    That site screams sketchy, looks like a data miner. Check out the bogus testimonies that precede the date the domain was registered, not to mention the incomplete pages and scammy endorsements.

    Oh, I just got a credit report from them... Do you think the report is real? It's extremely detailed and even have my address and all my info.

    Well... you put in your address and personal information so of course they'd be able to show that. I'd wager that it's a fake report.

    Since the website was created today, where did you even hear about it?

    Personally, I suggest going directly through Equifax or Transunion so your information doesn't get passed through middlemen.

    See my thread for instructions (it's free and easy): http://www.forumvancouver.com/threa...rt-in-canada-from-equifax-and-transunion.178/

    I saw it in the local copy of 24 newspaper

    I submitted some fake information with a disposable email address and it just said "Submission Received". In fact, the data is being collected using a nube HTML form builder: http://www.jotform.com/

    The confirmation email that they send after doesn't even come from the correct domain.
    Btw, I see that you've posted this site on RFD and Revscene, so I'm starting to think that this is your scam site. If it's not then I highly suggest that you contact the police and let the credit bureaus know that your personal information was stolen.

    The website sent me a message saying I can get free service for a year if I link people to it.

    My information is stolen? What can I do to get it back?

    ^Report the site to the police and explain the situation. They appear to have an Identity Theft Unit (ITU) that probably deals with phishing sites like this.

    Use the VPD non-emergency number: (604) 717-3321.

    Here is some information on identity theft: http://www.priv.gc.ca/fs-fi/02_05_d_10_e.cfm

    You should get proper credit reports from both Equifax and Transunion (see my linked thread above) and monitor for anything suspicious.
