I was suprised by this - in the past (about 2 years ago) I had updated my
address with the three main CRAs and I didn't get this. But I moved about 2
months ago - had problems getting a check card 'cause the (new) address I
wrote down didn't synch with the CRs address that they had on me.
So I sent in a copy of my new DL and SS card to the three CRAs and EACH
one sent me a new credit report!
Now you *should* always report your new address to the CRAs, but now
there is an additional bonus - you get a free CR ;-)
Good mornin' Jennifer - Appreciate your sharing your input - You've made me aware of yet another benefit of being a charter member of The Fool. Um, have you noticed that only the intelligent, well informed are posting since the chaff was reduced? Wunerful, wunerful.
Happy Holidays, Lenniebabe
