Credit check requests.

I feel that a year is too long to wait in these days of computer fraud and other credit issues.

We should be able to RE-check our credit more often, perhaps every 6 months if not 3-4 months a year.

That would help prevent a lot of ID fraud and other credit issues.

Just a thought.

Thanks

When did you last request your three credit reports to insure their accuracy?  If it hasn't been within the past year, go to annualcreditreport.com and get copies of all three credit reports.  Look them over carefully and file disputes on all WRONG information with the credit bureau reporting it.  Do Not do this by phone because the operators are limited in what they can do.  Go online or do it by mail.

Make this checkup something you do every year to make sure all information on your reports is correct.
