Getting My Free Credit Report

Inspired by other posts I pursued my own credit report recently.  I completed the requisite form and mailed my information to Equifax:

• Name and current address
• Previous address(es) within the last 5 years
• DOB
• Name and last 4 digits of major credit card
• Signature and date
• Two pieces of personal identification (refer to Equifax form for details)

I’m now waiting to see what the report will say. Hopefully all good stuff but even if it doesn’t, I’d like to understand what tampering has been done to affect my credit rating/history. I will keep you posted on the outcome. 

To read more about obtaining credit reports check out information at Equifax or TransUnion.
