There are three credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You will sometimes read about a fourth CRA, Innovis Data Solutions (www.innovis.com). But for now at least, it is not a major player, and this guide focuses solely on the "big three."

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
