FREE Credit Reports for Maryland Residents

Save Money--Read my review of Vonage Digital Voice Internet Phone Company

Did you know that Maryland residents qualify for an absolutely free credit report from the credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian,TransUnion). This also applies to residents of CO, GA, MD, MA, NJ, VT. Just call the agencies and request your free report--you are allowed one report from each agency every year:

EquiFax: 1-800-685-1111 (credit file is free, credit score is not)
Experian: 1-888-397-3742 (be careful to dial this one correctly it is 888 not 800)
TransUnion 1-800-888-4213
(skip past the first free options and listen specifically for them to mention free reports for Marylanders)

While you are at it, write to the following addresses to get your name taken off of telemarketing lists. The letter should state your name, address and telephone number. After you are placed on these no-call lists, companies who call you anyway can be fined big (see the Direct Marketing Association website):

Mail Preference Service
Direct Marketing Association
P.O. Box 9008
Farmingdale, NY 11735

Telephone Preference Service
Direct Marketing Association
P.O. Box 9014
Farmingdale, NY 11735

You may also want to call this telephone number to request opt out from mailing lists generated by Credit reporting companies.1- 888-567-8688.

Finally, you'll want to remove yourself from Acxiom's database.

You may also want to visit this website: It provides the same tones that telezapper uses to make telemarketing dialers think your number is disconnected. Just add them to the begining of your answering machine message.
