    If you think you will have free access to your credit report? Think again. The FREE credit report.com. They are run by mighty net.com. When you order your FREE trial 7 day report. All over the website is free credit card will not be charged. Just a lot of falsified advertising in my opinion. They will in fact charge your credit card for $29.95. I canceled the same evening as soon as I saw the item post on my card. I wanted to see if they charged or not. So I had my bank account on one tab and their website on another. Sure enough it hit. So what is free about that? I canceled the subscription immediately. They now refuse to reimburse me. They also caused and over draft charge. I wasn't expecting them to charge the card. I am all too trusting I suppose. So it is much better to write Experian,  Transunion, and Euifax yourself. Don't waste your money on these fraudulent websites. They appear to be able to do what ever they want and get away with it. Even the Better Business Bureau seems reluctant to get involved. So what is the cover up. These people are taking your hard earned money for nothing. The report I received was horrible to try and read it. It looks like someone typed it up on a type writer. Also the report number doesn't even work when I try to go back into the website. I am sure they can get your report for free, just as a bank or other lender. Then charging you for it. On top of all of that, half of the report was someone else's. Don't take the bait. Stay well clear of this bogus company.

      I agree FreeCreditReport.com is a ripoff and a scam. You can get your credit report free once per year at AnnualCreditReport.com. The scam artists twist their website name to screw the public. You know what is really sad though? FreeCreditReport.com is run by one of the big three credit bureaus. That's right. The guys we should trust with our personal information run the biggest scam in the country right now.

    The advertising on the TV/CABLE networks have a disclaimer on the in fine print that says that you must enroll in their program. You can get your report for free, but it is limited in scope and doesn't have all your information on it.

    The reason for the charge to the card is because they are getting you to pay for the month of service, which is suppose to be missed by you, until you get your statement the following month.

    Yes, it is gimmick. smile

    Yes it is a gimmick, but I have been with freecreditreport.com for over a year.  I get charged once a month and it is nowhere near $29.95.  I get charged less than half of that price.  There are different packages you can sign up for.  Take a closer look at their website.  I get email alerts and a monthly report.  Any changes are marked for me, and I think they are the best option out there for people that want to monitor their credit scores.

      If they are the best for you that's great. But this website is not Free credit report.com. It is just Credit report.com. I have tried the freecreditreport.com some time ago and did receive a free credit report. But this other website is a sham. I got someone else's report. How is that possible?

    Unfortunately, this is how many free trial offers work. I have a genuine hate for TV ads that put small print and expect consumers to be able to read (even while squinting) the fine print.

    on a related note, you are allowed a free annual credit report. See http://www.ftc.gov/freereports for more.

      Yes thank you I am aware of that and these companies are suppose to be a quick and simple aid for getting your free report. Unfortunately they are charging you even when it says free trial. Simply false advertisement.
