Know Your Credit Score

A sad but true fact of life is that more and more things depend on what your credit score is. From the loan rate you get to whether you get a job or not can depend on this number. Experian, TransUnion and Equifax are the three credit reporting agencies. By law you are now allowed to access your credit report(they charge for you to access your score) from Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. You can go to www.annualcreditreport.com during a calendar year and get each of the reports. So because you can get all three, stagger months between accessing each and get a different company's report each of the three times.

Once you get the report you need to examine it carefully to confirm there are no mistakes on it (mistakes are not unusual). Then you will have to pay to access your score. The scoring system has changed recently, but not all are accepting those changes. Click here to get an idea of what your score means.

    I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
    the indexes easily.

    Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
