The next best thing to a good name is good credit. Good credit is the deal breaker when it comes to making big ticket purchases because our economy is run on the power of credit. Good credit is defined by your three-digit-credit score, and it is key to your financial well-being.
This year from mid May through July, Equifax an American credit information company reported that its system had been hacked. The personal information, names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some cases driver’s licenses, of more than 2.5 million consumers had been compromised or stolen. The risk of credit fraud and identity theft is a real possibility now for many Americans, and on the minds of all of these people is what do we do now.
