Can you go to Dun and Bradstreet® and check out your own profile to see if there even is one?
Yes, you can. But here’s the problem.
If you go to Dun and Bradstreet® too early and set up a credit profile, if you pay to have them set up a credit profile, they’ll give you a number and they’ll give you access where you can log in to see if you have a credit profile. Now you’re not going to have one if you don’t know you have one, so you don’t need to see that.
But they’ll say, “Okay, depending on what package you get from them, anywhere from free to $300, $700, we’ll build a credit profile for you. “They really won’t do it. They’ll just get a number for you and they’ll see if there are any vendors out there that will report.
Then when they start to check your corporate compliance, if everything isn’t in order, they’ll red flag you or they’ll put comments in your file. Secretary of State lists this person as a CEO. This person from the company listed somebody different as its CEO. They’ll start putting things on there, negative information.
Odds Are, You will Red Flagged (Fried) Your D & B® File,
Even with D & B®‘s Own Program!
You can access it. But we caution people, don’t go to Dun and Bradstreet® and start anything until you’re in corporate compliance and everything is verifiable, or you’re going to start getting negative information put on. It’s almost impossible to get any of that changed or taken off.
