Since the fall of 2005, consumers nationwide have been eligible tosource: NYTimes.com
obtain a free copy of their credit report every year from each of the three main
credit reporting agencies -- Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. There's a Web site, www.annualcreditreport.com, but we recommend that people call the toll-free number, 877 322-8228. That's because there are about 50 impostor Web sites out there -- most of them selling subscription credit services -- so it's important that people who want to use the Web site type the name correctly.
We suggest that people order a different one every four months. That way
you're checking your credit year-round. If there are mistakes or inaccuracies,
notify the credit bureaus right away. They could be depressing your credit
score, which means you may be paying more to borrow than you should. Also look for suspicious activity. It could be an early sign of identity theft.'
