A Good Score Is Something to Cheer About

As Football Season Kicks Off, NationalCreditReport.com, a Credit Monitoring Services Company, Reminds Consumers to Focus Not Only on the Scores of the Ballgames, but a Good Credit Score as Well

DELRAY BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - August 31, 2010) - NationalCreditReport.com, a leader in credit report, credit score and credit monitoring services, advises consumers that a good credit score doesn't have to be just a fantasy this football season.

"Now is as good a time as any to come up with a game plan to achieve a good credit score," said Samuel S. Ambrose, Vice President of Marketing and Operations for NationalCreditReport.com. "Don't get caught up focusing only on the scores of your favorite team, continue to check your credit report regularly so you don't have to scramble to fix your credit score in overtime or be sacked by unauthorized accounts being opened in your name."

NationalCreditReport's good credit score playbook:

  • The best defense is a good offense -- Proactively check your credit report at least quarterly to seek out any inaccuracies in the data. Recognizing a fraudulent account opened in your name can intercept an identity thief for example. Credit monitoring services can even check your credit report for you and alert you to any new activity.
  • Tackle inaccurate information -- If you find inaccurate information when you check your credit report, you have the right to blow the whistle and call this to the attention of Experian™, Equifax™ and TransUnion™, the three major credit reporting agencies. Once you provide documentation to them backing your claim, you can hand off the resolution process to them.
  • Make a game plan for paying off outstanding debt -- Making late payments is possibly the easiest way to fumble a good credit score. If you have outstanding debt, speak to your creditors and come up with a plan to pay it off.
  • Don't retire your oldest player in favor of a rookie. Keep your longest standing cards open and use them periodically. Having a positive, long-standing history is viewed as a winning record in the eyes of potential lenders.

At the company's website, www.nationalcreditreport.com, consumers can sign-up for a free credit score, and a seven-day trial of its Triple Safeguard Credit Monitoring™ service.
