SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — They’re pieces of your financial life that are critical to many dealings, and yet, many don’t understand them.

    Called a total of 92 times. Repeated busy signal. When I did finally connect, I was put in a queue. Alas, when id get to the end of the line, I was kicked off; this happened 3 times. Argh!!!

    I guess it was too good to be true to get a free credit score.

    I have an excellent credit history. I don’t have any debt; I pay my credit card off every month in full. I even earn points.

    Just wished there was a truly free manner in which to get one’s FICA score.

    I’m the counseling manager at Cambridge. The volume was high so it seems we didn’t get to everyone. If you call us tomorrow at Cambridge 800 527 7595 we will provide you with the score and the report totally free of charge

    Anyone can get their free score anytime at creditkarma.com just so you’re all aware.

    Thank you, Jonathan. I will call the number you provided later on today. Much appreciated!

    As for credit karma, yes, I’ve known about it and even used it, but understand that it isn’t a fair issacs score. It’s an approximation.
