Credit Monitoring companies not inspiring confidence...

Just in the last week I've had all kinds of weirdness happen with my credit monitoring/ daily puller accounts.

 

MyPrivacyMatters through EliminateIDTheft has locked me out of my account because they can't figure out how to charge certain credit cards. I called customer service and was told, very nonchalantly, that their system has problems processing MasterCard, AMEX, and/or anyone with Hotmail accounts. So, I gave them a VISA card, they said thanks, hung up and I'm still locked out. And they don't seem to answer ANY emails. Worst customer service ever. Call 'em and see.

 

USAA errored out continuously over the last couple of days. No explanation; no one knows why.

 

CITI charged me twice for an account that they can't seem to locate.

 

All my cards and accounts check out fine. I'm not sure what kinda karma backlash this is. And no, I'm not a hardcore puller, I don't pull for *B* or anything similar, and I don't have a lot going on with my reports. Anyone experiencing anything similar??

From what Ive been reading, I'd say something is fishy about EliminateIdtheft...im scared of any system that is not automated, too much opportunity for a human to screw up, or screw u up...

      Hello all,
       
      I am wondering if anyone else has experience/advice to offer on this predicament. I have 6 cards, listed below for reference:
       
      Bank of America Cash Rewards Visa Sig $10k/9.99 (6/2010)
      Citi Diamond Preferred MasterCard $10.2k/11.99 (10/2012)
      Chase Freedom Visa Sig $10k/15.24 (1/2012) (Call in to the EO about reducing the APR, given how much I spend, good luck to me though with Chase's stubbornness)
      Amex BCE $12.6k/10.24 (9/2011)
      Barclay Ring MC $5k/8.0 (4/2012)
      Discover IT $19k/11.99 (9/2012) (Yes, subprime Discover loves to give me $4-5k soft pull increases every few months!)
       
      Anyway, the Diamond Preferred is a good "backup" MC to keep in my wallet in case a purchase gets declined on a Visa card. I would like to have the World benefits, and mainly, I want it because there's no reason with my profile, limits, etc... for me to not have it (I had a Dividend card I closed because I got mad at Citi two years ago, which had a lower limit and was still a World card).
       
      I've seen some people meet success just requesting a World card via phone (as I did with my previous card), but this time I am having no luck.
       
      I've called the regular numbers, and even the EO & Twitter. When I find someone who even understands what I'm asking, they just start rattling off a list of annual-fee carrying airline cards I can convert to that are World cards. They've also told me you can only get offered the upgrade, which just doesn't sit right with what else I've seen. My conclusion is that Citi is pushing World/Sig away on no-AF cards, as it seems like anything without an AF (TY Preferred Visa, DP Visa, Simplicity Visa), is marketed as a regular Visa, while the AF cards are marketed as Sig cards.
       
      Does anyone have an idea as to what I can do? Can I convert to a Dividend card if it isn't offered anymore? Is there anything I could do to get this converted to a World card?
       
      Thanks,
      A very frustrated smc733

      My 350th Post!!
       
      Final step for the DW for 2014. Approved for $13K on their 11.99% Diamond Preferred, HP on EQ.
       
      Her Scores:
       
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
       
      Over the last fourteen day app spree, she's scored:
       
      AMEX EDC - $9,400 to $28,200
      NFCU Flagship - $10,000
      NASA Visa - $13,000
      BECU - $25,000
      BOA - $8,200 > $16,400
      USAA - $16,000
      Citi - $13,000
       
      For a total of $104,000 in new credit!
       
      She did apply for a second NFCU card, that's still under review.
       
      Off to the garden till next year for some CLI requests. (I know, a lot of GIF's, just celebratin' a little , ok, a lot! )

      So, when I signed up for MyFICO recently I didn't actually read , so didn't realize I'd only be getting one 3-in-1 report per year. Not acceptable, but totally on me
       
      So, I poke around CB per usual when I have a credit related question and eventually stumble across BW's Master How to Sign up for USAA CreditCheck Monitoring Premium (CCMP) Thread. Cool.
       
      I follow along his steps and, after entering my SSN the site returns a message asking me to confirm that I am [NAME REDACTED]. Now here's the "funny" part - the name they showed was my birth name, which I haven't used (and hasn't been on my Social Security card, credit reports or ANYthing else) in over two decades!
       
      Clearly, I think, they're connecting to some bizarre, totally outdated database. But I soldier on (so to speak), confirming that I am, indeed this person and managed to get signed up.
       
      After checking out my reports and learning my way around the CCMP site I return to the USAA site and notice that I actually entered my address wrong. So, I go to change it and, after entering the correct info and clicking next, the site informs me that it can't change info for MY MOTHER because we live at a different addresses. Now, I haven't spoken to my mother almost a decade and I certainly didn't enter her name anywhere at USAA or CCMP, (other than her maiden name as requested, but the name they posted back to me was her (third) married name) so I'm compleely flumoxed.
       
      I poke around a little more and it seems I not only signed up for CCMP, but also managed to join USAA, which I thought was impossible for me. My father was in the Air Force and the Navy, but I haven't spoken him since the day I graduated from high school in 1987, so I would have no idea any of his relevant required info. My maternal grandfather was also in the Navy, but he died over 20 years ago, so again, I have no access to his info.
       
      Yet, alas, I've somehow not only (literally) stumbled into USAA membership, but my account has somehow been created under a name that is no longer legally mine and been connected to my estranged mother's account.
       
      DO things get any more bizarre?

      Well, one more step for the DW. Approved for $16K on their Rate Advantage Platinum MasterCard, HP on EQ.
       
      Her Scores:
       
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
       
      Over the last twelve days, she's scored:
       
      AMEX EDC - $9,400 to $28,200
      NFCU Flagship - $10,000
      NASA Visa - $13,000
      BECU - $25,000
      BOA - $8,200 > $16,400
      USAA - $16,000
       
      For a total of $91,000 in new credit!
       
      I think this evening she'll apply for a second NFCU and a Citi card, then off to the garden!
       
       

       
    • By I don't even...
      Has any one else noticed CCMP's questionable math? I get that they are counting all revolving accounts as both Retail and Bank cards, but how does 5+1=7 or 1+4=6? Any ideas? Any one else with similar results?
       

       
      Edit: grammar &c.
