An Assistant Illinois Attorney General, in a letter sent to Experian’s CEO on behalf of the Illinois AG and the AGs of 35 other states and the District of Columbia, has asked Experian not to charge any credit freeze-related fees.

In the letter, which references the recent Equifax data breach, the Assistant Illinois AG notes that seven states currently prohibit consumer reporting agencies from charging fees to place a credit freeze and at least two others have introduced legislation that would require CRAs to offer free credit freezes.

In addition to Illinois, the other states joining the letter were: Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
