Due to a settlement from a class action lawsuit where they were accussed of reselling personal and financial consumers information for marketing purposes, Transunion is offering free credit monitoring. Selling the information is a violation of Fair Credit Reporting Act. You only have until September 24, 2008 to apply for your benefit of either free credit monitoring or possibly a cash payment.
You are eligible if you have had credit from January 1, 1987 until May 28, 2008. This includes mortgage loans, credit cards, auto loans, student loans…if you’ve had credit over the past 21 years, this is worth checking out!
Here are your choices:
- Sign up for six months of credit monitoring services. If you select this option, you can also register to possibly receive cash benefits in the event of a cash distribution or file an individual lawsuit against the Defendants.
- Sign up for nine months of enhanced credit monitoring services. If you select this option, you will not receive any further benefits, including a cash payment, and you will not be able to file an individual lawsuit against the Defendants.
- Register to possibly receive a cash payment. If you select this option, you can also sign up for six months of credit monitoring; however if you receive a cash payment, you cannot file an individual lawsuit against the Defendants.
Of course you can always chose to do nothing!
You can call TransUnion’s settlement number at (866) 416-3470 or visit the website: www.listclassaction.com to file your claim.
It’s about time these Trigger Leads came to an end!
