I have very poor credit, so poor in fact that I joke about someone trying to steel my credit would pay me to take it back. It’s that bad. I’ve learned recently that even people with bad credit need to watch out for people who will steel it. I applied for a credit card a few weeks ago and was approved. Why well because it was for people with bad credit. The worst part is that it starts with a balance on it, so you have to pay for money you really didn’t use.
There are many services out there you can use that will help prevent this lifelockbeing one. I suggest though that you check online and find the service that is right for you. Some will help prevent identity theft by monitoring your credit for you. Others just let you get unlimited credit reports so you can do it yourself. Either way you want to make sure you look at your credit. I’m worried now more then ever as the economy is so bad someone may thing my little bit of credit is worth steeling and I don’t know what I would do at that point. I’m already struggling to make ends meet.
