What you don't know about your credit can hurt you

Your credit score comes from several pieces of information about you including whether you make payments on time and how much you spend.

Nowadays just about everyone, from landlords to lenders, judges you based on your credit score. In part because credit companies, like banks, have been so inundated during the past few years, far too many of us  have mistakes buried deep within our credit reports.

If you happen to be one of those unlucky folks, mistakes made by the credit company may be costing you hard earned money. For example, the difference between a 698 and a 700 credit score on a $150,000 mortgage could cost you $10,000.00 in extra interest.

You have the legal right to get your credit report for free at And, when you report a mistake, the credit companies are legally required to promptly fix it. Get in the habit of reviewing your credit once each year.
