Plano, TX (PRWEB) April 01, 2013

Build My Scores is now making an effort to warn consumers about growing concerns regarding unauthorized access to credit reports. In a March 12 Reuters article, Equifax Inc said they were going to launch an internal investigation because they found that four consumer credit reports had been fraudulently accessed. Consumers need to be aware of the consequences when their credit reports are accessed without their permission.

The Reuters article went on to reveal that the four credit reports accessed were those of four celebrities and somehow hackers had gotten personal information with which they were able to bypass the authentication steps on the http://www.annualcreditreport.com website. If celebrities, who are generally much more careful about their privacy, can be subject to having their credit reports accessed fraudulently, how much easier can it be for people who are not celebrities? This is why Build My Scores is stressing the importance of consumers routinely checking up on their credit reports.

Consumers should consistently check their credit reports for inquiries and who made those inquiries. If they notice something from a company they don’t recognize, they should contact that company immediately about why they appear on the credit report. If the inquiry is, in fact, fraudulent, the consumer should take legal action.
