There are lots of sites and some financial institutions that offer scores, including CEO Ian Cohen and Director of Consumer Education Gerri Detweiler have taken some time to introduce the media to some new tools offered through, like two free credit scores used by lenders, as well as an option to create a free, 6-month plan for improving your credit.

Gerri and Adam Levin,’s chairman and co-founder, shared their expertise on credit cards and fraud with reporters writing about financial tips for consumers, as well as the ongoing news surrounding the Target data breach from December.
