Hi and Welcome Tmoney

Think of CK as a free, weekly, summary report that is meant to help you stay on top of new information being reported on your credit reports faster than any other free credit sites (and more detailed than most as well).  The CK reports mostly only show the information that affects your credit scores directly.  However, your full credit reports with the details that don’t affect your score are only available from the credit bureaus for free once a year. 

Since CK is mostly only telling you the information that affects your scores, and you have to make formal disputes with the credit bureaus anyways, you will have to use the full reports from the credit bureaus to file a dispute with them.  CKs summaries will give you the ability to stay informed of any changes weekly and for free.  So you know when to use your once a year free report from the credit bureaus by reviewing the account information that counts in your score until you see something not right.

Hi Tmoney17,

Your credit report typically does not include account numbers, as a safety precaution. If you have any paperwork associated with the account in question, the account number is usually listed there. Otherwise, you can call the creditor directly for more information.
