Here’s how it works: Your personal credit rating, largely, determines what loans you will qualify for and the interest you’ll pay. Credit ratings are not based on mathematical formulas. Instead, credit rating agencies use their judgment and experience in determining likelihood of default.

AnnualCreditReport.com is the official site to help consumers to obtain their free credit report.Beware of other offers, and remember that getting a free credit report does not include your credit score. You probably will have to pay to get that – and each agency produces its own report for a few bucks apiece.

• Identity Theft -- You need to call the police if someone has gotten hold of your credit-card number, or has made you the victim of any sort of identity theft. Beyond that, the Federal Trade Commission has a program called
Consumer Sentinel for channeling reports into a national database of telemarketing and identity-theft complaints. Here’s a guide to protect and report identity theft.
