Re: New Credit Score Website

Hopefully it's out of Beta mode very soon. I think it's awesome and well worth the cost!

Re: New Credit Score Website

Since I am an IT Network Security person during the day, I decided to check this site against our Content Filtering Service which is provided by Blue Coat Systems.

 

Blue Coat lists this site as a Financial site, so it looks pretty good. Blue Coat is really good about filtering out the scammers...

Re: New Credit Score Website

Thanks! i guess the issue isn't so much if its a legit site (well that is a big factor), but moreso if it's secure from hackers. I don't need any identity theft!

Re: New Credit Score Website

Question for the IT Gurus:   If this new site is legit, shouldn't they have asked for or solicited people to beta test their application?

 

I don't see an indication of this on their "web page".   One other question I have is will they be able to handle the traffic from all

the credit score junkies?  :smileyvery-happy::smileyvery-happy:

Re: New Credit Score Website

Theorhetically yes.  From what people are saying it looks like they did beta test it silently a while back by just not charging people.

 

The proper way to do it is not develop the site live and keep the beta closed initially, then slowly roll it out.

Re: New Credit Score Website

I'm so hoping this site will be up and running someday.  It will be a great benefit to consumers.  I'm just afraid that there are some very powerful forces lined up to make sure that this doesn't happen.

Re: New Credit Score Website

I tried (even thought it states it is in beta testing) to sign up for the service but when I submitted the information nothing ever generated : (.  I can't wait to try the service.  Figured I would post on this thread so I can be notified of updates.
