How Do I Get My Credit Report?
Consumers can get a copy of their report online. The easiest way to do so is to request a free credit report from one of the three major bureaus. You get a free report from each every year, so if you do only one bureau at a time, you can request a report every four months. The website to request to report is at www.annualcreditreport.com.
