Every once in a while I stumble on an article that is too good not to share with all of you who read this blog. So today when I read this over at The Consumerist, I thought I would pass this on. Basically what The Consumerist has done is to list Web sites that provide information about us that others know about us. This is information that we need to know, especially if there are errors about our past history that need to be corrected. Some of those that are listed can be completed online, while others you need to mail in with a copy of your ID and also a utility bill [each site may be different] by which to identify yourself.
Here is what The Consumerist has posted:
Health History Reports
Medical Information Bureau (MIB) (866) 692-6901
Social Security Statement
Social Security Administration
Purchase Returns History Reports
Gaming Patron’s Credit History and Transaction Data
Utilities & Telecommunications Reports
National Consumer Telecom and Utilities Exchange, Inc (NCTUE) Call 1-888-201-5643 for reports
I am currently checking online and mailing in requests for information on some of the history reports I am interested in.
Hope this helps.
