It’s no secret that people tend to exaggerate their credit score.
But it’s even more important to know the difference between what you truly owe and what you think you owe.
“It’s easy to make up debt when you’ve never borrowed anything,” says Dan Hargrove, director of credit card at Experian.
“But what you owe on your credit card is often not the amount you actually owe.”
So how do you know if you really owe anything?
Here are six simple steps to help you identify the difference.
Get an accurate credit score 2.
Track your debt 3.
Determine if you have outstanding credit card debts or if you’re a bad debt collector 4.
Get a free credit report to see how your score compares to other people with similar scores 5.
Monitor your credit scores to find out if you can afford to pay back your debt When you apply for a credit card, credit scores are compiled from three factors: your credit history, the credit scores of other people who apply, and your credit score in the past.
In addition to the credit report, your bank also collects and compiles your other credit report.
The information from each report is compared to your credit utilization and your available credit.
When you have the information on file, you can compare your credit reports to each other.
The most important thing is that you don’t take out a credit line to make this comparison.
Credit reports are not a free service.
You need to pay for them.
They’re a part of your payment history and your payment process.
To get your credit reported, you’ll need to: Get an Experian credit report from a trusted third-party source.
Get your credit statement from Experian or another third-parties.
Make sure you have a good credit history.
