Default Experian credit check

192.com sent me a link for a free credit check. This took me to Experian and I filled in a boring form giving details of my life and times, and for a reason that seemed adequate, details of my credit card. Against my better judgement I filled it in and hit continue. And it came up a 404 without a backspace return oprion.

So I went to the Experian site and noted that the free data-entry page there, was a different format. Gosh. I have been phished. So at once I rang my credit card company and cancelled my card.

The good news is that just two days later on Saturday morning a replacement card arrived by courier. And I had a quick response from 192.com apologising. Not a word from Experian, not even for the 404 link.
