Yesterday I wrote about the recent TransUnion class action settlement. In short, if you had a credit card, loan, or credit account in the last 21 years, you qualify and can get free credit monitoring, credit scores, or money. Well, guess what? There’s another settlement out there kicking around. As a result of Townes v. TransUnion, LLC and TrueLink, Inc., you can get 3 months of free credit monitoring if you used either of these services between December 1, 1999 and April 16, 2007. To qualify, you just have to submit an “Authentication Form” by July 22, 2008. This can be done either electronically or via mail.
In case you’re curious, the suit alleges that TransUnion violated the Credit Repair Organizations Act (“CROA”) in the course of the marketing and sales of their credit score and credit repair products. Once again, TransUnion denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to this settlement to bring an end to the litigation.
