Credit Scores | Federal Trade Commission

This video shows what happens when one person gets a free credit report from AnnualCreditReport.com and someone else gets a “free” credit score from a TV ad.

The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American. It is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers’ interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.

How to Get Your Free Credit Report

Hi everyone. In this video, I show you how to get your free credit report. This is the report authorized by the U.S. Government. I show you how to get it by going to the U.S. Government website and by following the authorized credit report website URL.

A few important things to note:
You can go directly to the free credit report website by going to annualcreditreport.com

Have your paperwork ready if you’ve forgotten some of your credit history (such as which company you received a loan from)

You can save a copy of your credit report by either printing it or saving it on your computer or external drive (recommended)

When you are finished viewing/saving your credit report from your selected credit reporting companies, close your internet browser for security reasons
