I thought I knew all about the information consumer reporting agencies collected about me. Then I discovered The Work Number – a database that reports every paycheck I received from my company, with net and gross amounts, dating back to my date of hire six years ago.
Another consumer reporting agency shows the results of a 2016 echocardiogram. (That was normal.) Yet another tracks insurance claims on my home and car. If I had made too many returns at retail stores or bounced a check at a casino, this could also show up in a database.
