16 CFR Part 610 Amendments to Rule to Prevent Deceptive Marketing of Credit Reports and to Ensure Access to Free Annual File Disclosures
Recently my wife signed up through Freecreditreport.com to obtain what she believed was a free credit report for she and I. As a result of signing up we discovered after several months we were being charged via electronic debit from our bank account. The charge was approximately $15.00 for each of us per month. Although she was able to sign us both up for the "free" service. Freecreditreport.com required us each individually to cancel the subscription. We never would have signed up if we knew up front (not fine print) that we would be charged $30.00 per month. I support any regulation that would prevent this deceptive advertisment. I request that my name be witheld from any publicly accessible web-site. This is based on my current assignment in law enforcement and my usual exemption from public records disclosure under Florida Law.
