Most people still don't understand a thing about their credit score, and it's costing them big time

Finance
Credit scores greatly impact a consumer's financial moves — and how much they'll pay along the way — yet many don't even know how the rating works. Around 40 percent believe, incorrectly, that age and marital status play a role in their three-digit score, according to the Consumer Federation of America's credit card survey, which included interviews with some 1,000 people from May 31 to June 3 of this year. Only around 20 percent of people fully realize how a low credit score can bring on heftier interest-rate charges. Specifically, that borrowers with a low score can pay about $ 5,000 more on a $ 20,000, 60-mont...

And weeks later, Sky News has found the problems are far from over - with fraudsters exploiting the confusion to access customers' money.Ewan Monaghan, a teacher from St Albans, says he and his wife were among those locked out four weeks ago, for a few days - but then all appeared resolved.

Andrew Luck is still not throwing but first-year Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich is not concerned.

The overall No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Luck admitted he "pushed a little too hard" in his attempt to return to action after having surgery to repair a torn labrum on Jan. 15, 2017. Recurring soreness in Luck's shoulder prompted the Colts to finally shut him down two weeks after he returned to practice in early...
