Problems With Credit Cards And Credit Reporting

Nick Makaryk
Apr 8, 2008
Credits cards today are found to be very helpful and are in demand. Millions of people today hold at least one credit card and many have two plus. The cards can be obtained easily for people with good or bad credit. People with credit cards should always be aware of the impact, whether it is good or bad, on one's credit report.

A Credit report is not just important to creditors, it also should be equally important to you. Creditors such as bankers and lenders determine if you are credit worthy and use these credit reports for loans and credit cards.

The most important element that will get you approved is your credit report. The top reason why so many people have bad credit report is their use of credit cards which people should look at carefully.

For the most part, people are responsible with their use of credit cards and do not allow them to get out of control. This allows them to show credit worthiness to creditors and lenders, which allows them to gain more credit and more loans. However, too many accounts open at once could damage your credit without you even knowing it. In fact, if you have too many accounts open at the same time, creditors will be less likely to extend you more credit, with fear that you are over extending yourself and will run into a bad situation when it comes to payment time.

Two or more credit cards sometimes can hurt someone's credit instead of helping them. Too many cards can show to a lender that there could be problems facing your credit. The job of the lender is to try to oversee any type of risk, where the worst can occur when reviewing credit card and loan applications. The more you understand about your credit report and the the effect it has on your life the better off you will be.

Your credit report contains all the information that will make or break you. It is the deciding factor that will influence the creditors for any type of credit, loans, credit cards, jobs, and even a place to live. Be careful of credit cards and always remember what impact it might have on your credit report. Never make late payments, don't miss payments, and try to keep very low balances.

One can damage their credit report just by one missed or late payment. The lenders will take note of this and it will appear on your credit report. Don't make this habit as it will hurt your credit rating and make a negative impact.

You should use credit cards carefully, and avoid being over extended. Do not carry more than one or two at a time and be keen on how you use them. Making timely payments and you will see a healthy credit report.
