I signed into the free trial for CreditReport.com to get my credit score to give to a prospective landlord. I clicked on "view my report.” I got a call from my credit card company about suspected fraudulent activity and noticed that I had been billed for $31.95 and $1.00 from CreditReport.com. I called the customer service representative and he told me that I had requested all three reports, an upgrade in membership that came with a one-time fee of $31.95. He told me that I would have seen a screen telling me this info and I would have had to click okay to see the three reports. I saw absolutely no such screen and I was not informed at all that I would be charged $31.95. I saw posts similar to this one, so even if I blacked out and messed up, they don't do a good job of making that clear. I will never use them again.

Well, we needed a credit report to move so I thought I would just use the trial and end membership last September 2011. I was also fighting breast cancer. I was very sick. I could not even balance the check book. I called and spoke with someone. They said they would take care of it for me and send me an email. Well, I did not think of it much after until today when I started going through my bank statements. So I called them, they said I never cancelled my husband’s. I did, but they are telling me I did not. I asked for a refund, they gave me 1 month back but charged me since September. I spoke with 3 different agents. What a headache. After everything my family is going through, that’s all they could do for me. Thanks CreditReport.com, I will make sure I tell everyone about my experience with you!

I tried to cancel 7 days after signing up for service online. After the rep tried 8 times to get me to stay, he finally said he'd cancel my service and send a confirmation email. I didn’t receive it. I called back a day later and was assured it was cancelled and I would be receiving two cancellation emails. Two days later, I’m still waiting. Reviewing various websites confirms they have a long history of ignoring requests for cancellations, yet there seems not to be any punitive action taken.

When I was filling up the application for a job there was a link of CreditReport.com. website and suppose to go through to get the credit score to finish up the application. On the website, it was saying 30 days free trial for the membership. When I checked their website, it was for a 7-day free period. I have call them up and cancelled the membership immediately. But they charged me $21.20 on my credit card two days later. I put a dispute with the credit card company, but they made a three way call and the rep from creditreport.com was saying that I got charged because I cancelled it on the 9th day. I could have called them up early had I realized that their trial is only for 7 days instead of 30 days. When my credit card company got involved, finally they gave me a credit of $ 10.60, which I was not satisfied. Please beware of this company, they misguide you to get your money. They get you to join their membership one way or another, but it's very hard to get out from that trap. They are not a reliable company to do business with. Please be aware of this company.

Where is the class action suit against creditreport.com? CreditReport.com should be called. "We are going to steal your money every month and there is nothing you can do about it." First, they tell you that you have 30 days to cancel, but don't provide you with any way to do so. Next, you do a bunch of research to figure out how to cancel on your own, jump through their hoops and think you have cancelled--they may even give you a meaningless "confirmation number"--but they still charge you $19.95. So, call the number on your bank statement and they will claim to cancel it for you, but they don't. Call again the next month and they claim to never have spoken with you and have no record of your call so you have to cancel again, but they still charge you another $19.95. They are a scam—all you can do is change your card number because they will just keep stealing from you.

I applied for the free credit report and I had 30days to cancel their service or they will take $19.95 from my account. After filling all the required fields, I got my report, but to my surprise they did not provide the web site or number to cancel their services. I did research and I found the website to cancel the services. I e-mailed them to cancel the services the same day. To my surprise, my account was over draft because Experian still charged my bank account $19.95 twice.

I went to their site and did what I thought was a free Credit Report. I decided to cancel my membership the same day because I did not want to pay for services that I did not want to receive. I spoke to Cleo who even gave me a hard time about cancelling my account, which I thought was unprofessional, rude & made me mad. She said that I would not be charged for anything so I believed her. I decided to check my bank account just in case, & surprise! There were 3 charges totaling $32.00 from creditreport.com. I then called back to get my money back & was pretty much told I'm ** on getting my money back, which I think is a bunch of **! I've filed BBB complaints and will not be letting this issue go.

This was advertised on the home page as a free credit report--a charge for three reports. I looked at one and then I was billed for $14.95 on my Visa which had been listed as compromised. I called and the girl stated that it was for the first month's service and it's non-refundable and that I had not read the ad correctly.

After several years of being bombarded from T.V.,radio, e-mails and the print media regarding a free annual credit score I went on-line and received my score from the above company, after giving them my credit card numbers, of course, just in case I wanted to have a membership. Which I didn't. When I next went on-line to view my on-line banking account there was a $14.95 pending charge upon viewing that account! On 7-25-11 I called the above number and talked with Kevin and accused his company of false advertising and threatened to contact your agency and report their practices. He backed down and said I would have free full membership privileges for a few months and then membership would be automatically cancelled and charge removed. I do not want to wait a "few months" to have the charge removed because if it is not paid promptly then credit card company will add interest to this balance! As of this date, 7-31-11, the charge remains.

I have been applying for jobs online recently, and I have found several jobs that seem too good to be true. The supposed hiring manager requested that I first get a credit report before we set up an interview. They explained that the report had to be from the creditreport.com because they are familiar with the site. After getting a free credit report which cost me $14.95, the employers kept asking if I went and got the credit report, and they refused to set up an interview or give a phone number. Creditreport.com obviously has something to do with this scam, and I would not use that site.

I began receiving unsolicited emails, phone calls and text messages from ****. Their emails provide no way to unsubscribe or opt-out of their emails so I sent a reply to ****. Their answer was to call them to make a change to my account. I explained that I have no account with them, have never done any business with them, and again asked that my email address be removed from their list. Once again, their response is to call them. So I called.
The representative on the phone asked for my social security number to verify my account. I explained that I have no account and was given the number to stop receiving emails. He argued that I must have an account and needed my social security number to look it up. I asked yet again what it would take to stop receiving their emails and he said he needed to get into my account. They provide no easy way to unsubscribe from their emails and ask for private personal information which is a violation of the CAN-SPAM act. I've also filed a complaint through the BBB and the FTC.

I signed up for the free credit report for my husband and myself to view our credit scores. I did receive the reports. We then went on vacation for a week and when we returned, we were disgusted to see that they obviously had sold our email addresses to outside sources and from the day we signed up to the present, we have both received hundreds of spam emails on both of our email addresses. It is absolutely appalling that a company who is there to protect your identity has the right to forward your personal information to companies that we did not authorize to have.
We do not use these email addresses for everyday purchases, etc., they are our personal addresses. We have another email address that we use when we make purchases, etc., so that we do not get unwanted mails. We feel very violated from a company that is supposed to protect your personal information. This should not be allowed to happen. Seeing their deception, I can just imagine the others that have been affected. Once I realized that this was happening, I obviously canceled the membership, but it was a day or two after the free trial date deadline so we were charged a combined total of $29.90. I feel like I paid money for being harassed! Also, it is so annoying and time consuming to go through my inbox everyday and either mark as spam or unsubscribe to each email. They should be liable for their actions!

I signed up for a free credit report. They automatically signed me up for their credit monitoring program under a free 7-day trial,which is not very long for such a program. They never sent a courtesy email to warn me that the free trial was ending soon. When I noticed that they charged me on my card statement, I went to the web site to cancel my account. The site has no clear way to cancel so I sent them an email through their contact us page asking them to cancel my account and not to bill me any more.
I received an email a few days later saying that I would need an order number to cancel. They never supplied me with such a number so I had to call. On my first call, I got a person who tried to talk me out of canceling because I had some alerts. So, I checked these alerts and called back. The next person I talked to decided to do what I asked and canceled my account. I asked if the latest charge would refunded to me and I got the explanation about services being already rendered and no refund was possible. This company works the system to its own advantage by having a trial period that is too short to be any good, and by not making it easy to cancel your account. When I did some research, I found that they have treated many others in the same way.

On approximately Nov. 17th or 18th, I ordered a "free" credit report on CreditReport.com. It clearly stated there would be a $9.95 charge if I didn't cancel the subscription within 9 days of ordering my free credit report. I received my credit report one day later and immediately cancelled my subscription and received a confirmation email. The next day (2nd day after ordering the free credit report), my account was debited $29.90. When I contacted FreeCreditReport.com, the customer service person stated that there was an outside company that charges a fee of $29.90 when a person orders credit reports from the 3 big companies: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. The customer service person went on to say that I must have approved the charge of $29.90 during the ordering of the free credit report and that they have no control over the fee of other company ConsumerInfo.com charges.
When I asked for contact information, FreeCreditReport.com informed me that they have no contact phone number for them, that is why I didn't provide Consumer Affairs with one. The customer service number for FreeCreditReport.com is 1-877-481-6826. When I first saw the charge on my bank account and immediately called FreeCreditReport.com, they advised that I would have to fax a letter explaining that I was unaware that a charge of $29.90 would be applied to my checking account. I also had to request in my letter that the fee be refunded to me and to cancel my subscription with ConsumerInfo.com. FreeCreditReport.com also advised me that it would take up to 30 days to receive a response (in writing) from ConsumerInfo.com stating their decision.
After waiting for 30 days, I received a letter from ConsumerInfo.com yesterday (12/15/09), stating that they denied my request. I want to know why that is fair that they can take money that obviously wasn't stated during the process of signing up for a free credit report and why ConsumerInfo.com made me wait 30 days when they knew ** well they had no intention of refunding my money? I think they are being very deceptive and I had no idea there was another company (hidden company) involved with FreeCreditReport.com. I am very angry and think this is a ripoff! Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.
I feel that I was wrongly charged as nowhere did I see anything asking me to authorize a charge for $29.90 to my account. I have been back and forth with FreeCreditReport.com and told then that unless it was boldly stated during the sign-up process, then I consider it a hidden charge. They maintain that they have nothing to do with the other company and there is nothing I can do about it. I feel I was ripped off.

I had a friend pay my bills so they wouldn't be late and did not see the charge on that statement. Now, I got my new statement and saw a charge of $14.95.

They said that I marked the box, saying that I would comply with the regulations or whatever. This is a blatant lie! I know better than to ever mark that box. I got stung once before on something like that and when that box comes up, I leave the site.
They said that they would cancel my subscription, but could not refund what they had already gotten. I see that many other customers have been scammed by this same company, in the same manner. I told them that I would put it in dispute with my card company. They said, "Go ahead, we don't care." I have put it in dispute, but have not heard back from my card company. I have written a letter to Consumer Protection. I think it is time that something is done about these practices. I am 83 years old and I know that a lot of old people do not check their statements or do not understand them. If you have been a victim of this scam, please report it to Consumer Protection.

But she could not issued credit and asked me to call back Monday 9-21 and speak to a manager who can issue credits. On Monday, 9/21, I called and spoke with Mike, who refused to help me as he wanted to only speak to my husband, Richard. There was a note on my account from Sunday saying that Autumn had obtained permission from Richard for Credit Report to speak with me (his wife) regarding this cancellation. Still Mike refused and when I asked for his manager, he advised they didn't have one. He continued to refuse to help me and would not transfer me to a director in charge, so I hung up.

On February 18, 2009, I purchased the 3 credit reports and 3 credit scores (Transunion, Experian, Equifax) for $24.90 using my Visa card. For short, it is called "3 plus 3." On May 16, 2009, I called the credit card company to dispute the charges after I noticed the April bill of $12.95 in my credit card statement. I checked back and saw the March bill of $12.95 as well. I was advised to call the vendor (creditreport.com) and clear the matter with them.
Creditreport.com representatives, whom I've talked to (Yes, I called a few times.), said that the bills were nonrefundable. Its current website recently changed, because now, it is offering a free 7-day trial. The monthly monitoring has also increased to $14.95. Back in February 2009, the monthly monitoring was automatically included in the purchase of "3 plus 3." It meant that purchasing the credit report has mandatorily signed me up for monthly monitoring fee, unless I cancel. Why would creditreport.com add further stress or obligation for the consumer to watch for when the whole world is already on such financial turmoil?
What I am trying to say is how can a customer get the time to cancel it when he/she is busy working or looking for a job to pay the bills and put food on the table? Obviously, that is its strategy for the same exact reason--people have no time to call just to cancel, and by the time these people realize it, their credit cards have already been charged and deemed nonrefundable. As a result, the company earned money!
My Visa credit card was charged three (3) times in the amount of $12.95 each for a total of $38.85 (March/April/May 2009). I would like to be refunded, because creditreport.com calculated and deceived each customer, including my self on their sales strategy. I am referring to all customers who purchased prior to the introduction of their renewed website with renewed offer. Thank you.

They charged my credit card without my permission $29.95 for that month and also $1.00 for the four times I went to the website to view my reports. This caused me to have negative reflection on my credit report for my credit card exceeding it's limit and/or showing a high uses when it come to credit card balance. This is the opposite of what their company promises which is to help improve your credit report and credit score! It caused me financial and emotional stress!

This website is for a free credit report. In small writing off to the side it says you will be automatically enrolled if you don't cancel within 30 days. I have been using this site for years and never been charged or enrolled in anything. They have changed the format to automatically enroll people now. I never received any emails confirming this, reporting anything or saying anything was going on with my credit. THERE SHOULD BE AN OPTION TO SAY NO THANKS RATHER THAN THIS SCAM TO AUTOMATICALLY ENROLL. I can't believe they would be allowed to automatically enroll people in order to get a credit report.
I was charged $11.95 for the service that I did not realize I was getting. They refused to refund my money, and when I called the bank to dispute they can't accept a dispute for this because it is in the disclosure--even though it is small print. This is just another way for someone to take advantage of people for trying to do the right thing by monitoring their credit.

Creditreport.com advertises on TV and the Internet that you can get a free credit report + credit score, provided you agree to a 30 day trial of their credit monitoring program. If you dont like the program, you dont get charged, provided you cancel it before the end of the 30 day trial period. If you like the program, your credit card will be billed $9.95 a month afterwards. This sounded like a great deal, so I signed up for a free? credit report + credit score. When I got my VISA bill 8 days later, I noticed I was charged $24.95 for this free? credit report + credit score. I contacted them for an explanation. They told me the credit report + credit score arent free?, despite the fact their website says Get Your FREE Credit Report + Credit Score? on every page where you can sign up for it. They claim I chose to pay $24.95 for this free? credit report + credit score when I clicked on the Submit button. Now, why would I agree to pay $24.95 for a free? credit report + credit score? I never would have clicked on the Submit button if I knew the credit report + credit score werent free?. This is TOTALLY MISLEADING ADVERTISING. Its just a ploy to get people to sign up for their credit monitoring program. I feel that I was deviously charged $24.95 for a free? credit report + credit score without any up-front indication on the website that the free report + credit score werent free?. All TV viewers and Internet users should know about this TOTALLY MISLEADING ADVERTISING.
I was charged $24.95 for a free credit report + free credit score. They won't give me a credit on my VISA card. They said their website clearly indicates that I would be charged $24.95 when I clicked on the Submit button. My IQ is 150. I did not see any such disclosure, and certainly would not have clicked on the Submit button if I knew I was going to be charged $24.95 for a free report.

I saw on their website that I could order a credit report and free score for $19.95. I ordered a report and am now being charged $29.95 as apparently it defaulted to give me 3 scores. In addition, I did not select to pay for credit monitoring but I am being charged for it. I called to have it cancelled and refunded but they refuse to refund the charge saying that it is written in the terms and conditions. I feel I am being deceived and defauded as I did not select to order the credit monitoring and I thought I was purchasing the product for $19.95 not $29.95.
I was overcharged by $19.95 and feel that this company is decieving the public and defrauding people out of money. It may be a small amount for me but when they keep doing this to anyone who signs up it adds up for them.

I ordered a 3 in 1 credit report and upon clicking to retrieve my report, I received a screen that said that my order was processed but there is a problem with online access to your report. I paid for a real time service and if their system is down, it should not allow my order to be processed OR they should have a live person I can speak to who can troubleshoot. They provide an 800 number but no one is available. It's a violation to take someone's money but not provide the service. It appears that their accounting system had no problem charging my credit card but the actual 3-1 credit report that I paid for was completely inaccesible.
Economic damage = $20
Physical damage = aggravation and no peace of mind that keeps me from sleeping because now I don't know if my credit report is correct!

This company provides a free trial of credit monitoring when a credit report is requested. After the month, if you don't call to cancel the trial, they start charging debit/credit card up to $12.95 per month. I am sure this is spelled out in the fine print somewhere, but I know of an elderly women who couldn't grasp this concept and paid for two subscriptions for up to 4 months before she became aware of what was actually happening. THESE PRACTICES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.
Several months of bank charges.

I needed an updated credit report from all 3 bureaus so I went to creditreport.com and ordered their 3 in 1 report for $30.00.
This was followed by being denied viewing my credit report online due to a so called strict authorization policy, which wasn't explained at all.
I did finally get what looked like an incomplete, outdated report in the mail.
That was only the begining however, as I was billed another $34.90 for a creditwatch service to monitor inquiries, etc.
Nowhere on their webpage is there any notice you will be activating a monitoring service.
If you call them on the phone and you get an answering machine, when you do get someone on the phone they seem to have no recollection of your account, then the phone hangs up!
Do not deal with these people at all, completely unprofessional.
The damage can be described as distrust and general disgust with certain online services, buyer beware!
