My letter to the editor of Kiplinger's magazine was published in the September 2009 issue.
This letter was in regards to credit scores and the closing of credit card accounts. I had several credit cards closed by the company and was expected a drop in my credit score. My credit score actually went up.
As it turns out, inactive cards don't hurt your score. Hmm.. Sounds like something fishy with FICO!
You can pick up your own copy of Kiplinger's to keep as a souvenir.
