\

Credit History

This information makes up the bulk of the personal credit report and includes your current and former accounts with credit card companies, banks, retailers, mortgage lenders, and any other past and present credit information. It describes in great detail when your accounts were opened, the credit limit or size of the loan(s), current balances, the types of credit issued, monthly payments, and any late payments or accounts that were delinquent.

Public Records

This credit report information includes any bankruptcies, court judgments, and/or liens against your name for unpaid taxes or other unpaid loans that went to collections.
\

Credit Report Inquiries

When an agency of any kind requests your credit report information, this inquiry is noted and becomes part of your credit report. Notes will be made any time you apply for any type of loan or credit card; take out a line of credit with a retailer; or reply to unsolicited inquiries, such as pre-approved credit card solicitations.
\

Disputed Accounts

Any disputes you may have filed. Any time you dispute any type of claim, it’s noted on your credit report. If you see any inaccuracies and wish to dispute them to preserve your credit rating, your attempts are noted as part of your credit report information.
