From the November / December 2011 issue of The Quarter Roll

New report shows credit reports are loaded with inaccurate information!

Ray Martin, a personal financial consultant, speaking on The Early Show quoted these facts about errors found on credit reports.

54% contained inaccurate personal information such as misspelled names, wrong Social Security numbers, inaccurate birth dates, inaccurate information about a spouse and out of date address. For example, one credit report listed a man's business partner as his spouse.

30% listed "closed" accounts as "open." For example, listing a student loan that was paid off years ago as still outstanding. Another report listed several credit cards, a mortgage and an auto loan all as open.

22% of reports had the same mortgage or loan listed twice. This mistake often occurs when loans are serviced or sold.

8% of reports simply didn't list major credit, loan, mortgage or other accounts that could be used to demonstrate the creditworthiness of a consumer.

After seeing the rate of these errors you want to make sure you are taking steps to get your free credit report and reviewing it for errors!
