We’ve all heard the stories from someone we know (though we may or may not like that person) about having been a victim of some form of identity theft. Identity theft can drastically affect your credit rating, and your credit rating affects almost everything in your financial world. Whether you’re looking to apply for a credit card, take out or renew a mortgage, get a car loan, or want to borrow a million dollars from that loan shark down the street, your credit rating will greatly impact the interest rate which you might receive for such loans. There are two major players in the credit rating world of Canada – those being Equifax and TransUnion. You can, and we suggest you do, go to both these websites and sign-up for their free service to check your credit scores.
Directly from their website, Equifax states: “We are a global data, analytics, and technology company. We believe knowledge drives progress. Our unique data assets, technology and analytics transform knowledge into insights to power decisions that move people forward.”
Here’s a wonderful and short read [they claim it’s 2 minutes but I think it’s way more like 3 minutes :)] from Equifax about what impacts your credit score. https://www.consumer.equifax.ca/personal/education/credit-score/what-impacts-credit-score/
Directly from their website, TransUnion states:
“Our mission is to help people everywhere access the opportunities that lead to a higher quality of life. By helping organizations optimize their risk-based decisions and enabling consumers to understand and manage their personal information, we empower both to take their destinies into their own hands.”
Here’s a true 2 minute read from TransUnion about 5 factors that affect your credit score. https://www.transunion.ca/what-affect-credit-score?
