The FTC Strikes Back At Not-FreeCreditReport.com

Since FreeCreditReport.com is not free, is sponsored by Experian, and pays The Martin Agency a gazillion dollars to flood the airwaves, the FTC decided to strike back by promoting AnnualCreditReport.com, the service that legitimately lets you access a free credit report per year from each of the Big 3 credit services.

I’m guessing the FTC’s budget is a little lower.
