REVIEW YOUR CREDIT REPORT CAREFULLY, AND FREQUENTLY
Some common errors in credit reports are:
- Identity errors
- Errors made to your identity information (wrong name, phone number, address)
- Accounts belonging to another person with the same or a similar name as yours (this mixing of two consumers’ information in a single file is called a mixed file)
- Incorrect accounts resulting from identity theft
