Credit Bureaus

TransUnion Credit Bureau

Trans Union was founded in 1968 by the Union Tank Car Company.  In 1969, they purchased the Credit Bureau of Cook County and then launched their own credit bureau for commercial purposes.  Trans Union currently has 250 offices throughout the world and is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.  Trans Union was formerly affiliated with local city credit bureaus as well as a company called the Marmon Group.  However, in 2008 it operates as its own commercial entity. 

A Trans Union report consists of data provided by individual creditors relating to an individual consumer (typically grouped by name and social security number).  It includes all history with previous creditors, from commercial credit card companies to banks and even utility companies. 

Trans Union is still one of the big three bureaus in the United States, along with Experian and Equifax.  TransUnion, like the other large credit bureaus, is regulated as a credit reporting agency under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Credit Success Stories

Before starting with Credit X-Pert's [a preferred partner of CreditScoreAide] I had an 18% interest rate on my car and I couldn't get a credit card ANYWHERE. In Three months my credit score jumped over 100 points. Now my interest rate is 6% and I have 2 new credit cards with a great credit limit! I really didn't expect this but now I am a firm believer in what Credit X-Pert's can do for people. Thanks for EVERYTHING! Read More
