Someone tried to file an income tax return using our names and Social Security numbers, so I need to report identity theft to Experian. How do I do this?
I just lost my driver’s license and am considering putting a security freeze on my credit files. Would placing a freeze on my credit files interfere with me using my credit card, either online, at shops or for the services that are automatically billed to my credit card each month?
We got our credit card information stolen when they hacked into a major retailer’s system. The fraud charges caused our credit card balance to go over the limit. Experian is now reporting that we were over the limit on our account. Why? It was clearly not our fault, but when our credit report is viewed it reflects negatively on us.
What do I do when two names and Social Security numbers are on one credit report?
I was told by the bank that Experian was reporting the incorrect Social Security number. How do I verify the information that Experian has on file for me?
How do I check to see if my children have open credit reports? The form requires a driver’s license number, which they do not have.
I want to add my cell phone number to my file because I just put in a 90 day fraud alert. I noticed when I pulled my file up online, you only show my home number. When I call the numbers on the letter I received, it just wants me to order a report. I already have the online report.
