~ Access to Updated Personal Credit Profile, Timely Email Alerts,
TORONTO, June 24 /CNW/ -- Global credit and information management leader
TransUnion today announced an enhanced consumer service that enables Canadians
to tailor their own personalized credit management regimen. Credit Monitoring
Unlimited, available starting today, provides Canadian consumers with both the
peace of mind of a timely email alert when a key change is made to their
credit profile and the flexibility to access and review their own updated
profile and score as often as they see fit over the course of a year.
"Part of handling your finances responsibly these days involves finding
your own credit management comfort zone," said Tom Reid, director, Consumer
Solutions at TransUnion.ca. "For some that translates into checking their
credit profile and score every month to help guard against fraud, while for
others it may mean doing it multiple times each week as they work to get
themselves into financial shape to buy a home or automobile. Either way, that
flexibility now exists with Credit Monitoring Unlimited."
Credit Monitoring Unlimited, by TrueCredit(C), is available as a
stand-alone subscription service for $14.95 CAN per month and provides:
-- Timely Email Alerts: Subscribers receive an email notification,
typically within 24-hours of a key change to their credit profile. This can
help detect potential signs of fraud or identity theft and enable them to
quickly and easily determine the nature of the activity -- new inquiry, new
account, late payment or other -- and take any appropriate steps. Subscribers
can choose to receive either a weekly or monthly "all clear" email during
periods when no changes have occurred on their profile.
-- Unlimited Credit Profile & Score Access: Subscribers can access their
updated credit profile and credit score on a daily, weekly, monthly or other
basis suited to their specific credit management needs. And they can change
how frequently they access those features whenever they wish. Intuitive,
colour graphics make these materials easy to read and understand.
-- Custom Debt Analysis and Graphical Trending: Personalized debt
analysis details how subscribers' debt affects their credit health, while
graphical trending helps them follow, understand and manage their progress.
-- Toll Free Access to Trained Specialists: Highly-trained specialists
are on call during normal business hours to guide and assist subscribers.
"Whether you're looking to guard your identity from theft or remain
continuously apprised of how a lender is likely to view you based on the
credit standing you've earned," adds Reid, "Credit Monitoring Unlimited can
help put you in control of your financial destiny starting right now."
