Examining your Credit History

A credit report can look a little confusing if you have nver seen one, but it is really quite simple once you get used to it.  If you have trouble reading your report, ask for help at the credit reporting agency.  Someone will show you where the codes are located on the report.  Look for the infromation listed below on your credit report.

  • Your employment
  • The location of the credit reporting agency nearest your current address
  • A list of your accounts with reporting creditors containing the following details

               1. Name of account

               2. Comment about the account, such as CURR ACCT for current account or DELINQ 120, for an account

                   that has been delinquent for at least 120 days

               3. Status of the account, identifying it as positive, non-evaluated, or negative.

               4. Date the account was opened

               5. Scheduled monthly payment amount

               6. Date last payment was made

               7. Type and terms of the account

               8. Payment history during the past 12 months

               9. The original loan amount (ORIGL), credit limit (LIMIT), historical high balance (HIBAL), or original

Please don't be mean!  There is a huge possibility that David Rascoe does not know this is being published for the group.  Many people are joining and overlooking the fact that it is not just a personal blog. 

Be nice and let him know, we may have another alpha voice here to join the group.
