A morning newscast had a financial expert on that gave creditreport.com's web site to access for a free credit report. as I was interested in receiving an updated credit report I went to my pc and plugged in creditreport.com which provided fields to complete in order to receive the purportedly free credit report. After entering all the information the credit card information field appeared, as all my credit cards have been canceled, the web site would not allow me to continue. as I went to log off, a pop-up appeared and informed me that I could continue without a credit card. New fields appeared which I duly completed, then a security question appeared requesting that I select an address for a street that I lived on previously, so I clicked and then four streets were given that were totally unknown to me. I then relized that creditreport.com was not on the up and up.
Out of curiousity I then Googled the four streets provided in the security question only to learn that no such streets even existed in my city. Every time I attemted to log off creditreport.com prompts appeared requesting more information with the promise that once completed I would then be provided my "free credit report." Eventually I untangled my pc from this misadventure that I would never had gotten involved with had I not gotten the website from a purportedly reputable news network.
The following morning when I logged on to my email account I had 37 emails in my inbox and only 3 in my junk box. As I went through the emails I relaized that these companies that were soliciting me could have only gotten the information they had about me from the creditreport.com web site.
The information that you enter into creditreport.com under the belief that this is privileged information induced by a promise of security is then handed out to whoever.
The information that I submitted was obtained by fraud. The federal law strictly prohibits this form of wire fraud. Google "white collar crime" and log onto the F.B.I. online reporting center.
