Your Credit Score will Contain Your Personal Identifying Information

- Court records, These include bankruptcies, judgments and any liens that you may have.
- Credit Inquiries, Each time you apply for credit an “inquiry” appears on at least one of your credit bureau files.
Here are a few ways that you can improve your credit score
Pay all your bills on time every month
Avoid using the full credit amount available
Try to keep your credit card balances below 30% of your total credit limit.
Keep your credit card accounts open
Even if you’re no longer using a credit card, keeping it open can show a long credit history, which may help your score.
Correct any errors you find on your credit report
Credit reporting agencies record lots of transactions every day. So it’s not surprising that credit reporting errors can happen. When you get your credit report, review it carefully. If you see any errors, complete the dispute form provided by the credit reporting agency. The agency must investigate and respond to you within 30 days.
