Every time the credit score set up says answers are wrong.

I gave all the answers correctly. It keeps saying that the answers are wrong. 


Double check your Equifax credit report - it's possible they have incorrect and/or outdated information about you.

FYI, this is a public community board, and I'm only a community member like you.

The questions come directly from Equifax.  Do any of the answers include "None of the above"?

Do you have a recent credit report directly from Equifax (like the one that you're entitled to on an annual basis for free when using annualcreditreport.com)?  It's always possible that the credit agency has some incorrect information for you.

Also, make sure you don't have a credit freeze at Equifax.  I couldn't get my free credit score until I had lifted my freeze.  Once I got it, it has been fine getting updates even though my freeze is back on at Equifax.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
