Those who have managed credit poorly in the past. "Their behavior was so poor that no one will lend them credit," says Watts.

"It tends to be lower -- and some middle -- income," says Nick Jacobs, spokesman for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, an umbrella group of local nonprofit credit counseling services. "There are some middle-income people who just haven't built up enough of a file yet."
