    Who are the big three bureaus of credit?  By name they are Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.  Though they are often referred to as the 3 major credit bureaus they are actually known by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as consumer reporting agencies.  Their job is to collect personal information and financial data on consumers from their sources of information.  These data furnishers are made up of creditors that each individual has had previous dealings with.  They may include commercial creditors, lending institutions, debt collection agencies, courts or utility companies.  All relevant information, including payoffs, open accounts, late payments, delinquent accounts and bankruptcy will be reported back to the credit bureaus.  That information will be of great interest to future lenders that want to know how creditworthy their new applicant is.
