Find Out Your Credit Score
USAToday – March 28, 2002
Don’t let your credit score strike you out
For years the credit industry tried to keep you from knowing your own credit score. All that ended, when QSpace and eLoan started providing them directly to consumers in late 2000.
Knowing your credit score is important because lenders use it to determine whether or not you qualify for a loan, or what kind of interest rate you’re going to get. It’s also good to see your credit score along with a report to look for signs of identity fraud.
