I hope that all you USA people know you can get your credit score free once a year and if you only get one agency at a time you can get a free score three times a year. I keep getting ads saying someone will do this for me of course this always leads into to a small fee. It's a scam, just go on the internet and you can get it free. I do my banking online and the bank gives me my score once a month just as a service.

This has really opened my eyes a few times. I'm not sure I would have found out about identity theft if I didn't get my statements. I was also supposed to be delinquent on an account I didn't have, and I was able to straighten that out. It's a wonderful service!
