Hi, My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today. The best way to check your credit report is through www.annualcreditreport.com. This website is 100% free and lets a person check their credit report for all issues with their credit. You can also get a free credit report from www.creditkarma.com if you've gotten your free reports from the government within the past 12 months. Not all legal issues are going to appear on a credit reporting website. In fact, most of them won't until someone gets a judgment or lien against you. The purpose of a credit report is to show a person's financial history, not full legal history. If you have issues related to checks that were written and not paid, you're more likely to find a record of it with ChexSystems.https://www.consumerdebit.com/consumerinfo/us/es/chexsystems/report/index.htm This site has detailed information on requesting a history of your own FBI record, which is a better place to look for legal issues with the government.http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks You can also request a copy of your Idaho criminal history through the state.http://isp.idaho.gov/BCI/ If you have any questions or concerns about my response, please reply WITHOUT RATING. It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so I am paid for the time I spend answering questions. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. There is no charge for follow-up questions. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
