Need Advice Please.... D&B has my biz name misspelled incorrectly?

Hi all, I am new to the credit world and have a small business that I set up around 3-4 months back, not done much as I also am new to credit over here in this country and I am building my scores up in my personal credit first... been 7 months on that side of things... scores keep rising.. my goal is to give it another 2 months then hopefully apply for a small personal loan or biz loan to move my small concreting business forward. 

 

My concern today is that when I went online to the D&B site to obtain my free duns number my business name appeared in their data base as incorectly spelled... there is a "N"  there instead of an "M" easy mistake but I am unsure whether I should click on that name and continue the registration process. 

 

I have had some mail come through under that misspelled name but usualy get the same mail resent with the correct name to, I have only 2 companies I have biz with and they are centruy link and cap1 biz cc... neither of them are spelled incorrectly so I don't know where the incorrectly spelled name comes from?

 

Anyway's I would like to know what to do now to rectify this mistake with D&B, Shoul I continue with the registration process online with D&B under the name they have and be able to change my biz name to the correct spelled one or not once registered?

 

Thanks in advance.. Marc

over 25 views and not one answer as to what I should do next? 

 

I need to obtain my DUNS number and when I go onto the D&B site it comes up with my biz details but misspelled company name by one letter... can I still register under that biz name and correct it once I am registered in the system? not a lot to ask this.

If I had that, I'd just call them and ask them to correct it. Sounds like a creditor had a typo and that typo became the official name in DnB's records.
