FTC Amends Free Credit Reports Rule To Help Consumers Steer Clear of ‘Free’ Offers that Cost Money

Posted on March 10, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“Starting April 2, advertising for “free credit reports” will require new disclosures to help consumers avoid confusing “free” offers – which often require consumers to spend money on credit monitoring or other products or services – with the no-strings-attached credit reports available at AnnualCreditReport.com, or 877-322-8228.”

You know the “misleading” television ad they are referring to, the one with the crazy guy playing the guitar.  Starting April 1st, these ads will have to have a disclosure that you can go to www.annualcreditreport.com  to get that truly FREE credit report !  I am very glad to see the government finally address this issue.
