This is the url from Roy that I hit and got all the worries with... see letter above.


I inserted spaces so it won't show up as a link when I quote you.

A previous reply pointed out Roy's typo; he should have typed:

http://www.annualcreditreport.com/

Note that the real URL has two n's in "annual" and the typo mis-spells it as "anual". Sounds like some scamsters registered a common typo domain and are trying to make a buck off you.

Slimy, slimy, slimy. And it appears to have been taken down, since I get a "not found" error on the one-n site now.

Of course, you still have to be careful with the real site. There will be plenty of ads trying to sell you services you may not want.

Last year I was able to get my three free credit reports, and I paid for one FICO score. It's about time to do that again, and I don't know whether I want to pay for the numerical score this time.
