    Check My Credit File..? 6th Oct 17 at 8:42 AM
    Just seen an advert on TV for this company...whilst ive no interest in giving them 14.99 a month,what im curious about is they state See your data* from 4 Credit Reference Agencies, not just 1.

    So who is the fourth CRA...??

    Looked for the * on there site and couldn't find any reference to that.

    How come no mentions them...always thought there was three CRA"s.

    Or are they just a rehash like Noddle etc.
