Bad Experience Alert

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with KELLER WILLIAMS
Bad Experience alert! Free credit report.com is not so free. I recent pulled my credit on what I thought was free credit report.com. It turned out to be not so free. I had to enter my credit card number for security verification and I notice on my last credit card bill I was being charge $12 a month for credit protection of which I did not athourized. Maybe they put it in the fine print of their website but either way it was not properly disclosed in my opinion. Aren't they suppose to be protecting peoples credit not using in for there own benefit???

It's in the fine print.  The part that says it's only free if you subscribe.  Seen it on their TV ads too!

 Bummer.  Hope you get it worked out OK.

Hi Mindy. All big companies like that are out to shaft you! I recently went to freecreditreport.com and got my free report. They tell you as long as you cancel within 30 days you will not be charged for their 'monitoring' service. I called up 3 days later and cancelled, but they try to get you to stay on the trial period, hoping you will forget, so they can charge you. The woman on the phone tried and tried to no avail. That is how they tried the game with me. When I cancelled, I got a confirmation #, and I keep it. I will be checking my credit card statements regularly. Its a shame we live in such a society that these companies rely on sleazy tactics to dupe people. Happy New Year! - Ray

That's a perfect example of false advertising.  However, our government has decided to turn a blind eye to this company, because of their connections.  If you're really angry, you should dispute their charge with your credit card company, and if you're really really angry, file a complaint with you state's attorney generals' office, and that of the state where the company is located.  That is the kind of response that makes a difference.

I have used this site before, but I don't remember them asking for a credit card number.  If they did, I'm sure I would have remembered.  It just seems logical that free would mean they don't need a number from you.  I hope you get it resolved easily!
