At some point in the next two days I anyone living in the US to head over to this site:
This site allows access to your free, congress mandated, anual credit report. It used to be that you had to pay $7-10 per site to take a peak at your report, but the companies finally yielded and are allowing 1 free report per year.

It kind of like taxes, but just like taxes they are a part of finacial responcibility. So set aside the time
