Re: Preferred Cardholder division et al CCPA
I found some info on this company or division thereof. If anyone remembers a company named Encore, or Encore Marketing this looks to be a division of it, the "Preferred Cardholder Division".
They are at the same address on Forbes Blvd, Lanham, MD 20706
They've been in business since 1978.
Encore always had these membership packages, a long time ago I deposited one of their little checks and I don't remember what happened but at that time it was for just that registereing cards only and a small monthly fee to be able to replace them for you quickly and cut them off from thieves. Technology has changed now. So now they have probably branched out beyond packages which you will see for health, travel, etc into credit card database info. It seems, since they are in an area full of this database sources linked to the bureaus and/or government and are and have been in the Credit Reporting business themselves and have access to databases like with Experian which this offer does offer a free Credit report and score.
I'm still putting this altogether, but haven't decided what I'll do without further research but I'm getting there. Below look for yourself at the website.
This could be a sign our credit or fico scores are getting noticed again positively but of course beware of come ones and traps. However, this may not be one but why do they have to be so covert about it? It really makes one wonder, but they are in cahoots with the allure of credit through reporting and knowing when new credit cards are afoot elsewise why would they want your new business?.
Over the years, as i said earlier, they always have made some offers, it's just that this is a better one or at least at first glance appears to be. But we shall see!
Here is the website, although it doesn't talk about the Visa/MasterCard credit card offer, but it gives the full phone numbers and personnel names et al. The company has many divisions.
We can start here: This may be legit.
