I too get these e-mails constantly. Three or four a week, easily. General lesson: don't EVER get out information on any of your accounts over e-mail to these guys. Horrible stuff.

Ladies, here is link to get a free credit report from each of three credit rating companies...if you space out when you request the reports, you can monitor your credit throughout the year. You can retrieve one free report per year from each company.

I retrieved one of mine and I could believe how many companies has actually requested my info...I guess that's how I end up with so much credit card junk mail.
^This really scares me - are the credit companies giving your info to the companies requesting it? I didn't think they were allowed to unless you authourize them to.
