There are thousands of scam sites trying to trick you into paying for your credit report but getting your truly free report takes less than five minutes.
Avoid the scams and get your credit report with the only free government site.
Why You Need to Check Your Credit Report Every Year
Checking your credit report regularly isn’t just important to protect your money but that report is the biggest factor in your credit score and being able to get the money you need when you need it.
