  • No, you get a free credit report with a trial subscription to their thingy. It's up to YOU to cancel before the trial runs out. Read the fine print, it's there for a reason.

  • Because they provide the credit report for free AFTER you sign up for the service. You are paying for the service, not the report. Snarky, yes, but not illegal.

  • Because it says "offer applies with enrollement and triple advantage"

    as long as the ad says SOMEWHERE, it is not illegal.

  • Kaceesmom is right. Freecreditreport is not free as such but the site she gave is. I did mine just last week. You will have to pay for your FICO score if you want it though. Also you have to go to each credit company seperately and fill out the pertinant info.
