    I have seen this posted at various boards and something seems off about it.

    Looks like a new version of a "" site pulling from your EQF file. I wonder if Equifax would verify they're a third party supplier or if all the reports you pull would show up as hard inqs.

    It's a small website with only about 8 pages or so. It has no security features at all, and you can just pull up any page on the entire site, so I'd be a bit leery of giving them any info at all, even a sign up info sheet most websites have.

    Did you notice the colored gal in the last photo on the front page?
    They stole that photo. That gal as become about as famous as Marilyn Monroe for being seen everywhere. Not much info on any of their pages and I pulled up all of the pages on the website except their member login sheet with no problem at all.

    Most properly secured sites have some pages they don't let you into when you aren't a member. This site lets you pull up any and all pages on the entire site. All you have to do is find them and that's no biggie if you have the right software that can spider any site and come up with every page on it.

    Not a great site by any means.

    And pray tell what is wrong with stating the fact that the gal in the picture (regardless of race, creed, national origin or political or religious affiliations) has been touted on a very large number of websites around the internet and that the picture was most likley filched from some other website?

    Nothing... did I say it was? I just said that your description of her was not very politically correct.

    Yeah, I looked at that too. Look in the source for the explanation...That page is not a true 'static' homepage, it is dynamicaly created by a script. They are parsing PHP in the HTML through a CGI script. The quick tip off is the Header and Footer PERL (.epl) scripts. <!--- is a pretty standard format for 'clean' coders to demark borders between static and dynamic page parts. Looks like they are throwing a dynamic header and footer around a static HTML body.

    I am guessing the data in blue (build, etc) is telling the compilation info on the page to make it easier to report errors...kinda weird.

    If you try to log in it switches to SSL, thats a good

    The programmer obviously has a sense of humor. Note his tag line at the end of the code....

    <! your server is cartman
    please tip well >

    They are a Incorporated in Delaware (who isn't) according to

    They are valid through Verisign

    Here is an article about them

    Who knows if they are any good, but I think they are legit (really, Breeze, I mean it this time...)

    Hope this helps!

    They pull Equifax- soft inquiry.

    You get 4 a year for 16.95.

    You can quit for a FULL refund up to the first 6 months.

    I just signed up...checking it out.

    I figure I'll get my free report and look around at the lender info, can always quit and get a full refund.

    Nice Calculators!

    I like yesterdays a little better but this ones pretty good too.


    Guys- is pretty good. Four reports for 17.00 is pretty good if you are in a state that has to pay for reports.

    The calculators are great! You can get to those for free in the 'learning center'. The refi calc is one of the best online (no download) one I have seen.

    I think there are better options for montoring your report, but it does seem to have a neat feature. It looks like you can submit your 'digital profile' (credit report, etc) saved on the site to a lot of different lenders for quotes/approval info WITHOUT actually submitting an app for inquiry.

    Now, THAT might be worth the $17.00

    I'm still checking it out....
