The FTC warned the following sites that they are in violation of improper disclosure of the FACT that Free Credit Reports are available at www.annualcreditreport.com with no strings attached.

Some of these sites are being warned because of affiliate traffic. Affiliates are companies that push traffic to these companies for a commission. I talked to Jeff Barlett at ConsumerTrak and he confirmed my suspicions. Nether less the FTC is watching out for any violators to make sure the consumer is protected and aware of where to go for a free credit report.
