KNOW YOUR CREDIT SCORE!
It is always empowering to know where you stand with regard to your finances. By checking your credit profile, you will easily be able to see if anyone has opened a fraudulent account in your name through identity theft, and take the necessary steps. You will also be able to determine the level of your creditworthiness.
All consumers, according to the National Credit Act, are eligible to a free credit report once every 12 months. Some of the credit bureaus that will allow you to check your credit profile and view your credit score for free annually are TransUnion, Experian, XDS and Compuscan.
