I have read the changes proposed on this issue by the FTC and support them all. I read a newspaper ad offering a free annual credit reportabout two and a half months ago. After getting on the website I had to go through several pages of questions and ended up, without noticing on a website called TrueAssure.com San Carlos. I ordered a free report and they asked for a credit card number for "verification" purposes. Like a fool I gave them one. The next month I saw my credit card bill showing I had paid $29.95 for the "free" report. The following month I was charged another $29.95 for the credit report. I called up True Assure and they took me of the list and said they would discontinue monitoring my credit. I feel like a fool having paid $ 60 for a "free report" because I was confused by a website. Thank you for taking steps to ensure that my mistake can no longer be repeated by others.
