Because of Ben Stein’s ad on TV, I went to the site for Freescore.com. After all, he said you could see your three credit scores for free.
Well, that’s true – and it’s not true. You pay a $1.00 processing fee for your trial membership. Not a big deal so far. Except that you have to give them your credit card information for the $1.00.
However, if you don’t cancel your membership within 20 days by certified mail, you will be charged $29.95 a month for your membership.
Not an outright lie, but a serious bending of the truth. Moral of the story is: Read the fine print – all the way through.
