We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Rod Griffin, Director of Public Education with Experian. Experian is a leader in the credit services industry and is 1 of the 3 main credit bureaus that create, manage, and report your credit score. You see the Experian name anytime you run a credit report or score. Rod was kind enough to provide candid answers to many of the questions that our users have asked us. We figured, what’s better than going straight to the source?
We’ve divided this interview into 4 parts:
- Part 1: Credit Basics
- Part 2: Denials and Closing Accounts
- Part 3: Let’s Talk Numbers
- Part 4: User-Submitted Questions
Part 1: Credit Basics is below. We hope you enjoy and learn something along the way!
