Why must I use a credit card with the same billing address as my home address?

It is one of the protective procedures used to secure your sensitive information. If you want to order your TransUnion Credit Report but do not have a credit card that meets this online identity verification requirement, you can order by mail.

What is the difference between a consumer disclosure and a credit report?

Consumer disclosure: Only you have access to your consumer disclosure. A consumer disclosure of a credit report lists all inquiries including promotional inquiries, account review inquiries and some suppressed information. Creditors do not have access to this version. The consumer disclosure version also shows you some accounts that have been suppressed from appearing on your credit reports at a creditor’s request, if applicable. 

Credit report: The credit report, also called the “business version” of your credit report, is an abbreviated version of the TransUnion consumer disclosure available to you. This is the version of your credit report that creditors see. The credit report version does not contain promotional inquiries or account review inquiries, or any suppressed information.
