As reported on MSNBC...The Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday released two videos that spoof the popular FreeCreditReport.com commercials and their trademark catchy tunes.
FreeCreditReport.com is owned by credit bureau Experian, which has been engaged in a decades-long battle with the Federal Trade Commission over alleged misbehavior. Most recently, in 2005, the FTC settled charges with the firm that it intentionally misled customers with its FreeCreditReport.com Web site. The FTC said in its lawsuit that the company was confusing consumers who were looking for their congressionally mandated free annual peek at their credit reports. Experian agreed to refund customers, but admitted no wrongdoing.
And yet the commericals still air?
