Re: the monthly fee isnt that bad :)

I got this too (my mortgage servicing was sold to Wells Fargo).


This is one of many similar offers, the scores offered are FAKO scores, not used by any lender, so similar to what you can get for free from CK/CS/QZ etc.  These offers differ mainly on price and how often you can access the credit reports (ignore scores!).  I didn't study my email much, so I don't know if this is towards the good or bad end of the spectrum.    But I always wary of lenders promoting this type of service, it's just a revenue generator and they already get enough from my mortgage!
