Credit reports show fraudulent activity as well as errors. Your credit report is one of the most important documents you will ever use.
Most people never check their credit reports so thieves can be very successful. Learn how to read your credit report and make sure there are no mistakes.
Obtain credit reports from all three agencies—Eqifax, Experian and Transunion at least once a year. Remember, you can order one free from each company every twelve months. If you have children, check theirs also for fraudulent activity.
