Time to check your credit report!

With Christmas and New Years now behind us, it is imperative that you thoroughly review your credit card and bank statements. I know we tell you this throughout the year, but it is even more important now. Think of all the shopping you did over the past 2 or 3 months. We need to ensure your accounts & your identity have not been compromised. Please review the following financial statements, along with your credit report:

  1. Your bank account statements

  2. Your billing statements

  3. Your Credit card statements

If you notice anything you are unsure of, report it immediately!
