Triple-Bureau Reports and Scores

There are numerous complaints against both FreeScore and it parent company for billing customers for services which were previously cancelled.
Vertrue (FreeScore's parent company) has been restructured in a different state after multiple reports of billing practice abuse.
FreeScore is not free at all and the scores which are given are "for educational purposes only" and not the same scores which lenders use in making credit decisions.
Website and customer service representatives for FreeScore are not transparent when interacting with prospective and current customers.
Canceling membership is difficult and not always effective.
Vertrue has a history of abusing customer's credit card information and repeatedly billing after customers cancel their subscriptions.
The Bottom Line
It is better for customers to avoid doing business with FreeScore and Vertrue since they have multiple complaints against them and have issues with limitations and transparency.
