Well for starters I would gather your dad and both call TU, tell them what is going on and they should be able to verify the social used on the application etc. It will take a few days and you will probably have to mail in proofs etc. This should help establish your own files. I am surpised you are having this issue. My dad and I have the same name and address until I was 22 and had only 1 out of 15 things get reported wrong.

Since its not fraud, your Dad needs to write Fingerhut, explain the situation and they should notify all bureaus affected. They may want your Dad to send a copy of his ID and/or SS for verification purposes. I would also send the request certified mail.
I called TU about an inquiry from a bank- they told me that the only way they remove inq's if they are not fraud related is if the creditor/lender notifies them.
Hope that helps.

Do they actually ask for your SSN ??? You both probably have a different SSN right ?? how is that possible ???

@nicholasyud Yes we have different ssn but I have no credit history nor public records so they might of only found my dad which has the same name and address as me and thought I was him. IDK its pretty retarded since we have different ssn.

According to finger hut or web bank i have to write to TU and tell them the situation so that they can electronically inform finger hut.... thats what the lady said to me. I now have to call TU and make them give me the address were you dispute inquiries. All this having same name and adress is really making it hard for me to even be added to credit cards as AU beacuse they will immediately report it to my dads credit bureaus and not mines it sucks.

I have no close relatives. For now I'll just wait 6 more months until my credit builds with my Sears Mastrecard which Im as AU which required my ssn# and hasnt reported to my dads report like the others that Ive been added to. So it looks like its reproting to my credit
