Credit reports are kept by companies called credit bureaus.
If you've been denied credit and can't understand why, or if
you're just curious about what your credit history looks like,
you should obtain a copy of your credit report.
If you have been denied credit within the last 60 days based
on information on that report, you are entitled to a free copy
of your report. Otherwise, you may have to pay a nominal fee
to obtain your report ($3.00 to $8.00 depending on the State
you live in and what company you order your report from)... but
it's worth it. Often there are errors in the data.
