Free Credit ReportUnauthorized credit card charge

I did not receive a credit report of any sort. I did go their web site and started to fill out a request. Then discovered they wanted too much personal information, so I left the site without even requesting a free report. Today I received my credit card statement which revealed a $14.95 charge (CreditReport.com [protected] CA. I did not order a credit report, and even I had, it was supposed to be FREE. Please advise them that I will NOT pay this charge and to notify my credit card company. Thank you.

    Always use ANNUALCREDITREPORT.COM when you want to check your credit reports for FREE!!! There is no catch, no membership to sign up for.

    Those guys at freecreditreport.com are scam artists if you ask me. Every person is entitled to a free credit report from each of the 3 credit reporting agencies once a year for FREE.

    we have had the exact same thing happen to us. We are getting $15 of the $29.95 back but they claimed that once you logged into your account that it popped up asking if we wanted all 3 reports and that the charge would be $29.95. I was looking at it with her and NEVER did that pop up. If it would have we never would have accepted. A bunch of crooks! We are going to contact the BBB about them

    Unless it run by the government, and actually usually the government. Anything that "advertises" "free" isn't. people don't advertise for fun. - sorry to hear that.

    I followed an ad to get a free credit report from "Free Credit Report" (http://www.freecreditreport.com/). I didn't expect it was part of a free membership trial, and I will be charged 12.95 monthly after the first month. I saw two charges from them on my bank statement. When I try to get a hold of someone on the phone, I'm put on hold for 30 minutes and then the call is hung up each time.

    I signed up for Free Credit Report.Com on the advice of my bank and a real estate agent relative to a loan to purchase a home. One cannot get their credit report on the site unless they give a credit card number and information. I was suspicious but did so due the credibility of the persons referring me to the service.

    I viewed my credit scores and logged off. Terms said service I used was free. My credit card statement came and their were multiple charges for my one time use. The charges kept recurring monthly, the company would not remedy the problem, so I cancelled my credit card and got a new credit card number. The charges were supposedly for some kind of monthly membership. Caveat emptor.

    you put a $29.95 charge on my debit card that I did not know you where going to do.
    that charge has made me not get my electric bill pain.
    so you need to take that charge OFF!!!

    I need my money I only get $700.00 a month to pay rent and utilites. so thanks for making me short on my money. I now get to eat potatoes for 2 weeks because of this. I am disabled and the credit check was NOT FREE!!!

    Stop this charge to my Discover card like I have requested. After several attempts, this had stopped and then started again. Do not want your service and would appreciate it if you would stop this charge for free credit reports. (this is a scam to begin with). Nothing free about it and $14.95 a month charge that will not stop no matter how many times you request for it to stop. PLEASE STOP THIS CHARGE.

    Just a comment guys... I'm in the neutral side because I know what you all into and I know how the business works... all I can say is its part of the marketing strategies... when you first went to the website, did you all read the contents of the homepage? the disclaimers/important notices, the ads, everything?? did you?? First, you must read every page so that you know what your signing in... second, read the terms and conditions... if you don't read it and just agree on it then your lost because after reading it and click the box to check it to agree, it means that you did agree that after the trial period that you'll be billed with the membership fee or every transactional charge... As I said, its part of the marketing strategies... So from now on, be mindful and cautious on the terms and conditions that you'll be agreeing...

    When you signed up for their free report, did you not give them your credit card/banking info?

    Yeah, that is how they got it.

    I was told that this product was free if I cancelled withing 10 days of checking it out. I had cancelled withing 4 or 5 days. I just received my credit card bill and I'm being charged $14.95, which was the amount that they had said would charge if we did not cancelled within 10 days. I called and spoke with a representative and cancelled, but they lied. I want my credit card of those people who are lying to everyone.

    I have never recieved a free credit report from this company or even entered my information to this company, yet I am being charged from my bank account. I never approved ANY transactions for this. II know that I never approved it because, for one I have no money in my account and two I already know that my credit is bad. This casused ny account to overdraw, so how can I get this amount refunded to me and stop the charges?

    The problem is simple and should be illegal: The only way for you to cancel your membership is to phone them. Not by email, not in person, not by sending them a letter...only by phone. When you call to cancel, they tell you that you will receive an email confirming your cancellation. But if they don't send the email, which they did not in my case and I assume yours too, there is no evidence of your attempt to cancel. Which means they will continue charging until you try and cancel again. I think this qualifies as a scam.

    VERY DISHONEST and UNDERHANDED BUSINESS PRACTICE!!!

    I'd had the same experience. I called was able to cancel my membership, but they would not refund my money. They instead try to tell how great their service was and convince me to stay.

    I hope they experience a class action lawsuit.

    This company got through to my email with a "free" credit report offer. You sign up using your credit card number, but they assure you that there will be no charge, that it's only for security purposes. There are a lot of pages to the sign-up process, and they assure you all the way through. Sure enough, no charge to my account...the first month. Here it is a month later, and bingo--$12.95 to MNICreditReport.com ! Not cool!

    Has anyone had success with getting this charge removed from their credit card. I was billed $14.95, however I did not realize that I needed to cancel within seven days of obtaining the free report. No email was sent to me to that effect. They have since cancelled however will not reimburse me the $14.95. Any luck, let me know. Thank you.

    I printed off my free credit report. I did not give out any personal info. Somehow they acquired my checking account number and charged my account without my permission. I called them and they refused to refund my money. These people need to be shut down. They are scamming people. Please stop them from doing this to anyone else.
