To the FTC, RE FACTA Free File Disclosures Proposed Rule, Matter No. R411005
Faster free reports, with a privacy guarantee
To the FTC:
I urge you to make annual free credit reports available more quickly to all Americans, rather than delaying
access to most of the country at the unjustified request of the credit bureaus. With the increase in identity theft
I believe that is is very important to be able to access my credit report annually to make sure that no one is
using my identity.
Also, the rule should make clear that information is only collected to verify identity. Many consumers, including
me, don't think it is fair to give up personal information to take advantage of an important new federal right to a
free credit report.
