A DUNS number can certainly increase your financial credibility. You need to go to the Dun and Bradstreet website, now trendily known as dnb. com and follow their criteria to apply. Be aware however that your SSN is still out there, and obtaining a DUN will not improve your credit. Getting a DUN will not repair or hide prior credit issues.
