I’m a visiting J1 exchange professor at the University of Hawaii, and I’m being asked by the Hawaiian Electric company to pay a pretty hefty deposit for service to the house I’m renting. They have told me that Experian is the company they use for credit ratings and that the deposit is based on a rating provided by you. I have a very good credit rating in my home country. Could this rating not be used by your company?
Why was I turned down when I asked to remove my husband’s name from our electric bill and place it in my name instead? The electric company told me to contact Experian to see why there was a “hold.”
