Dear Experian,

I could not get my report online. It said I had to request it by mail. How and what do I do to do that?


Dear JMC,

For your security, if your identity cannot be sufficiently verified online, you will be asked to mail your request for a credit report, along with copies of documentation proving your identity.

Mail the completed form to:

Annual Credit Report Request Service
P.O. Box 105281
Atlanta, GA 30348-5281

Thanks for asking.
