The Washington Post reports:
- If you watch television, chances are you've seen the jingles where the young guy sings a campy song about his troubles with identity theft, in a bid to pitch a site called freecreditreport.com.
- Well, now the Federal Trade Commission is getting in on the act, running a series of hilarious public service announcements to point out that such services often are not free at all, and instead pointing consumers to annualcreditreport.com, a site mandated by Uncle Sam and probably the only place online consumers can truly go to get a free copy of their credit reports from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus.
