the 60 minute report noted that the credit reporting agencies give business' requesting your report a different version then the one we consumers get to check. If that's the case then what good is it to check your report. We need to see what the business' are getting.

lechevalier5---You're absolutely right! If we are not getting the same report, how could a consumer know what is the criteria for approving loans, etc. I've never had any problem with my credit report but now I question what is given to the businesses! These credit reporting agencies need to be investigated more and find out why incorrect data on the reports are not resolved.
