AMERICAN'S - Get a TRULY FREE Copy of each of your Credit Reports EVERY Year!!
I JUST saw this on:
Did you (American’s) know that you are entitled to
each of the 3 nationwide credit reporting companies—
once every 12 months????
THANX to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA -
They (the Federal Trade Commission - FTC) said they did that because they had received LOTS of complaints from consumers who thought they were ordering their free annual credit report, and yet couldn't get it without paying fees or buying other services. TV ads, email offers, or online search results may tout "free" credit reports, but there is only one authorized source for a truly free credit report.
CALL: 1-877-322-8228, or
MAIL: Fill out the Annual Credit Report Request form and mail it to Annual Credit Report Request Service, P.O. Box 105281, Atlanta, GA 30348-5281.
HINT!!: No matter how you request your report, you have the option to request all 3 reports at once or to order one report at a time.
BUT - by requesting the reports separately, you can monitor your credit more frequently throughout the year.” (hmmmm - sounds like a VERY wise idea - so you can monitor anything you're trying to clean up!!)
BUT . . . NOTE!!!!
So they obviously were reading my IP address showing I was online in Costa Rica so they said I’d have to write them for it.
I haven’t been able to contact them directly yet to see what us living abroad can do but will send them an email.
