Free Credit Report
United States - 75013
I have had this amount being taken from my account since February and my bank cannot give me any details on who this is payment is for. Can anyone help please or at least advise what can be done here...
BEWARE: when signing up to get a free copy of your credit report on freecreditreport.com. On receipt of receiving your report, this company begins automatically charging your credit card $14.95 / month, if you don't read the fine print. It is a SCAM. You will sign up for a service called CIC Triple Advantage. The customer care rep I spoke with took me to the site and talked me through the language in the fine print about signing up for CIC*Triple Advantage (whatever this is). They refused to credit me back for the unwanted services, and said I did not read the terms and conditions closely, and I was at fault.
The customer care rep promised to email confirmation of my cancellation to my email address which I never received. I called back and asked them to resend the email address, and the customer care agent was not able to help to resend an email for my cancellation confirmation. This is unacceptable! Basic customer care support. This is a sketchy operation.
She advised that I would need to write a letter and fax to their Customer Relations group at 949.567.3858 in order to get a copy of my confirmation of cancellation. I asked to speak with her supervisor. I found it very hard to believe that Customer Care could not send an email to a customer!! The supervisor said he would send a request to this "special" group on my behalf, but even he could not send me an email to confirm my account had been closed.
DON"T BE A VICTIM of not reading fine print. Stay away from freecreditreport.com.
They are scam artists who prey on consumer error.
Someone better credit my 6 months of chare or susan warnik will here from me . this was found on the consumer web site (The trio of reporting agencies established a single authorized Web source for customers to access the information for free: AnnualCreditReport.com. That is the only federally mandated source for free, no-strings-attached credit reports.
The rest of the Internet Web sites advertising "free" reports -- more than 100 at last count -- are in fact impostors whose real agenda is to steer unsuspecting consumers into a for-profit marketing enterprise, according to a World Privacy Forum in-depth investigation and report.)
I found this in the complaints, so I have proof this is a scam.
I'm being charged $12.95 a month by CIC Triple Advantageirvine for credit check reports, which apparently... I inadvertently agreed to paying for after getting a 'free' credit report! I've just spent 1 hour on the phone with them, and only managed to get two months money back of the 7 months I've paid for! i now have to write to their 'Consumer Relations Group to try to recover the balance of $64.75. What do you think my chances of recouping that will be huh...
My wife went to the website and took advantage of a free 30 day offer for Credit Report services. Before the 30 days was up she called and notified the company that we wanted to cancel. She was assured it was cancelled. We just got our credit card statement and a $14.95 was presented . I called and complainted then they claimed they dont show anywhere that my wife had cancelled the service and that I would have to pay the $14.95. I see that I am not the only one that they are doing this to. I would like to take this matter up with the US Attorney General's office. How do I do that??
Started filling out for their "free"creditreport. but cancelled. A couple days ago i saw they charged my credit card, just called them and talked to a managed she says she can see that i viewed it, and will not refund my 14.95. I told her i never have been to that website, i cancelled it, and never recieved emails from them. So told me they sent me emails, and that they will not refund my money. I sent in a complaint to the BBB and hopefully they will resolve this. its horrible how the can do that. They kept telling me not to believe what the internet says, but then they turn around and screw you over. BAD BAD Company. So rude there
On 10/27/07 went on line to request a free credit report at freecreditreport.com. Prior to proceeding with information I was asked to submit credit card information, at which time I was told my credit card would not be billed if I cancel within 30 days.
Upon checking my credit card statement on-line today there was a $25.90 charge from CIC Triple Advantage. I called (11/15/07) CIC and spoke with a Ciara and told her I wanted to cancel the service and ask if my credit would be reimbursed and she said "NO". I was also told the reason for the $25.90 charge was because $12.95 was for a incomplete request I made in August (which I do not recall making). I did do the request on 10/27/07 because of a charge that had appeared on a Transunion report when I applied for a loan with my credit union.
If a credit report is "FREE", why was I charged to go on line to look at my report and why do these sites require a credit card? This is a scam and need to be stopped.
CIC Triple Advantage need to be put out of business and required to refund every dime they have stole from consumers.
A couple of months ago my son (Aaron) and I followed online instructions to receive our FREE credit reports. Of course you can't even get a free credit report without giving your credit card information. We both canceled the service within the 30-day period so we would not be charged a monthly fee. On Monday, October 15th CIC Triple Advanta put a hold on my account for $12.95 without my authorization. I called to inquire and they said Aaron had requested a free credit report on September 15th and that is a lie because I was the one who got a free credit report on that date.
THIS IS A TOTAL RIP-OFF!!!
I though I was the only person cheated by this company until I searched google for a way to cancel my membership. There are enough people with complaints to file a class action lawsuit against this company for fraudulent activities. If anyone would like to join me in putting together such a suit, please e-mail me at tarakittykat (AT) hotmail.com.
