CFO Jimmy Patronis: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion Offer Free Credit Reports for a Year

7/14/2020
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis is reminding Floridians about a recent announcement that credit reporting agencies Experian, Equifax and TransUnion are now offering free online credit reports to all Americans on a weekly basis through April 2021. The major credit reporting agencies are offering this service for the next year to help individuals and families protect their financial health during the sudden and unprecedented hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “During these extraordinary times it is even more important to consistently monitor and review your credit reports for accuracy and signs of fraudulent activity. The Federal Trade Commission ranks Florida second in fraud and identity theft reports nationwide, costing Floridians an estimated nearly $90 million in fraud last year alone. All Floridians should carefully check their credit reports for errors and incomplete information and report any signs of fraud immediately. Good credit is a vital asset worth protecting to ensure a strong financial future for you and your family."
