Credit, my credit, your credit, we've all got a credit report and a credit score, but just like height or weight, we're all different.  But different than tape measures and scales, it's a computer rating.  What's yours?  Don't fall prey to that "free cre$dit report" gimmick.  They're going to take your credit card, sign you up for a repeating charge and then make you have to take action (translate: fight with them) to get it undone.   GO TO THE SOURCE.  This company is one of the actual credit reporting services, AND they'll sell you the info for all 3 major ones! 9 Bucks for 1 report or 30 bucks for all 3.  Well worth it to check your credit and NO continuing biling!  OK I've got my eyes covered TAKE ME
