WASHINGTON, D.C. – We all make the occasional mistake, but according to the Federal Trade Commission, one out of five consumers have an error on one of their major credit reports. That seems like more than just an occasional mistake!

There’s really only one way to prevent the issue, look over and check your report.

Despite advancing technology, there aren’t any iPhone apps that will check it for you. Just check and re-check the report to make sure it’s all good, or else you won’t be getting that new credit card any time soon!
