“Giving wrong info to the banks”

Written on: 27/04/2012 by monkey80 (1 review written)

1 star is too many to give, it should be big fat 0! I have recently applied for a basic bank account (yes, my credit is bad) and I have been declined because experian said to the bank that I am not registered in my electoral. I am, 2 days ago I have received a letter to vote and have even called my coucil to check if there is a mistake on their side. Looks like experian doesn't care that they ruin people's lives!!! stay away and appeal with your bank and asked them to use different credit… Read Full Review

“Naughty, Naughty Experian!”

Written on: 23/04/2012 by jasoncooke93 (43 reviews written)

See my Equifax review for the sheer hassle experienced trying to clean up defaults on my credit file that were added in error. Experian were a bit better on the support front, at least they pick up the phone in the UK. It doesn't get much better though... I worked tirelessly for 5 months to get 2 incorrect defaults removed from my Experian credit file (approx 20 phone calls, 15 emails, 10 letters) and having been fixed 'Satisfied' for about 7 days, it reverted back to show an outstanding… Read Full Review

“scam”

Written on: 21/04/2012 by parsnip12 (1 review written)

I recently joined Experian .co.uk and got a credit score of 811 according to experian that is good, so i decided as i dont have a credit card i would apply for one and use the company experian recommend in their what card is good for you section. So you can understand how i felt when i was declined for a card and note saying if you have been declined write to experian and get a copy of your credit report. WHAT is the point of being a member and doing what they recommend when it does not… Read Full Review

“Price Gone up!!!! Stay away!!!”

Written on: 16/04/2012

Normally I don't leave reviews but this time I thought I should really let others know how I feel. I just got One line for all of you out there "Stay away from experian's online credit report service". The price has gone up from £6.99 to £15.99 for some reason. So don't bother instead order the £2 paper copy of your report… Read Full Review

“Rubbish and misleading”

Written on: 11/04/2012 by laurieannuk (1 review written)

I went in to renew my membership - I guessed that I wouldn't get the free trial again - and got a shock when I saw it was £14.99! This looks to have doubled in price over the past few years. Not only that, but at least £6.60 of this is for an insurance that I do not want or need - and you can't remove it. I thought I would e-mail them for some feedback and couldn't find any contact details where I could send a free text e-mail on the site - just go into categories that did not apply. It… Read Full Review

“Rip-Off!”

Written on: 25/03/2012

No answers from the poorly trained staff. Promises of call backs 6 times and no one ever has. Clean report from their website but finance companies are seeing something different. What is the point of a report for the user and different one for the finance companies. I actually had fraudulent activity on my history which had been marked as such. I had to get a financial institution to do it as experian claimed they could not. Their reports never indicated any of the information. Total… Read Full Review

“Milk&more”

Written on: 22/03/2012

I was amazed to find that my application to Milk&more - the online system for dealing with my milkman - was declined because of Experians assessment of my application details!! What next - Experian stopping me breathing in air? I guess I'll just have to go back to the traditional method of ordering things by note paper and paying by cheque… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2012

Hi, I joined credit expert (experian) in the first week of january 2012 as advised by a high street bank to obtain a credit report. I sent my credit report to the bank who then asked me to add a notice of correction to my credit file so they can put in a request for me to obtain a mortgage. Upon registering I found that my credit score was being affected by a default which I incurred whilst at university and my current credit card balance, I cleared my credit card balance and the score… Read Full Review

“Financial Scam ”

Written on: 16/02/2012 by Scamhunter (1 review written)

Credit experts gives wrong advise totally opposite to the bank suggestion. Make unacceptable excuses to take the rating down. Its look like we buy the credit score. They ask me to be a member with a payment of 15 pounds a month, Gave me a good score when i decided to cancel the membership they downgraded my score with no reasons. Absolutely Scam. Trading standard has to jump in… Read Full Review

“Disappointing and disgusting”

Written on: 16/12/2011 by Disgusting (1 review written)

When you decide to cancel membership with this company (within a few days of registering) they only give you £6 membership back and not your full £14.99. They took the full money out of my bank account straightaway but will take 5 days to put the poorly insurance sum of £6 back. Appalling company, rude staff, I have nothing good to say about this company. Unbelievable to think they can treat customers like this… Read Full Review

That sounds like an insurance cooling off - you wouldn't get the full amount for the membership as you would have used other features they provide. Because you're no longer covered for insurance you've paid for, they'll return that sum to you.

“Same old story apparently!”

As everyone else on this website, I tried their "free" credit report membership and later been charged! As we had been refused a credit card and didn't think of the reason, we wanted to check our credit report for free!! One company stating a false late payment! After the issue was resolved within the free membership time limit, we called them to cancel. We received an email of acknowledgement but two months later (not one month!), they charged us for the full membership of £14.99! They now… Read Full Review

“Experian needs to be stopped!!!”

Written on: 26/09/2011

Till when is an agency that has the worst scoring system, the most inaccurate held info, and the most unfair scores and reports, going to be allowed to lead the opinion of creditors and lenders and their decisions? We're 10 persons, all with no debts, no late payments, no CCJ's and some of us are on the electoral register, others aren't. All 10 of us applied to check our scores with them, they have the lowest scoring system, we all had to stay with them after the free trial just to correct… Read Full Review

“Experian - High Class Loan Sharks”

Written on: 21/07/2011

I have found to my detriment that this company is set up purely as a front to offer customers high interest loans. Their TV advert states that it is free to review your credit repoprt this is a lie. Their whole website is set up to make money out of you, you can only see your report after you have given them your card details why? you cannot cancel the monthly payment unless you call a certain number and be subjected to a load of sales patter about the wonders of paying for their service why?… Read Full Review

I joined them over a year ago but it took them 2 months to send out my pin. I was told that I would receive a refund for my first months payment in lue of the free charge guess what I'm still waiting for it!!!

I rang to cancel my membership as it suddenly was 14.99 a month instead of 7.99 a month when I orginally signed up btw I wasn't told of this change or opt into anything. At this point I mentioned the refund I have never received, I was told that that would happen and after being given a list of reasons to stay with them I finally got off the phone.

I still haven't received a refund and was told it takes up to 10 days because of the banks (haven't all major banks just introduced faster payments??) I asked to speak to the major at which point I was told our manager isn't available and we can get her to call you back in 24 hours which would mean 2pm on sat (they close at 1pm) bet I don't get a call back or my refund!!

“Bad experiance”

Written on: 20/07/2011

Was directed to Experian to get a copy of credit report by my bank. Virtually impossible to get a contact phone number from the website, when I did (had to call my bank to get the number) they sent me to the website. To get a copy of my credit report I had to sign in to the free trial and then had to phone them again to go through the whole process. I decided to cancel the request midway through the process of attempting to retrieve the copy held by them. As I had submitted my card details and… Read Full Review

“I need protection from them”

Written on: 15/06/2011 by MW22 (1 review written)

I got a Credit Alert and followed the link. Logged in correctly but was told that there was a problem and I should try later. If I wanted I could phone or fax them at a cost of 5p per minute. I tried to log in later and found myself taken strait to the report I'd purchased a few months ago. Apart from the shock of getting there without any security check I tried to check the Alerts - Could not BUT I could edit my personal information. They say they have 28 days to respond to my complaint… Read Full Review

“The credit expert service is awesome. it's an awesome...”

Written on: 16/05/2011 by fencemaster (4 reviews written)

The credit expert service is awesome. it's an awesome example of how to initially sell a relatively useless service and - importantly - how to ensure your hapless customers keep paying for it month after month.

Credit Expert has great marketing and a superb website that is easy to use and secure. However, you'll find that the 'free trial' is worthless, you'll find Credit Expert has your credit card details (they HAD to have these details for YOUR SECURITY of course!) you'll find your credit… Read Full Review
