Free Credit Reports Now Available in Nebraska
Starting Tuesday, March 1st, Nebraska residents will be able to get free access to their credit reports.
The free report is part of the government's efforts to help people fight identity theft. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act requires that consumers can get one free copy of their credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus each year. That way, consumers can check for any unusual activity that could be a sign of trouble. Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning asks that Nebraskans make good use of the free reports to help combat identity theft.
The free reports will be available online at www.annualcreditreport.com by calling 1-877-322-8228.
