if you have been in prison for 10 years,  most or all of your accounts have been closed and fallen off your Credit Report. 

So there could be no history and you are starting from scratch.

Please take the time to read the articles on this site to gain knowledge about credit and how to build a good credit score. It's excellent information I wish I had years ago but am glad I have now.  You will have to start rebuilding credit with a secured card, and build from there and it won't take very long.  The goal should be to keep debts paid in full every month, or make those large item payments on time every time.
