I pulled all 3 of my own this month and I can honestly tell you they are different. They are about 70% the same, but some creditors only report to one or two of the agencies.

Also it is unbelievable how much wrong info is out there. My Equifax report had about 20 outstanding creditors on the report. 10 of them were creditors of my father (who has the same name as me, I am a Jr.) and 2 of them were paid in full since last year. My father’s home mortgage showed up on all 3 credit reports and I never signed the mortgage and our SSN’s are totally different.

You can order from all 3 agencies via the internet. They are $8 each.

Is it necessary to get credit reports from all three of the major credit agencies or are they all the same?
