Re: [ignacio] Problem accessing www.annualcreditreport.com

Our computer location is inherent in our server. Any web site which wants to check our location can determine where we are.
Yes, the free credit report site run in accordance with the US Government requirement is apparently blocking access from computers located here in Mexico, and probably any other foreign site. Perhaps a proxy server will work for you as it will hide the fact you are in a foreign country. At least one works with the State of California sites.
I have given up on the FCR site because of several problems.
1. By regular mail I sent them a return-receipt registered letter from my Texas address asking for a copy of my free credit report from one of the credit reporting firms. I got the return-receipt. I never got the credit report. Whether they sent it, or whether it was stolen from the mail, or just got lost I never found out, but I decided not to take that risk again.
2. While in Texas and using my computer there I was able to enter the site without problems. However, after answering the multiple questions correctly about former addresses, mortgages, etc., including false repoonses they gave me to trip up anybody posing as myself, I finally got to credit card numbers and found that they wouldn't accept either of the correct numbers I sent them. Bummers.
3. I did not try talking to them at their 800 number. By that time I was just mad as hell.
Perhaps you folks will not have those problems. I wish you luck.
