The basic premise is that every consumer has the right to see the report in which they are most concerned with and it is the agency that gives the report to you. However, even the most conscientious consumers will notice a gap between their credit report and the one you have obtained. The reason is that not all reporting agencies give a consumer the same information and will report information differently from month to month.

The key to resolving this situation is to obtain a copy of your credit report from the credit reporting agencies. Once you have obtained this information, you can review it and find out the errors on your report.

Although you can buy a copy of the traveling directly from the bureau, it is actually more cost effective and convenient to get a tradeline online. When you are reviewing the tradelines you will notice that they are a great deal more detailed and up to date than the individual reports.
