What is a credit report?
A credit report is a compilation of information that provides:
- Identifying information such as your name, social
security number, address, and date of birth;
- Details about your credit accounts;
- Public record information (bankruptcies, tax liens,
and monetary judgments); and
- Inquiries showing when your credit history was reviewed.
