american consumer credit counseling

Credit bureaus usually are listed in the yellow pages of your telephone
book under "credit reporting agencies." Three large national credit
bureaus supply most credit reports: Equifax, Experian and Trans
Union. You may want to contact each of them for a copy of your
report.

You're entitled to one free report a year if you can prove that (1)
you're unemployed and plan to look for a job with 60 days, (2) you're
on welfare, or (3) your report is inaccurate because of fraud.
Otherwise, a credit bureau may charge you up to $9.00 for a copy of
your report.

Do-It-Yourself Check-Up
Even if you don't have a poor credit history, it's a good idea to
conduct your own credit check-up, especially if you're planning a
major purchase, such as a home or car. Checking in advance on the
accuracy of the information in your credit report could speed the
credit-granting process.
