FABCO Membership

FABCO offers a 3-part report which includes: a national rental report, a national credit report, and a national criminal report. There is a one time $100 membership set-up fee and clients are billed monthly per report after membership has been activated.

Becoming a member is a simple 3-step process outlined in the tabs below. Our customer service representatives are on hand to assist you in getting your paperwork together, so do not hesitate to call with any questions that may arise.

Step 1 : Requirements for Obtaining Credit Reports
To comply with FCRA requirements from the three National Credit Bureau’s, FABCO must verify the identity and business certification of all of our members.  This includes an office inspection and contract between FABCO and its members (with recertification every five years). The cost of the office inspection is included in the $100 membership set-up fee.

ONE OF THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS must be met to obtain a credit report (In all cases the end user means member)
