Removing incorrect employment information

Dear Experian,

There is a previous employer listed in my credit report that I have never heard of nor worked for. How might this impact my credit rating, and how do I correct the information?


Removing ex-spouse’s address from credit report after divorce

Dear Experian,

My credit report shows two addresses for my former husband, who moved to Virginia. I have lived in Illinois for 36 years. I was able to dispute one address, but not the other. How do I get both removed? Also, my employer information is wrong. I was able to dispute it, but not provide the correct employer information. How do I do that?


Employer listings on your credit report

Dear Experian,

I used to see my Experian credit report. You have my current employer incorrectly listed. The employer you show was a couple of jobs ago, and I work for a completely different company now. How significant is this? Should I request you update your records? Will I harm my credit standing by making such a request?
