BISMARCK - Effective today, North Dakotan residents can get a free credit report from all three major credit reporting agencies, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says. Under a federal law passed last year, people can access one free credit report each year from the three nationwide credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Prior to the change, people were entitled to a free credit report only after being turned down for credit, Stenehjem said. "A credit report is the first line of defense against identity theft," Stenehjem said.
