Reporting agencies are always watching

-A A +A

By Jason Alderman

By now, you’ve probably heard about the Big Three credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, which monitor your financial history and issue credit reports and credit scores to potential lenders.
But did you know that there are dozens of other specialty consumer reporting agencies that track your history for activities that may not appear on your regular credit reports – things like bounced checks, late utility payments, insurance claims and prescription orders?
Most people never hear about these companies until they’re suddenly turned down for an apartment, checking account, insurance policy or even a job or promotion. But you need to know that potential landlords, banks, insurance companies and employers are very likely ordering specialty reports to help them assess the risk of doing business with you.
