Step 2:  Create a new Account, this will take you about 10+ minutes and can be a lenghty process as they will need specific information from you about your credit report, i.e. "You have a car loan from 2010, which bank is that from", and then it will give you 4 answers.  Some of the answers will be correct, sometimes none of the answers will be correct.  Read VERY Carefully!
