you need real people to talk to

Helpful to 371 out of 457 people

Had I known that your site did not have a phone number in order to talk to a real live person, I never would have used your service. You all should really think about upgrading you customer support service system. At the very least a 24 Hour "Live Chat" session would be helpful for instant responses about account questions and ect........This is just very bad business.

this service is 100 percent free to you, it goes above and beyond while asking nothing in return...not to mention extremely user friendly

I should check on that first before I sign up account. A website has no contact number, I would never give them my personal information. I shod be aware that earlier

What is a reasonable level of customer service for free?  I subscribed to services from MyFICO for over 10 years and over that time I had a few problems that I called customer service on, and I endured long waits, rude CSRs, and they could never ever answer any question about the scores or other anomalies. 

I feel that I get better responses Credit Karma, and it's free!  If I need to go through e-mail and wait, that's an ok deal by me.

Hmmm... Maybe CK should offer a pay-per-incident customer service line like some internet services do.

I am also very frustrated by having no way to communicate with CK. Some folks say, "But it's free!" Yes, it's free to us, but this is not a non.profit company. They rake in many millions from from the hard-directing, interactive CC company ads. And, they do have a pretty good product...one that engenders some level of trust over time. It is still very bad business practice to have no live customer service, and I agree that a live chat session design would be cost effective for them. I know a high percentage of questions are stupid, just like any other cust. service arena. Yes, I must refer my questions about score drops directly to TU. But I have a question about what may be a software problem...the credit score simulator, and I have opened three "tickets" over two weeks and 0 response.

I agree!!!!!! This is so frustrating!!!! since there is no live person I send an email to the support center.  I recieved a message that they were working on it and that I would hear back in a few days.  That was on January 4th.  Still nothing!! All I want to know is why aren't there account numbers provided in my credit report.  I need those numbers in order to dispute. I asked them if they could please provide me with the account numbers. I have never heard back....I sent another email on Jan 27th letting "support@creditkarma" know that I still hadn't heard back from them and again, I recieved another message statingt hat they were going to respond in a few days.  Still nothing.  I sent another email on Feb 1st.  still nothing! I could scream!!!

If anyone besides credit Karma can help me, please help!

Enter to not use their e-file tax function either they will do something on the back and that you won't be able to access your account and when you ultimately do your taxes would have been reduced by hundreds of dollars less than what they had originally LED you to believe Reply

Customer service is terrible

Helpful to 14 out of 18 people

I once recommended this site, but no more.  Happy to see my scores going and remaining over 800, but now site asks me to update my email (when it's correct), but gives me no option other than to update.  Now I can't get onto site and apparently impossible to contact a live agent.  Really terrible customer service.

You can set up a new e-mail with Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Etc. Then enter that email so you can log into your account. Then select "my account" and then select "update personal info" from there you can change your email address back to the right email.

Why do you not respond?

Helpful to 22 out of 27 people

I paid off every single one of my accounts over six weeks ago.  You still are reporting over $3,000.00 in debt.  You are providing false information.  Why are you a) not correcting this after I notified you, and b). not responding.  I find with more and more people that you do not respond to their concerns.  Do you subscribe to the BBB?

 Credit Karma does not create Credit Reports, they simply make them available to you. The credit bureaus create the reports. (TransUnion, Equifax and Experian). Keep in mind that lenders only report balances and payment status to these bureaus once a month, so it will take time for your payment to be reflected on your report. Credit Karma does provide a nifty feature to dispute errors with TransUnion. It's very user friendly and much easier than trying to do it with TransUnion directly!

all you can do is email them to "support@creditkarma" but good luck because I've yet to hear back and that was more than a month ago.
