Credco obtains credit information used to prepare Credit Reports from the three national credit repositories (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion, collectively, the “CRA Repositories”) and from Credco.  The Credit Reports Credco provides are intended to furnish you with information that you may not otherwise have readily available to you, but should not be relied upon for important personal and financial decisions.  You should consult your own professional adviser for specific advice tailored to your personal situation. 

You understand that by checking the “VIEW REPORT” box OR TAKING SUCH OTHER ACTION CONFIRMING YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES immediately following these Terms and Conditions, you are providing “written instructions” in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, as amended (“FCRA”), for Credco to obtain information from your personal credit profile from any consumer reporting agency.  You also authorize Credco to access your personal credit profile to verify your identity TO AVOID UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS IN YOUR NAME, and to provide YOU WITH CREDIT REPORTS, credit monitoring SERVICES, and scoring products.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IT MAY BE A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND/OR STATE LAW FOR YOU TO OBTAIN A CREDIT REPORT ON ANY PERSON OTHER THAN YOURSELF, AND THAT UNDER THE FCRA, ANY PERSON WHO KNOWINGLY AND WILLFULLY OBTAINS INFORMATION ON A CONSUMER FROM A CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCY UNDER FALSE PRETENSES SHALL BE FINED UNDER TITLE 18, UNITED STATES CODE, IMPRISONED FOR NOT MORE THAN 2 YEARS, OR BOTH.

FCRA DISCLOSURES

The Services at this Web Site are not related to the free FCRA disclosure that you are or may be entitled to.

The FCRA allows consumers to get one free comprehensive disclosure of all the information in their credit file from each of the CRA Repositories once every 12 months through a central source.  To request your free annual report under the FCRA, you must go to www.annualcreditreport.com, or you may contact the central source to request this free annual disclosure by calling toll free (877) 322-8228, or by using the mail request form available at the central source website.

Consumers residing in the states of Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Vermont may receive an additional free copy of their credit report once per year and residents of the state of Georgia may receive two (2) additional copies per year.  For Illinois residents, credit reporting agencies are required by law to give you a copy of your credit record upon request at no charge or for a nominal fee.

In addition, the FCRA allows you to obtain a copy of all of the information in your consumer credit file from consumer reporting agencies for a reasonable charge.   Full disclosure of information in your file at the three national credit repositories must be obtained directly from the CRA Repositories:

Experian:      www.experian.com
Equifax:        www.equifax.com
TransUnion: www.transunion.com

Full disclosure of information in your file maintained by Credco must be obtained directly from Credco at www.credco.com.

The FCRA also states that individuals are entitled to receive a disclosure directly from the consumer reporting agency free of charge under the following circumstances:

  • You certify in writing that you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment in the 60 day period beginning on the day you make the certification;
  • You are a recipient of public welfare assistance
  • You have reason to believe that your file at the consumer reporting agency contains inaccurate information due to fraud
  • You have been denied credit, insurance, or employment in the past 60 days as a result of your Credit Report.

The FCRA also permits consumers to dispute inaccurate information in their Credit Report without charge.  Accurate information cannot be changed.  You do not have to purchase your Credit Report or other information from Credco to dispute inaccurate or incomplete information in your credit file maintained by the CRA Repositories or Credco.

Fraud alerts are available to any eligible consumer—free of charge—from a nationwide consumer reporting agency (like Experian, Equifax, TransUnion).

The Credit Report you are requesting from Credco is not intended to constitute the disclosure of Experian, Equifax, TransUnion, or Credco information required by the FCRA or similar state laws.
