Citizens

Living Abroad Have Difficulty Getting Credit Reports: BusinessWeek

BusinessWeek's Sonja Ryst reports

today that U.S. citizens living outside the United States

often have trouble getting the free credit reports they are

legally entitled to. One big reason: the only FTC-approved site

for obtaining free scores, AnnualCreditReport.com,

can only be accessed by U.S.-based computer IP addresses, which

are only available to U.S. government offices and military bases

overseas. Other expatriates can't reach the site.

Ryst's

"Five for the Money" report gives 5 tips for expats

who want to check their credit reports, whether for fear of

identity theft or simply to see how they're doing.
