As I read the info at http://classactionamerica.com/cases/goldInfo.asp?lngCaseId=2973&intCategoryID=4 - this suit applies ONLY to Illinois residents.
"A statewide class action has been filed in Illinois against credit giant Experian Information Services as a result of allegedly fraudulent activities revolving around Experian's offer of free credit reports through its consumerinfo.com website. According to consumers, the offer a "free" credit report is, in fact, a scam to get consumers to sign up for Experian's $79.95 CreditCheck service. The action is brought on behalf of all residents of the state of Illinois who, since November 5, 2000, utilized Experian's offer for a free credit report by entering their credit card or debit card information, and who were charged for Experian's CreditCheck service as a result and have not received a full refund of charges for this service.
The action is brought under Illinois consumer protection statutes and seeks unspecified compensatory damages, injunctive and declaratory relief as well as disgorgement of all profits and compensation obtained by the defendants through their alleged fraudulent activities.
I think somebody needs to file a nationwide suit.
