OMG DONT DO Freecreditreport.com Offer Read This!!!
« on: December 09, 2007, 04:59:41 pm »
Wow I was just browsing the web looking for information on the paid offers I was interested on doing and I came upon the following for the Free Credit Report.com Offer!  Also I am guessing the other creditreport offers are a scam as well because there is only one site that is goverment surtified to offer such a service!!!




"I'm thinking of a number..." Sure, the number of people who have been fleeced! FreeCreditReport.com has been advertising heavily on television, saying that you can get a FREE credit report at their website.  The young smiling guy says

"I'm thinking of a number between 450 and 850.  Do you know what it is?"... "You can find out right now at FreeCreditreport.com!"

WARNING: FREE CREDIT REPORT.COM IS A SCAM! The name of the website and their advertising is misleading and clearly attempting to imply that you can obtain free, obligation-free credit reports from them. The State of Florida Office of the Attorney General is investigating FreeCreditReport.com.
 

FreeCreditReport.com is not the website that offers the free credit reports in provided by the US federal directive.

Only at the very end of the commercial do they quickly mention that you need to sign up for a package. ("Free credit report comes with enrollment to TripleAdvantage", with no further explanation - note: subsequent versions of the commercial indicate it is a subscription). The website contains the following fine print:

When you order your free report here, you will begin your free trial membership in Triple AdvantageSM Credit Monitoring. If you don’t cancel your membership within the 30-day trial period, you will be billed $12.95 for each month that you continue your membership. If you are not satisfied, you can cancel at any time to discontinue the membership and stop the monthly billing; however, you will not be eligible for a pro-rated refund of your current month’s paid membership fee.

FreeCreditReport.com has also been investigated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and forced to pay fines.

The only way to get your free annual credit report is by going through the FTC-mandated website: AnnualCreditReport.com.  The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, set up this website, where you can request a free credit report under U.S. federal law. This is due to a recent amendment to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act requiring each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. Many other websites claim to offer "free" credit reports, but may charge you for another product if you accept a "free" report. Don't be fooled!

Here is the link to the rules:

http://www.fusioncash.net/tos.php?forum


The Second Rule reads as follows:

Respect our advertisers
Do not discuss cancellation or post disparaging remarks


It would be in your best interest, Moneyman68 and Oscaplus0, to become extremely familiar with these rules.

Moneyman, if you feel so strongly about this issue, it would have been much wiser to have contacted Admin first before posting in the Forum.

Enough said.

Hm.....I think you should read the terms and conditions on all offers...thats part of how it works. I've done the offer with no problems before...I think its your fault for not reading.

That's why you have to read all the fine print no matter how much it strains your eyes. I didn't do that offer because it does say in the fine print on that site about joining the Triple Advantage program and your card being charged a monthly fee.
