Everyone American by law is entitled to a free annual credit report. I’ve often wondered how one goes about that. I don’t trust any website with the words “credit report” in the address, since the info is so sensitive. Today I was reading my latest PC World magazine and they address this. Here’s the scoop.
The official website is: www.annualcreditreport.com
It is indeed free with no strings attached. Don’t fall for commercials for “free credit report dot com”, which is only free after you sign up for a monthly credit monitoring service that is ridiculously priced. I wasn’t about to enter my information on just any website, and I’m thankful the magazine has cleared up. And now I’m telling you.
