I signed up for my free credit report on freecreditreport.com. The only thing that they don't tell you about your free credit report is that it isn't free. In fact it has ended up costing my close to $50.00 and would have cost me much more had I not caught it early. See, Freecreditreport.com just doesn't give you a credit report, it gives you a whole membership full of exciting features and unlimited access that you don't even know you're signing up for. And to make the bliss of having your credit report at your finger tips even better they give your information out to other credit report agencies affiliated with them; inadvertently signing you up for memberships you never even knew you had. And then one day, if you're lucky like me, you look at you bank statement online and realize that you have been charged $19.95 for one credit report agency and $14.95 for the other. You call to find out what the hell has happened and they tell you you're signed up for a monthly premium service, that would have charged you every month for the service you never knew you had. The funny thing was that I called two different numbers for two "different" credit report agencies: Triple Advantage (877-4816825) /Experian Credit Info (866-5067894) that both led me back to an answering machine for Freecreditreport.com. Coincidence? I think not.

Freecreditreport.com you can have your fancy TV jingles and read-between-the-lines business, but my business you will never have. And I think many people including, the Better Business Bureau, will agree...this is a rip-off.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Read the homepage.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

How could you NOT know you were enrolling in their credit monitoring service?

You were notified TWICE that it was a trial period and that if you didn't cancel your membership your account would be charged. They have had the following notices on their website for a year that I know of:

''From their HOME PAGE:

'''IMPORTANT INFORMATION
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 7-day trial period**, you will be billed $14.95 for each month that you continue your membership.

ConsumerInfo.com, Inc. and Freecreditreport.com are not affiliated with the annual free credit report program. Under a new Federal law, you have the right to receive a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months from each of the three nationwide consumer reporting companies. To request your free annual report under that law, you must go to www.annualcreditreport.com.'''

From the 'Step 2' page where you enter your credit card information:

'''Your credit card will not be charged during the free trial period. However, valid credit card information is required to establish your account.'''

Further down the page (about 2 inches on a 20 inch monitor)

'''Payment Information
When you order your free report here, you will begin your free trial membership in Triple Advantage SM Credit Monitoring. If you don't cancel your membership within 9 days of enrollment, you will be billed $14.95 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.'''

You were not ripped off.

I do find it amusing that the clowns at freecreditreport.com don't seem to know if it is a 7 (seven) day or 9 (nine) day free trial. Perhaps someone should point this out to them.

"The only thing that they don't tell you about your free credit report is that it isn't free.."

- They do tell you but you have to READ. They disclose this several times during the process. Including the disclosure right on the FIRST page.
