How to Remove an Incorrect Address from Credit Report

Dear Experian,

You have me listed at an address I have never lived at. How is this removed?

-DNW

Dear DNW,

Your creditors may report any address where you have received mail, and any address associated with an account that has your name on it. This means that work addresses and P.O. Boxes can be listed, even though you never actually lived there.

The same applies to temporary mailing addresses. If you are a joint account holder or authorized user on account with a friend or family member, their address could be associated with you and subsequently be reported as well.

If you are unfamiliar with a certain address on your report, you can contact Experian to request more information by following the dispute instructions provided with your personal credit report. If the address is not associated with any of your accounts, we will be happy to remove it upon your request.

Thanks for asking.
