5:10 am
scammers see an opportunity. according to the federal trade commission -- there are a few easy ways to spot a credit repair scam. first -- if the company asks for payment before they render any services. also-- if they ask that you do not contact the credit reporting agencies directly. and if they suggest giving false information when applying for a mortgage or a loan. another troubling trend among credit repair scammers -- the promise of an entirely new credit identity -- which can unwittingly land a consumer in trouble with the law. you can spot these scams when a service suggests abandoning a social security number as a primary source of identification. and instead using a new number they assign and call a c-p-n -- for credit privacy number or credit profile number. in many cases -- these numbers are stolen social security numbers -- often from children -- which is why they have a clean credit slate. and that can turn a consumer into an unknowing identity thief -- despite their good financial intentions. >> that was mary maloney reporting.
