Yahoo Reports High Risk FICO Scores on the Rise

A Yahoo report of July 12, 2010 indicates that a growing number of US consumers have the ranks of high risk borrowers (FICO score of 599 or less). Following increasing foreclosures and delinquent debts due to the high unemployment and underemployment rates of the down economy, this segment of credit scores has grown from the typical 15% of consumers to over 25% as of April 2010.
