Removing an incorrect address from your credit report

Dear Experian,

An address for my bankruptcy lawyer suddenly appeared on my credit report as a single family residence and you won`t let me remove it. It says to contact the creditor, but doesn’t say who that is. I don’t have any mail going there, nor do I live there. Why is this on there, and why won`t you remove it?

Updating your address when you move

Dear Experian,

I recently purchased a house. My address has been changed with the bank, DMV, USPS, etc. However, I tried to get a new cell phone and was told you have not updated my address despite your website saying I don’t need to notify you when I move. Please update my address within your system so that I will no longer be restricted by information not matching up.
