Want to keep close tabs on your credit?
Consider a credit monitoring service. With credit monitoring, you’ll receive updates alerting you of any changes in your credit file.
Some services monitor your credit reports from each of the three major credit reporting agencies — Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. Others only monitor your credit reports from one or two of the credit reporting agencies.
Prices vary as do the additional services offered. Some credit monitoring services will monitor your Social Security number as well, in case you are worried that this number has been compromised in some way.
When are credit monitoring services important? There are instances when you’ll want to keep an extra close watch on your credit. http://www.stopidentityfraud.org/credit-monitoring-services/
