A Chance for Free Credit Monitoring

"If you opened a credit card account, got a car loan or mortgage or used any other line of credit in the past 20 years, you may be eligible for free credit monitoring for up to nine months because of a recent class action lawsuit settlement with TransUnion, one of the three major credit-reporting bureaus...

Under the $75 million settlement, TransUnion will provide free credit monitoring... plus the ability to block third parties from viewing your credit history. You qualify if you had an open credit account or an open line of credit from a registered subscriber with a credit bureau between Jan. 1, 1987, and May 28, 2008.

You can choose from two options—six months of credit monitoring valued at nearly $60 and the possibility of getting an additional cash settlement, or nine months valued at $115, which has more services but disqualifies you from a cash settlement.

To receive either, register before Sept. 24 at or call 1-866-416-3470 toll free."

Sorry Mike. . Unless you want to take your chances with
"Vinnie", you're pretty much out of luck. Your credit is the most important tool used when getting a home loan. There is no way around it. . There are programs for people with bad will just have to deal with a horrendously high interest rate.. Check with your local mortgage brokers and I'm sure someone will be able to help you.. Good luck and God Bless!
