It asks to get your credit score/rating for themselves based on the information you submit. Hell no!

its a financial services company people can be too paranoid these days
i ran into this telling people about credit karma that you can get your credit score for free all the time and people were paranoid about giving their info over and I am like don't you want your score without having to pay $26 a month to equifax
in the end its up to you but a bitcoin is totally worth it hahaha

one of these credit agencies had people's personal info hacked just this past year.
This one does seem shady....I'm not in for this one.

I think Mogo is a widely used and trusted service but I question the whole crypto currency promotion on their part. I think they built their brand around financial accountability and debt management so what's with the push towards the extremely speculative Bitcoin? Just saying, and it's a personal choice if you want to divulge financial information. As for hacking, there really AREN'T many air tight companies so you take your chances with contests too. It's mostly stuff that people can get from the internet or Equifax anyway!

I would never agree to have my credit score checked regularly, they're phishing to see who has money and good credit. I do not recommend this type of contest.
Way too much personal info being shared with whoever they see fit.
