Credit Report

Credit reports are key to helping you confidently protect and manage your identity. You can rest assured - reviewing your report does not negatively impact your standing or score.

Financial institutions, employers and insurers use credit reports to gain insight into your financial profile. Because they provide a record of your present and past credit use, credit reports may determine whether or not you will be offered credit, and on what terms. Inaccurate or fraudulent account information on credit reports can result in denial of credit, higher loan and insurance rates, and even rejection for employment. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has prepared A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you may also find additional information on their website www.FTC.gov/credit.

Understanding your credit score and the factors that impact it will prepare you to make the best possible decisions for your financial future. Want help reading your report? We've prepared a quick educational guide for you: How to Read, Use and Act on Your Credit Report. If you find inaccurate information on your report, you may contact one of our Credit Specialists to help dispute this information directly with the credit reporting agencies.

CHECKING ACCOUNT REPORT

Checking account fraud is a growing crime. To protect your identity and financial assets, it's a good idea to review your checking report every year.

Your checking account report contains checking and deposit account information, including general account history, check fraud incidents, non-sufficient funds activity, and other reported activity or information related to your use of checking and deposit accounts.

Checking account reports are compiled and maintained by Chex Systems, Inc. To receive your checking account report from Chex Systems.

 

What information is included in the report?

The purpose of checking account reports is to let financial institutions know whether or not they should let a person open a new account. The information they examine includes:

  • Repeated account overdrafts
  • Uncollected fees
  • Suspected fraud
  • Suspected abuse of debit card, ATM card or other tools
  • Falsified information on the application

 

What to do about a negative listing

If you find inaccurate information on your checking account report, you can dispute this with Chex Systems. If they determine the information is incorrect, it may be expunged from the record.

To dispute a negative listing, submit your dispute in writing to:

Chex Systems, Inc.
7805 Hudson Road, Suite 100
Woodbury, MN 55125

You can also request that a personal statement of the dispute be added to your file.

What does it mean if my account has been flagged?

If your checking account report has been flagged by Chex Systems for unpaid fees, overdrawn accounts, suspected fraud, or any other reason, it is a strong indication of fraudulent activity and usually means your private information has been compromised. Visit our Identity Theft Restoration page to learn what you can do to reclaim your stolen identity. A report that contains this kind of negative information can also cause financial institutions to deny you check writing rights and other requests.
