AM2 - The Truth About Credit

Credit of itself is neither good nor bad, it is all about how you use it. If used correctly it can be extremely beneficial to your life. If abused and used in ways it was never intended to be used, it can drag you down to a dark and dangerous place. Come to our session, The Truth About Credit and learn how to use credit for your benefit. Learn about the credit bureaus, your credit score and more importantly your credit history and the sometimes devasting impact when the credit bureaus have incorrect information in your credit history, how to correct and recover from these errors and to move forward. Did you know buying as little as a pack a gum a month can improve your credit score?
