4 ‘FreeCreditScore.com’ Reviews
I just wanted to know my credit score. Simple as that. I claim every year the three free credit reports a person is entitled to. I went to this website because it's well advertised. No problem paying the 7.99 membership fee which can be cancelled at any time.
Once you go beyond that, the large botton on the bottom right say "click to get all three reports and credit score". So narally I clicked and as I did, I see to the left of the page in fine print, "by clicking on the botton to the right you will be charged $31.99.
I tried to stop the process but it went through and wham...charged a non-refundable fee.
I am a marketing professional and I have to say I fell for it. Didn't pay attention to fine print.
I am a person of principle though and I have to admit, the website not informing you of any additional fee not to mention the critical fee which enables you to claim what you are there to claim-your credit SCORE. Reports are free don't forget!
This website is misleading and for that I will call them a scam. Yes, in the end they do provide you with reports and a score. But honesty is not their best policy.
DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM. They offer a free 7 day trial and tell you that you will ONLY be charged if you choose to continue membership after 7 days. It is a lie. They will charge your card $30 immediately. READ every tab carefully before clicking as they word it as if you are going to view the free report but in actuality if you click view report from all 3 bureaus they charge you $30. Calling customer service is hopeless as there is NO MANAGER, BOSS, or SUPERVISOR available to speak with you according to the representatives.
Once again, you go to get something advertised as "Free" and technically maybe after all is said and done it is, but in the meantime, they ask for personal info i.e. social security no., address, etc. and then they want your debit or credit card to charge you a refundable $1 fee. Then they go on to say you will be charged for their services in the future.
THIS IS AN OUTRAGEOUS PRACTICE that needs to be stopped. It's not free if you have to give someone your personal information and they charge you with the idea they refund a charge to you. As we all know, it is many times very difficult to get something back once charged! I will post this comment to Facebook and warn my friends not to use this service.
