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.

I started using computers in 1978 on the Apple II and was first online (using my “high-speed” 1200 baud modem) in 1989. I’ve managed web sites for several Fortune 500 companies and for internet start-ups. Working for one of those start-ups is what brought me into the world of credit. I was part of the the executive team that ran QSpace, the first company to offer credit reports over the internet.
