This is financial adviser, Patrick Munro talking about how to check someone's credit report. The only way, the only legal way that an individual can check someone's credit report is if they're a business and someone is coming to you as a client. You as a valid business will have a relationship with a credit reporting bureau. And that credit reporting bureau, because you have paid them a fee, monthly, annually or otherwise, will allow you to look in to someone's credit. You must have that person's social security number, their address, and some identifiers that make them a unique individual. And then when you provide that information to your membership at the various reporting agencies of which there are three, TransUnion, Experian and Equifax, they will report back to on the status of that individual, by way of a score. It's a three digit number called a credit score. This is Patrick Munroe on the methodology used to check out someone's credit.
