No-Strings-Attached Free Credit Reports
TheNew York Times reports that the Federal Trade Commission is concerned that some sites, like Experian owned FreeCreditReport.com, uses the offer of free credit reports to lure customers to pay a $14.95 monthly service that alerts subscribers to important changes in their credit status. The Times also reports that 9 million people are spending a total of $650 to $700 million annually on Experian’s credit reporting services.
Unlike other "free" credit report services,Annualcreditreport.com is entirely free for your credit reports. NO CREDIT CARD NEEDED! If you want your credit score, it is available for a modest extra charge.
Don’t be fooled by funny TV ads or catchy radio jingles. Make sure that free means free! TheFTC wants to ensure consumers aren’t paying for credit reports that are available for free, so it has produced two of its own videos that parody the FreeCrediReport.com ads: The Restaurant and The Apartment. Enjoy the videos below and remember to get your absolutely-free-no-strings-attached credit reports at AnnualCreditReport.com, baby!
