Victim of Identity Theft, How do I get the accounts removed from my credit report?0kangaroo2012-11-05 23:19:43
My daughters fiance just got a letter in the mail from a collection agency last week. He is 22 years old and has never had nor has he ever applied for any type of credit. The collection agency says it is for a loan from 2008. I had him go to annualcreditreport.com and get his free credit reports. There are two accounts listed as charge-offs from 2008 (I am having trouble finding out exactly what they are but it appears one is for a credit card and the other must be the loan the collection agency is calling about.) The point is neither one is his. It turns out that his stepmother and his father used his social security number and opened the loans, they admitted it. They also have a combined cable/dsl/phone service in his name and they owe $748. He has went to the sheriffs office and we have a copy of the police report. I also had him file a complaint with the FTC. My question is who do I need to send copies to to have this information removed from his credit file, the credit bureaus, the people reporting or both? Also what do we send copy of the police report and any other information that we have? Thanks to all who answer
Declined for secure credit card.. maybe victim of identity theft?2tyra cambell2012-10-20 17:52:56
I got a secured credit card through Bank of America . Now it was my understanding that these letters were tion for people with bad credit. I admit, I've never had a previous loan or loans or payments over time , so you have no credit history . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am concerned about identity theft yet . While I was in college in the early part of this year , I had my computer hacked and stolen some passwords . I do not think any of my financial information was made because I saw no change. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Anyway , it is quite common that fell for a secured credit card when you have absolutely no credit history ? Or is that someone using my name , and running my credit score way down without even knowing it ? How the hell do I build some credit , then?
