Card accounts in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, California, Illinois, Michigan, Florida (Miami area), and Washington, D.C. have predominated the cases so far. 2. Less than two years of credit history on file, and in any case, no credit history past 1989. 3. Credit score based only on card histories. No mortgages or car loans. 4.
