Credit Scores & Reports

Credit reports and scores are useful tools for consumers and lenders. However, they are only good if the information is accurate and easily accessible. This issue of The Credit Line examines the role of the national credit reporting agencies, how information is collected and what consumers should do if they find errors on their credit reports. It also features new polling data showing what consumers know about their credit histories.
