DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICES AND FRAUD: www.FreeCreditReport.com, associated with or owned by Experian credit reporting agency. Use https://www.annualcreditreport.com instead for the reasons below:

FreeCreditReport.com, which advertises broadly on the cable channels, does not give you anything free. They use deception and trick you into giving them your credit card number for identity verification and then automatically signing you up for buying their (questionable) services at about $17.00 per month. It is very hard to get the credit card companies to reverse the charges because Experian has them by the balls. How do you think they pay for all of that sickening, ridiculous and nauseous advertising? These liars, cheats and thieves are tracking, judging and reporting your credit history.

The only place you can get the Congress-mandated free annual credit report is from https://www.annualcreditreport.com .

    The website clearly says:

    "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"

    All you have to do is cancel within that 7 day period and you won't be charged. Yeah, they'll take your credit card number right off the bat in case you don't cancel, but they don't charge you if you cancel in time. I do this once a year and have never once had an issue with them.

    The reason credit card companies won't refund your money is because freecreditreport.com is the opposite of deceptive and fraudulent; their terms are shown on the main page.

    well...i fileld their page out, then relized that free isn't free, but $14, 95 instead and just closed the page...
    now it's 3 days later and i have a charge from them against my credit card.
    How do I cancel them, especially since i'm overseas and can not dial 888 numbers?

    What the website clearly says and what they doa re two different things entirely! I did read the fine print and canceled by phone 12 hours later. AFTER receiving two emails from them acknowledging my cancellation, I was billed $24.95 (not the advertised $14.95) and they refuse to respond to inquiries.

    We just need to continue getting the word out that they are fraudulent, hurt their business and maybe they will listen.
