Individual Taxpayer ID number cannot be used in place of Social Security number

Dear Experian,

I’m trying to request a dispute on my credit report, but it asks me for a credit report number. I have tried to request my annual free report but I can’t since I don’t have a Social Security number. I do have an ITIN number but the system won’t accept it. What are my options?

Dear Experian,

If someone has your Social Security number and your date of birth, can they access your credit report online? How can you tell when your credit report was last checked, and by whom? I think that someone checked my credit report, and it was not me.

Social Security number variations on your credit report

Dear Experian,

What is a Social Security number variation? When looking up my personal information on Experian, a number came up under “Social Security number variation.” The number that came up was nothing close to my Social Security number.
