Scam/fraud | TransUnion

How can you sign up people for a $20/month subscription without an online confirmation of payment page? Like everyone I thought I was just making an account. Slimey, underhanded, and dishonest. Disgusting. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion. Shame on you transunion.

Went to do a credit freeze. Clicked through various links for Transunion and it wanted credit card info; I entered it and submitted and then immediately felt it didn't look right. (It's been a little over a week, so don't exactly remember). I received email stating it...

To lock your credit on Transunion you must sign up on their website, afterward you see that you also sign up for credit monitoring for $19.95 per month. You call their website, and there is an explanation how to back out. However, you learn that you have signed up for...

Somehow TransUnion has a back door which if you pay them the $1 for a credit report they (without your direct consent) start charging you almost $20 per month for monitoring services. This is a bait and switch tactic and is dishonest and boarders on outright fraud. I...

So what you’re saying is you didn’t read the T&C and instead just clicked that “I agree” button without a second thought. Good to know that you’re so important and so busy that you refuse to protect yourself by reading!! You did this to yourself by not reading and somehow magically it’s someone else’s fault.

Just cancelled credit monitoring service is a big joke and misleading. They get 17.95 a month to send you an automated email a couple times a month if that. If you call up you cant hardly understand them for the broken english they speak. Waste of money to have this service.

Theft of money for credit monitoring I never ordered | TransUnion in Herndon, Virginia

I ordered my credit report five months ago and just noticed that Transunion was billing me like $17 per month for credit monitoring. I never heard anything from them the whole time. They are basically just stealing my money. I cancelled but couldn't get a refund. iwv weuiv wuie vuiwe vuiwe vuiwe vw vvwe w evw ev wv wv ev we vwe evwev wv weuiv wuie vwuie vuiwe vuiw evwe vweui we w evui wevwe uiv weuiv wevwui vwev wev wev wv we vwe vw ev wev vweuiv we vuiwe vui wev wev weuive vweui vwv weuiv we vwe vuiwe vwe v wev
