I recently purchased what I thought was a copy of my ‘free’ (or $1 for processing) credit report. I thought I recognized the name ‘Experian’ and that they were a reputable company. There was a question about whether or not I wanted copies of the other 2 credit bureau report; I checked ‘no’. When I checked my bank account online a couple of days later, to my surprise, I found a ‘recurring’ charge of $19.95!! Not only that, but my account was overdrawn (I am on Disability and live on less than $1000/mo). I quickly called the number on the statement, and got a voice mail saying only, “We are not in; leave us a message”. I looked them up online and called another number. The representative informed me that I had joined while online, but they would consider dropping the rate to $9.95/mo. She did allow me to cancel (from what I’ve heard from others, they often do not), but I was still broke and owed my bank overdraft fees; and it was 2 weeks until my next check! When I got online and found out how many people have been ‘duped’ by this unscrupulous company it really made me angry; and I felt I needed to write something to someone who might have the power to do something about it. Thank-you ps, I used a Debit Card .
