I created an account, and then swiftly deleted it, at Freecreditscore dot com. Is my information safe?

I was setting up a mint.com account, and there was a section for my credit score. I had no idea what mine was, and Mint provided links to a few reporting agencies. I thought to myself "Well, self, it's probably at least somewhat okay? Right?" So I went through with it, found my score too good to be true, and did some digging around: Every other word was "SCAM." All the others were "LAWSUIT."
So I called them and axed the account, and that went fine.
Question is, though, am "I" likely to try to buy a car soon or something? Or does the scam amount more hidden fees and charges and things?
I usually consider myself to be pretty savvy re: this sort of stuff, but I must not be eating my vitamins.
