A poor credit score implies a high credit risk rating. It indicates that a consumer cannot handle new credit as they might be overwhelmed by current debt that they have. In this respect, a poor credit score would mean that lenders are highly unlikely to extend new credit to you.
A consumer with a high credit risk rating implies that lenders are likely to charge that consumer a higher interest rate for new credit.
