Reading and Understanding Credit Reports? - Posted by Carey_PA

I believe you can call the credit bureau or screening service, explain you’re a newbie at this, and someone can explain it to you. We pull credit reports on all of tenants on and off for 20 years, and we occasionally run into something new which we need to call on. They usually explain it.

We called one time, and they thought we were a newbie, and they explained it to us in detail. Thats how we know they do it.

And I’m a guy who started my carrer 30 years ago out of college in consumer credit reading credit reports.

If you get the run-around, email me offline with specific questions "SChinFChin@aol.com" However, your service can better explain the particulars of a given report confidentially.

I just printed out my first credit report today and well I don’t understand what most of it means. I was wondering if anybody had a printout or something as far as “how to read and understand a credit report?”

Thanks,

CAREY
