Here's a simple process you can follow:

1. Review your credit reports.

The credit bureaus -- TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian -- are required to give you a free copy of your report once a year. All you have to do is ask. (Click the links to request a copy.)

Another way to see your credit reports is to use a free service like Credit Karma. (I'm not endorsing Credit Karma. I like it and think it's handy, but I'm sure other free services are just as useful.)

Once you've signed up, you can see your credit scores and view the information contained on the reports. Generally speaking, the entries on the different reports will be the same, but not always. For a variety of reasons credit reports are rarely identical.
