Empower yourself with free credit report

Cape Town - Very few people know that they have the right to a full, free credit report from each of the credit bureaus in South Africa once every year.

The importance of viewing your credit report should not be underestimated.

You could be unaware of negative information on your profile which could be hampering your chances of getting credit, but the real danger of identity theft can also be picked up via your credit report, for example  unpaid accounts in your name which you are not aware of.

The biggest credit bureaus in SA are:

TransUnion – 0861 482 482
Compuscan – 0861 51 41 31
Experian – 0861 105 665
Consumer Profile Bureau - 010 590 9505
Credit Watch- 011 483 0086
XDS Credit Bureau - 011 645 9100
