“Starting April 2, advertising for “free credit reports” will require new disclosures to help consumers avoid confusing “free” offers – which often require consumers to spend money on credit monitoring or other products or services – with the no-strings-attached credit reports available at AnnualCreditReport.com, or 877-322-8228.”

You know the “misleading” television ad they are referring to, the one with the crazy guy playing the guitar. Starting April 1st, these ads will have to have a disclosure that you can go to www.annualcreditreport.com to get that truly FREE credit report ! I am very glad to see the government finally address this issue.
