16 CFR Part 610 Amendments to Rule to Prevent Deceptive Marketing of Credit Reports and to Ensure Access to Free Annual File Disclosures
I would just like to comment on the proposed amendments to the Commission's Free Annual File Disclosures Rule, 16 CFR Part 610. These amendments would require certain advertisements for "free credit reports" to include prominent disclosures designed to prevent consumers from confusing these "free" offers with the federally mandated free annual file disclosures available through the single centralized source. In addition, the Commission proposes amendments to delay advertisements for products and services through the centralized source until after the consumer receives his or her free annual file disclosure, and to prohibit other practices that may interfere with the free file disclosure process. I would also like to request confidential treatment, including the factual and legal basis for it. Thank you.
