What are Credit Reports and Credit Scores ?

A Credit Report is a factual record of your credit payment history.

A Credit Score is a rating number based on your credit history.

Both are provided to companies and individuals by credit bureaus for purposes permitted by law, usually to grant you credit, for insurance purposes or for employment. The main purpose of a credit report and score is to help a credit grantor decide whether to grant you credit based upon your credit payment history, issue insurance or to be hired.
