Here's what you do.
1. You (as borrower) find out the type of loans and amounts a lender gives and get an
application from any loan institution that loans out the amount of money you need.
2. Then fill out the application-be sure to give full details of the amount needed, how long you
need the loan for, what the money will be used for and any other information the lender asks
3. Then you and the guarantor both sign the application.
4. The money is given to you-not the guarantor!
If you don't like the word guarantor, then there are other words a guarantor can be
known by: A co-maker, a cosigner, a joint signer. Each of these means the same thing. But
the important thing to remember is that a guaranteed loan is any type of loan that is made to
a person or company which is backed up by two or more promises to repay the money if one
of the borrowers is unable to repay and the money goes to the borrower-not the guarantor.
The guarantor is the person or organization that guarantees to pay back the loan if
the borrower is unable or unwilling to repay the loan on time. The guarantor does not receive
the loan proceeds and does not make the normal payments unless the borrower defaults. The
borrower is the person who gets the money and makes the loan repayments.
A guaranteed loan does not cost any more than a "regular" (one signature) loans. In fact,
a guaranteed loan may even carry a lower interest rate since there is less risk
associated with this type of loan.
Here's the kind of Guaranteed Loan Money you can get.
There are many different types of loans you can get using the guaranteed loan money
method. These include:
Personal Loans: Consolidate bills into one payment, Home Improvement, Cars, Medical
Purposes, Schools and education, Vacation, Furniture, Clothing, Appliances, Really any
purpose-just because you want or need the money.
Real Estate Loans: Buy Buildings, Land or Factories, Build for commercial use, Develop
Land, Buy Distressed Property, Down Payment for Real Estate, Property Fix Up, and many
Business Loans: Buy an existing business or start a new one, Buy more equipment, Expand
business, Pay payroll or past due bills, Hire new people, Lease business equipment these are
just some of the ways that Guaranteed Loan Money can be used. As you can see, there are
many other ways it can be used in addition to those above.
How to get a Cosigner, Co-Maker or Guarantor for a loan.
A guaranteed loan is often the only way a person with poor credit, too many other
debts or no credit history can get a loan. Many times a borrower will overlook this simple
method even though there are plenty of guarantor near them who can help them out. There
are a number of easy and proven ways to get the guarantor you need for your loan.
1. Place an ad in a local paper for a cosigner. I had placed an ad in a paper with a circulation
of 100,000 that read: "$15,000 Loan Needed, will repay in 10 months, secured by assets. Call
555-1212." Five people responded ready to give us the money, and four of them said they
would co-sign for a fee- and all this without wanting a credit check. You ad could read
something like the following:
• Wanted: Cosigner for $XX,XXX loan;
Fee will be paid. Call 555-1212
• Get Good fee for cosigning on a $XXX,XXX Business Loan
Secured by assets. Call 555-1212
• Guarantee a loan and earn $1,000 fee, payable after
loan is obtained. Call 555-1212
CREDIT SECRETS NO ONE WILL TELL YOU
Do you have credit problems? We understand!!! Why not borrow from your local
financial institution? Many people have all the right qualities to get a loan, and they are just
about approved for a loan, until the lender sees a credit report and declines the loan. So
some people have figured out how to repair their credit report and give themselves a good
credit rating. It is easy and can be done from your own home fro almost no investment-but
your time-once you know how. We show you how.
Get started NOW! By following the next step.
READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY!
HOW TO ESTABLISH A GOOD CREDIT RATING IN
AS LITTLE AS THIRTY DAYS!
Besides using existing Federal and State laws to maintain a good credit file, this little
known method is good to get an AAA credit rating or cash loans when you need them. To
work this plan properly, you need at least $1,000 to begin. If necessary, you can borrow this
from family or friends. What you will be doing is opening a series of savings accounts and
borrowing your own money until you have established a good credit rating.
These are the steps that you need to take in this procedure
1. Go to a bank of your choice and deposit $1,000.00 (or more) into a regular passbook
savings account. Wait a few days for the account to be posted.
2. Return to the bank to ask for a $1,000.00 loan (or whatever the amount you deposited),
offering the passbook account as security. Since the bank is already holing your money, it
can't lose by lending you the $1,000.00 (or more), and in most cases they won't even make a
credit check because you are borrowing your own money.
3. Now take the $1,000.00 (or more) that you have borrowed from the bank and repeat step 1
with another bank.
4. Get 3 to 5 savings accounts established this way.
5. After you have established several accounts, take the last $1,000.00 (or more) you
borrowed and open a checking account to make small payments on each loan.
6. Wait a few days and make a payment on each loan.
7. Continue paying each week until the balance is paid off.
Now, when anyone runs a credit investigation, your report will show active bank loans
(which are considered hard to get), a checking account and a payment history for the bank
loans. Depending on how much each loan is paid off, a credit investigation will show you with
paid off bank loans, or loans that are a couple of payments ahead. Your credit will look as
good as gold. Now you can go to the same banks and ask for unsecured loans of the same
amount and more. When they see you have credit all over town, you should not have a
problem securing a loan. Using this method, it is very possible to obtain $15,000 or more in a
30-60 day period. You can also get just about any credit card you want using this method.

Sample Application Request Letter
You could type these letters up on your computer or go to a copy shop and have
them typeset and print them for you.
Loan Company's Name and Address Here
I would like to apply to your company for a personal signature loan to consolidate my debts.
Please send me the necessary terms and information.
Your Name, address, and telephone number here.
TO HELP YOU GET YOUR LOAN APPROVED QUICKLY READ THIS!
A summary of information in easy to read form is outlined below. These guidelines,
should be extremely beneficial in aiding you to prepare your loan request application and
ultimately receiving your loan. We will try to show you what most lending institutions look for
when determining a request for your loan.
When submitting your loan request letter, type or write legibly. Make a good impression
right from the start! Take the time to write high class letters. It is worth the effort! Your
application request letter should be very business like in appearance and should be typed if
possible. You can write your letters by hand, but please PRINT unless your handwriting is neat
and legible. State briefly your need for a loan. Stress sincerity. Also state your current salary.
Be patient. People have a tendency to be impatient with lenders. Do not yield to that
temptation. Having a checking and a Savings account will be to your advantage. If you do not
have both, open an account prior to applying for a loan.
Because of the difficult times we are in, some lenders on the list may temporarily
suspend their loan operations. If you happen to write one that is not taking applications, they
may write back to you and let you know. Unfortunately, some lenders will not bother to reply.
Don't get discouraged! Just write to more companies. PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF!
TYPE YOUR REQUEST LETTERS AS EXPLAINED ABOVE
It is our sincere hope that you will follow the instructions contained in the information in this
report so you can obtain the funds you seek. The enclosed list of lenders are continually
being updated and corrected. Due to the uncertain financial times we live in, occasionally one
of the recommended lenders will temporarily stop making loans, or will merge with another
company. If you happened to find a situation of this type, we would greatly appreciate your
cooperation in letting us know about it so we can update our report.
USEFUL INFORMATION THAT MAY HELP
YOU IN OBTAINING YOUR LOAN
Completing the Loan Application
A creditor who approves your application for a loan wants to make sure he is going to
get his money back. Lenders are not charities. They are trying to make a profit from lending
you money. To insure them against loss, they employ a complex series of scoring and
appraisal systems. While this system may be fine for the people who fit the desired profile,
what about those who don't yet who in their own estimation can be expected to repay the
loan on a monthly basis? In this case, they may need to adjust or shape the applications so
they fit the profile of a "good risk".
It is assumed that you have carefully looked over your financial situation and are
confident that you can make whatever new payments for which you apply. Creditors seek
applicants with a stable and steady income. However, even more important is the knowledge
of your ability and willingness to repay. That is why your credit history must make a good
You must carefully present yourself and your credit history. You can answer the
application questions so as to convince the lender that you really do fit within the limits of their
approval. You must impress a creditor with your sincerity, stability, dependability, and with your
ability to repay the loaned amount, even though you may not fit the standards required of the
The scoring system used by creditors are not only consideration reviewed in granting a
loan. Creditors leave themselves some leeway in making a final decision. They can override a
low score on an application and grant a questionable loan. With a little work, you can
overcome a banker's initial reluctance and get the credit you desire.
Never lie on your application. While you might consider it helpful, lying on your
application may have drawbacks down the road. A number of the items on an application can
be verified, and discrepancies will often cause automatic denial of a credit application. While
reviewing applications, creditors will be able to double check information contained in your
credit report. Your employment and salary can be verified by telephoning your employer. Bank
accounts you list on the application are also easily checked. If you lie on an application for
credit and later are forced to declare bankruptcy, you may not be able to discharge those
debts if the creditor finds out why they were granted under fraudulent conditions.
Despite the risks, some people continue to lie on credit applications. If the person
moves around a lot they may list their permanent address as that of a parent, relative, or a
friend. They may also stretch the length of time at their current residence, usually because it
isn't checked. If an applicant has a cooperative employer or business friend, they may give
themselves jobs they don't hold, inflated salaries, or stretched lengths of employment. When
the creditor calls to verify the information, the debtor's friend vouch for the lies.
Another way debtors inflate their salary is by establishing dummy corporations. The
then issue themselves private stock with an inflated value. On applications they then list this
stock as part of their net worth. In many instances a bank will accept this information as
truthful, having only verified the existence of the corporation with the state authorities.
Knowing how the bank will review the application, you stand a greater chance of
getting the loan approved. If you leave some information out and a creditor is satisfied with
what he does have, Why volunteer it? On the other hand, you will want to include all the
information that will make a favorable impression on the creditor. Appending a sheet of
additional information to the application cannot hurt your chances of being approved, and
might even help sway them in your favor.
Begin by establishing a good foundation prior to your application. Here are several things you
can do to make the approval of your application more certain:
1. Establish a telephone in your name. This will give the creditor the impression that you are
settled in the area. If you cannot afford a new installation, you could "borrow" the number of a
friend or relative. Have the phone company list your name along with their name in the listing.
Make sure they are willing to field any phone calls for you. You could plan to state that your
telephone number is unlisted. However, most creditors will require a home and work telephone
number from you before they approve your application. This will help them to find you if any
2. If working more than one job, list the highest paying on as your primary employment.
Usually, that's the one that requires the greatest level of education and skill. The income from
your second job can be listed under "Additional Income".
3. Clearly state the purpose of the loan. If the loan is for the purchase of expensive
merchandise, you may be required to sign a lien, securing repayment of the loan with the
physical merchandise. This protects the lender to a small degree, making it possible for him to
repossess the items should you fail to repay the loan.
4. Know how well a creditor will receive your request. Some lenders a maintain a lists of
positive and negative reasons for requesting a loan. Positive reasons include borrowing for
educational expenses, to pay for major medical treatment for you or your family, a small loan
to help you establish new credit, home improvements, a vacation, and loans for the purchase
of cars, boats, homes, and real estate investments. Negative request for loans might include
debt consolidation, loans to cover a down payment for something else, cash loans that will be
lent to another party, money for a speculative new business venture, loans to pay a fine or
If you study your status before making an application, and truly believe that a creditor will turn
down your application on the first inspection, prepare in advance to meet and refute every
objection the creditor will present to approving you request. Clarify and lengthen your
response to questions where it's needed. Don't let your application fail only on its initial
inability to meet the standard credit scoring requirements. Make sure you have a good
explanation for every negative point that appears.
Soften objections to your request by having a ready reply. Show that your situation is
not as bad as it may appear. If you have not maintained a permanent residence in the same
location for more than one year, demonstrate that each move was made to improve your
financial earning power as a result of your improved financial status. You want the application
to appear positive. However, don't blatantly mislead the creditor.
Here are a few remarks on some of the basic application questions. Consider your
individual situation and how these factors would color your chances of getting a loan request
Number of Dependents- The bank will use this figure to determine your cost of living. If you
have numerous dependents, you will be required to demonstrate that you have a large
enough income to support them and repay the loan. Don' count anyone as a dependent
unless you are supporting them.
Home- Home ownership is more favorable than renting. However, if you rent you may be able
to show that you have more disposable income than if you owned your home, thereby
increasing your ability to repay a loan. If you owned your home fewer than three years, you
may be considered no more stable than if you were a renter. Be prepared to account for
where you have lived and why. Show that you are a stable part of the community.
Employment History- If you have changed jobs often, your application will be negatively
received. However, if you can demonstrate that each job change was better than the last and
that it increased your salary and improved your position, then it will not be as detrimental.
Present Financial Status- Even if your income from your primary job is low, if you can
demonstrate that you have additional sources of income and that you spend your money
wisely, having a surplus at month's end, you will have a greater chance of being approved.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR APPLICATION IS DENIED
If you were turned down for credit, do not give up. Be persistent. The Federal Reserve
Board list 20 reasons that you may have been denied credit. You are entitled to know the
reasons you were denied credit. The creditor must disclose why you were turned down.
Generally, the reason will be listed on the letter that you receive denying you credit.
The list below may help you anticipate what might come up. Prepare to meet these
possible excuses in advance. If you go in knowing what you might confront, you can be well
armed against any possible negative response your application might create.
Credit application incomplete Insufficient credit references
Unable to verify credit references No credit file

Delinquent credit obligations Unable to verify income

If you are denied credit and decide to appeal the decision, check and see what the
lender's policy of appeal is. The re may be a specific process through which you must go.
Follow this process carefully. If they have no specific guidelines, speak with the people you
dealt with previously. You worked hard to develop that relationship. Capitalize on it.
An appeal is most often made in two steps. First, meet with the creditor if possible.
Fully discuss the reasons your application was denied. Ask how you can qualify for the loan.
Second, submit the revised application for approval.
Find out exactly why your application was turned down. Explain that you know you are
credit worthy. Don't be antagonistic or negative. Be friendly. Get specific answers about why
you were denied credit. What actions could you take that would help get your application
Make any necessary changes and resubmit the application. Make sure you send the
creditor new information on which to base a review. Try hard to provide everything they need
to know, while at the same time making yourself appear in the best possible light. Include a
cover letter with the resubmission of your application. Address it to the lending officer who has
been handling your account. Directly refer to the specific reason you were given for denial.
With the new data you have collected, show how there should be no reason for denial now.
If your application is refused even after an appeal, try a different creditor. Each
creditor is different. You could be turned down at one bank, but accepted by another with no
hesitation. Carefully choose a creditor that you think has less strict credit requirements. Or go
to one in your area that has been actively advertising for new customers. When advertising for
new borrowers, many creditors loosen requirements. Apply to several before you give up.
If your credit application has been denied, many creditors will offer you a secured loan.
A savings account is a long favored method of securing repayment of a loan. You can use an
existing account against repayment of a new loan. Of course, the savings will have to be
deposited with the institution making the new loan, and you may not be allowed to draw
against the principal. However, if the lender has assurance that his money will be repaid, he
will approve the application. What you choose to offer as collateral against your loan is limited
only by your imagination. Examine your current assets and determine which the bank will
prefer to accept as collateral.
Many times, a co-signer can be of invaluable help. Co-signers are folks with
established credit who voluntarily agree to become responsible for the repayment of the loan
should you default. These are usually relatives. Creditors know that a co-signer does not want
to ruin his or her own credit rating, and would be careful to repay the loan if a problem should
arise. You won't need a co-signer on all loans. However, there are times when you might.
Once you have gotten a first loan and established a good credit rating by paying it back, your
future need for the co-signer will diminish.
Locate someone who would be willing to co-sign your loan. Someone with established
credit who trusts you and is willing to take the risk. Most likely candidates are relatives, close
business associates, and long time friends. A co-signer must fill out a loan application just as
you did. However, the bank may have dealt with them in the past or their strong credit history
will likely allow the loan to move through the process rapidly.
After six months to a year, request that the lender remove the co-signer from the loan.
Contend that by this time you have demonstrated your ability to repay. Show that your
circumstances have improved to the extent that you could now qualify for the loan without a
co- signer. This will relieve the co-signer of a burden and will help you establish an even better
credit rating with your banker.
DEALING WITH BANKERS
A good way of increasing your chances for loan approval is by having a good
relationship with a banker. Having a good contact at a bank will help you build your credit with
minimum hassles. Your friend can give you helpful information, guide you step-by-step, and
help you look your best. He or she will also take a special interest in your application so it
stands out from the rest and gets a little personal attention. They may also vouch for your
character and integrity with the lending officer so that your application is approved. You'll learn
more about credit, receive better service, and will get the credit you want if you develop a
friendly personal relationship with your banker.
If you have been a customer at your current bank for many years, then it is more likely
that you can get a loan there. By being a customer for several years you will have established
a record of stability. Long time customers generally receive better treatment than new
customers. Before you go to any bank or lending institution, even one where you have a
contact or to which you have been recommended, call up and ask what types of loans are
currently available. Know what the current percentage rates are. Know the basic information
before you ever meet with the banker.
Once you have a recommendation, make an appointment to meet the officer at his
bank. Having a recommendation puts you in a much better position than if you walked in cold.
Dress conservatively for your meeting. If you are male, don't wear a suit if that doesn't fit your
profession. On the other hand, don't dress in dirty work clothes either. Be neat, clean and well
groomed. Don't try to shock the banker. Women should follow the same rule of thumb; don't
wear ostentatious jewelry or overpowering perfume. Always dress in a business like and
conservative fashion. Don't bring anything along that might distract or annoy the lending
officer, such as children, pets, or packages.
You will only need one meeting to determine if you want to apply for credit and open
your account at the new bank. If you don't have an excellent credit rating, take out a small
loan at the bank you have chosen- secured by a savings account if possible. This will allow
you to build the bank's trust in you. With their confidence increased, it will be easier for you to
qualify for a larger, unsecured loan. Make sure that all your applications are routed through
you contact, and that he or she will be helping it along.
Do you belong to a credit union? Credit Unions are usually more eager to lend you
money, and their rates of interest are often lower. Because you are a member, owning a
portion of the institution by having purchased shares when you joined, you will be treated
more favorably. Credit unions often offer special rates on specific loans-computer purchases,
new cars, home improvements, etc. If you are a credit union member, call them and request
information on special loans they may be offering.
Credit scoring is a method of assigning point values to the various items of information
included in your credit application or on your credit report. The values are then combined and
a final score determined. The scoring system was devised to help creditors apply a fair
standard to all loan applications, and to help them more easily determine who is less likely to
repay a loan.
There are many different scoring methods. As we pointed out, not all creditors use the
same system. One may look at your information and reject your request due to a low score.
However, another creditor, using a different set of parameters, may score you high enough to
approve your application. The credit scoring system allows a creditor to reduce costs
associated with reviewing your credit application. Knowing the statistical probability of how
likely the applicant is to pay his debts, a credit manager can easily determine whether or not
the institution should take the risk of lending money to that applicant. By eliminating those
applicants who statistically have been shown to be bad risks, credit scoring can cut down on
bad debt losses and the high expenses of collecting from borrowers who are behind in their
The equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race,
national origin, sex or marital status in granting credit. The age of an applicant cannot be
scored in such a way so that it denies credit only on that basis. Likewise, simply because a
person is of a particular ethnic background, is male or female, or is married, single, or divorced,
he or she cannot be denied credit solely for that reason. If the person possesses the financial
ability to repay the loan, the institution must extend that credit to him.
Credit scoring systems are designed for creditors by specialized research firms. Old
applications that were approved by banks are reviewed. Each of the questions on the
application is studied in an attempt to determine to what extent that information figured in the
success or failure of the loan. The examiner assigns various point values for the different
possible answers to each question. A base score is determined as the lowest value that will
assure the greatest chance of successful repayment of the loan. Theoretically, no one who
scored below this value on the application would be approved. Thus, if the creditor rejects all
applicants who fail to score higher than the base number, there should be few, if any, failures
While creditors rely heavily on credit scoring, there is a gray area that allows a lending
officer to override the score and to pass an application based upon his personal judgement in
an individual case. Many creditors realize that the point scoring system may pass over credit
worthy applicants, so every effort is made to fairly determine the viability of a loan before
If you feel that you have been denied credit because of the inherent biases of the
scoring method used in reviewing your application, work with your lender to get the credit you
want. Remember, he wants to extend a loan and make a profit for the bank. You must work
with him to prove that you can and will repay the money that you borrow.
HOW YOUR APPLICATION IS SCORED
How is a credit application scored by an institution? What weight is given to the
individual sections of the application? Listed below are the categories that lenders consider in
reviewing your loan application. Read each one and consider your own case. How would you
score? What can you do to improve your chances of scoring higher? Getting approved means
making sure that the lender is assured that he will be repaid.
Length of Residence- how long have you lived in your present home? The longer the better.
You want to be thought of as stable and reliable. A long stay adds points. Although this may
unfairly discriminate against the young and upwardly mobile, it lets the lender know if you are
more likely to remain in your present situation and be around to repay the obligation. Many
lenders have systems that give high points to recent moves tied to career advancement.
Home Ownership- Owning your home, either outright or with an attached mortgage, is far and
away the best scenario. Home owners are considered stable, dependable risks. In descending
order, the better loan risks are: homeowners, renters of an unfurnished apartment, renters of a
furnished apartment, those living with parents or other relatives, other situations. No distinction
is made between homeowners who have a large amount of equity in their homes or those who
are deeply mortgaged.
Geographic Location- Credit scoring is adjusted for geographical differences. An institution's
servicing area may be divided into many categories.
Length of Employment- As with length of residence, the longer the better. Creditors want
applicants who have a steady, secure source of income. Holding the same job for many years
indicates that the same should hold true in the future. A short length of employment is less
assuring to the lender.
Occupation- This is difficult to assess. While it seems that the occupation of the borrower
would be a good indicator of his or her character, there are many different ways to make the
classification of employment under the scoring system is somewhat subjective. The officer
reviewing the application must determine into which category a job falls. A certain job may
then be assigned a lower score by one reviewer than by another. Therefore, it is not surprising
that according to some systems, higher points are awarded to self employed professionals,
retirees, or to employees of large corporations.
The best scoring occupations, from top to bottom are: teachers, accountants, engineers,
business executives, supervisors, dentists, pilots, laboratory technicians, farmers, clerical
workers, civil service workers, nurses, pharmacists, newspaper employees, policemen, firemen,
military officers, railroad workers, skilled technicians and equipment operators, sales clerks,
salesmen, bus and truck drivers, janitors, mechanics, contractors, carpenters, plumbers,
electricians, tenant farmers, lawyers, self-employed businessmen, unskilled factory workers,
cooks, painters, miners, retirees, free lance artists, musicians, barbers, students, nurses aides,
cab drivers, common laborers, housewives, restaurant, hotel or amusement park employees,
lower level military personnel, bartenders, farm hands, and welfare recipients.
Age- Older is not always better -until you reach 40. From there on the older you get, the more
points you receive. Under 25 and through the mid 30's are the lowest scoring ages. Anyone
under 25 gets low marks. But there again, this is the group that usually has no proven credit
history. Young people have trouble getting and establishing credit. People in their 30's
generally have lower incomes but higher expenses; trying to buy a home, raise several
children, and establish themselves in their career. This is when people are most likely to
declare bankruptcy. Thus, bankers watch this age bracket carefully.
Income- The higher the income, the more points your application will earn. It's only logical.
However, middle income applicants are often less likely to repay a loan than lower income
people. The real key to determining repayment viability is to determine the amount of
disposable income a person holds and the overall stability of his or her income. Those figures
are more difficult to obtain and to verify, so many lenders are more inclined to base their
judgement solely upon gross income.
Telephone- Having a home telephone in the borrower's name indicates stability. Not having a
telephone can look suspicious. Some systems give more points for more than one phone.
Age of Automobile- The later the model of car you own, the higher you score. If you do not
own an automobile, you receive a low score. The designers of credit scoring are unsure why
this category is a good indicator, since you would initially think that owning a new car means
more debt, and thus less likelihood of repayment. However, this is a good standard of
Number of Dependents- Having between on to three dependents scores you high because it
means you have a certain level of responsibility and stability. However, having more than three
decreases the number of points awarded. If you have too many you will lose points. It is
believed that too many dependents strains the budget and makes it difficult for you to repay a
loan when there are so many other demands on your budget.
Citizenship Status- Non U.S. citizens get negative points. It is impossible for creditors to
collect anything if someone flees the country. However, banks also realize that most non-
citizens are meticulous about repaying their obligations.
Bank Accounts- Having both checking and savings account gains you points. Not having any
account is very suspicious. You can amass more points if you have your accounts with the
bank where you apply for the credit.
Knowing how a bank or finance company will score your application, will enhance your
chances of obtaining the money. So before you apply, study the system, and rate yourself;
you will then know where you stand and what adjustments you need to make before you hand
in the application.

The above chart is for a non-collateral, signature loan. If your spouse is employed and signs
the application, add her earnings to the monthly income. A score of 18 points will qualify you
for at least $5,000 payable in 24 monthly installments at most banks. The bank will take into
consideration your ability to repay the loan based on your total monthly income from all
sources, considering your present outstanding monthly installment obligations.
YOUR CREDIT REFERENCES
In House Records- Your application will be examined next to the institution's own in house
credit records. If you have previously established a good record with them, it will earn you
points. If your report is negative, you will have points taken off.
Credit Cards- Points can be awarded if you have existing credit cards. Always a major credit
card such as a VISA, Master Card, American Express, Diner's Club, or Discover card are better
and give more points than smaller department store cards. Oil company cards don't often
generate much excitement.
Current Bank Loan- A current bank loan will give you positive points.
Finance Company Loans- Having a loan with a finance company can only hurt you. The more
you have had, the more negative points you will accumulate.
Credit Report- Negative items on your credit report will generate negative points against your
application. The more negative items, the more your score will be reduced.
Inquiries- You will receive negative points for any inquiries on your credit report that did not
result in a new account being added to it.
You can get that new loan you desire. There are many lenders who would like to grant
you anew loan. However, you will have to do your homework in preparation for the application
process. Knowing where you stand financially, you can meet any questions that might arise.
Carefully prepare your application and be ready to "sell" yourself as a trustworthy credit risk.
You can do it. The information that we have presented should help you to prepare your
application so that it will appear in the most favorable light possible. Get ready. Make your
application. And watch your future grow.
