Hey you are correct I don't know you. I just know the times that we are living in. I also know hiring protocol from a higher up prospective. Using
someone's credit score to judge character and responsibility has been going on for quite a long time and it just part of the process for most
positions of gainful employment.
I understand life is not a straight road...believe me I know that. All I was not understanding is how can you blame employers for wanting to know
about one's financial well-being when they are attempting to fill a position which requires honesty and high responsibilities?

*FB is now the J. Edger Hoover of the 21st century with sensitive data files on over 800+ million(almost 1/7th of the world's population)....that is a
lot of power for one website to wield...if the Feds want my info they will need to come knocking on my door with guns and Sodium Thiopental to get
