What is a credit report for?

A credit report is an analytical instrument that gives just a portion of the picture of your current financial status. I refer to it as “partial” since it does not include some information, such as your earnings, your savings, any money you owe to a loved one, or specifics about the items you have purchased.

People that inquire about seeing your file are often looking to determine the level of danger involved in doing business with you. In other words, they want to find out whether or not you can be trusted, whether or not you are financially responsible, and whether or not you are the kind of person who keeps their obligations.
