    They offered me a free credit report, however it was a disguide for a monthly subscription. I want my money back. On my credit cad statements, I was charged 16.50 by "CIC* Triple Advantage / [protected] - CA". Thye should be fined for false advertisement.

    SCAM! May 01, 2009

    I signed up with FreeCreditReport.com and called to cancel my membership before the trial term expired... Next thing I know, there is a $14.95 charge on my credit card. Called Free Credit Report and was told that I did not meet the deadline of my trial period and canceled my membership past due time.. Lady on the phone was a rude ### and would not refund my money, or let me speak with any one in charge of that whole circus...What a scam! Beware..I'm contacting the Attorney's Generals office ASAP!

    Yea, I signed up to this freecredit report crap and called to cancel the next day, and apparently the lady who I spoke with still kept my account activated! What kinda crap is this? Make sure when you do call, that you are listning carefully to whoever it is when they talk to you because its their sole purpose to keep you interested in paying every month. And if you get some weird indian lady with a thick accent who you will be able to barely understand her English, ask for a translator or something.

    Same here, this was very misleading. I called and they credited me one month of $14.95 and canceled "my account". Don't use Freecreditreport.com get information from ClarkHoward.com on truly free sites.

    Yup. $14.95 here. I can't believe I got suckered into it. I read this board before cancelling so didn't even bother trying to get the money back.

    I have been billed for 3 months and didnt know it. I never authorized the charge either. I think it is somehow linked with either freecredit report.com or equifax.com. And when you try one you are automatically enrolled.

    I have been billed now for how long until I just noticed it on my last bill from Chase. I have never arthorized this charge, so how can I get it off my Cedit Bill. This goes back to February of 2008 I know for sure.

    I called the 1-800 number and I was able to cancel my account and get my last months billing returned -- but they couldn't return any of the previous months.

    They were at least polite.
    It would be nice if the fee was better explained on their site.

    I. as well was scammed out of $15 by freecreditreport.com. I just called them and expressed my discontent with the way they treat their customers in putting them in a position where they are being scammed out of a money. I kept repeating that a FREE credit report should be free and they should not be doing this to their customers. I also made mention to the fact that the majority of their customers and users are doing this credit report because they are worried about their credit standing, such as myself and now they are taking money from us? She kept saying that the terms and conditions are on the front page over and over again - I told her that she might want to google free credit report and scams and then read all those people who have filed reports against them.

    Long story short, she told me that she will refund the Month that i was charged for and my account will be cancled. DON'T LET THEM TELL YOU THERE ARE NO REFUNDS!

    All the charges are from www.freecreditreport.com. When you pull a copy of your supposedly FREE credit report, they kinda "forget" to tell you that there will be reoccurring charges to your account. I just called and canceled my account. WHAT A TOTAL SCAM!!!

    This is a scam. Not only that, but I also found memberships to blockbuster.com and columbiahouse.com on my card shortly after CIC's. I suspect CIC. I called CIC and they did reverse and cancel my CIC charges. I gave them an earful and their scripted answer was "we have far more happy members." I told them they have unaware members. They said the membership was "clearly noted" on the web site, to which I went off, saying "IF IT WAS CLEARLY NOTED I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT!!!" I had to dispute the other 2 with my credit card company since there was no way to talk with anyone at blockbuster or columbia house. I am waiting on the outcome of those and keeping an eye on my credit card account.

    Just so you know, they were charging my card $12.95 for each cardholder. My wife called and cancelled and they only cancelled hers, so we kept getting charged until I cancelled (I never even signed up for a "free" credit report.

    I did not authorized CIC*Triple Advanage to charge $14.95 to my credi card in February and March 2008. It took me some time to find out what this charge consisted of. I spoke with Ruella at CIC and was told I did not cancel my account within 30 days.

    I had no knowledge of any account with this company. When I rceived my FREE credit report from Experian, I checked a BOX indicating I did not want to receive reports. How did CIC obtain my personal information? To what Federal or State govening body can I register a formal complaint for this unethical, sneaky company? Is there any way to obtain a refund?

    I noticed a charge for $21.90 on my account and after speaking to my bank they gave me a phone number to Robbins Triple Advantage CIC with a phone number [protected]. I have called and left several messages without getting any response. I do not know who they are and i did not authorize this charge. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.

    Thank you.

    Same thing here...
    I assumed at first that I was being doubled charged (didn't look at the fine details of the statement) for my Equifax account. Instead, it's this FCR fraud scam charging me for a services I used once to view information on an invalid collection account based on a medical bill I paid when I got the first statement from them. It was the only site that wasn't vauge about the collection agency, and I was obviously scared since I have never missed a payment or have ever been late on one. It was to the understanding of the website that e-mail updates were a courtesy.

    Not only will I call up my credit card carrier and dispute all charges from this company, but I really hope that calling them later will get my refund back. If not, I'm sure they will love to hear from my attorney.

    I'm a 22 year old student who doesn't appreciate excess expenses.

    A "Free" credit report should be just that; "free".

    I was also charged by (CIC*TRIPLE ADVANTAGE [protected] CA) I actually only caught this bill because I only had a few bucks left in my checking account. I received a letter in the mail, from my bank, stating that I had an O/D fee of $30.00 for a purchase of $12.95.. I did some research on my bank statements and found 6 months worth of charges.. 6 months being, that's as far back as I could go on my online statement. I know that I visited FreeCreditReport.com around June and tried to sign-up for a credit report that I needed because I was trying to get a new laptop. I'm going to call them tomorrow and hopefully get everything refunded, including my O/D fee from the bank. I never dreamed of being charged this amount of money for a "FREE" service that I never even benefited from... I had NO credit at the time of the report (only 20yrs old) ..FreeCreditReport gave me BAD credit if anything. I'll be smarter from now on and actually check my bank statements and try to keep a better log of what $$ that I spend online and offline.

    It IS funny how you google the charge and find everyone else with the same complaint! LOL Yeah, so... mine was $12.00 though and it came from the "freecreditreport.com" button that came with the software "Quicken". Funny thing is that I don't remember signing up for a month trial though. I was under the impression that it was free and I could check whenever I wanted... A friend told me that I should call and cancel, but I didn't believe him... :( (I perish for my lack of knowledge, and I didn't take heed to the WARNINGS and the SIGNS!) It is a bunch of cr*p and I do agree.
