FBI Article on Building a Digital Defense with Credit Reports

Since much of how I work and get rewarded centers around the use of credit cards, it would be remiss if I did not share this tidbit on securing your identity. The long and the short of the article can be summed up to:

“Why is it important to make sure each of these reports is accurate? This may be your first indicator that someone is committing fraud in your name. In addition, these credit agencies sell this information to creditors, employers, insurance companies, and other businesses. The information in this record may make a difference in whether you get a mortgage, new car loan, new credit card, get a job or pass a rental screening.”
