Credit challenges when a father and son share the same name

Dear Experian,

I am writing from an employee assistance program company. We help employees find answers and resources to deal with various personal problems. An employee from one of our client companies has the same name as his father. The son and father are having their credit information intermixed. How can they get this corrected, and is there anything they can do to help prevent this from happening in the future?


When an ex-spouse attempts to get your credit report

Dear Experian,

I was divorced a little over a year ago. My former spouse knows all of my identifying information. Could he get a copy of my credit report?
