Get A Copy Of Your Credit Report TODAY!
By law you have the right to get a free copy of your credit report from all three credit bureaus once a year.Annual Credit Report is the only site that has been authorized by the government to offer this service.
All you have to do is fill out the needed information and request the reports you want. You can also request your credit reports by 877-322-8228.
Once you get your reports look over them very carefully for any errors. You want to look for things such as misspellings on your name, credit accounts you don’t recognize or incorrect addresses. If you notice any errors contact each bureau and have them addressed immediately.
Place A Credit Freeze On Your Accounts
If you think you have been affected freeze all of your accounts immediately. A credit freeze will make it extremely difficult for anyone to use your credit. With a credit freeze lenders will be unable to see any of your information which is usually a red flag that something isn’t right.
