Consumers to be Credited $20m for Online Credit Report Scheme
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the states of Illinois and Ohio secured the consumer redress as part of a settlement of charges against One Technologies and will return almost $20 million to more than 145,000 consumers across the country, who were victimized by the company and its affiliates, in an online scheme that lured consumers with “free” access to their credit scores through MyCreditHealth and ScoreSense. It then billed them an undisclosed recurring $29.95 monthly fee for credit monitoring they never ordered. The websites included FreeScore360.com, FreeScoreOnline.com, and ScoreSense.com.
