If so where can I find it? I am wanting to clean things up and find out what I have out there and I keep seeing all these ads for FREE reports but yet they still ask me for my Credit card number, doesn't make a hole lot of sense to me.

The only time I know u get a free credit report is when u r denied credit or employment. You have 60 days to request your report.

Hi ikrayzee. Great name! Your question is one that should be posted on our Debt Q&A board. This board is for dealing with emotional issues while repaying debt.

Depending on what state you're in, you may be entitled to one (or two) free credit reports per bureau per year. As mymartes explained, you can also get a copy of the report used to gather information that resulted in your being denied credit or a job. Otherwise, you can get a free copy of your Trans Union report at http://www.worthknowing.com .
