Re: Walmart AU...who knew?

Walmart only ask for First Name and Last 

I was thinking of adding my mom and dad they need help rebuilding. I don't live with them and I'm guessing they are going to mail them to me since they don't ask for a mailing address. So how are they going to know who to report??

Re: Walmart AU...who knew?

My assumption is that they matched the name and address. My daughters both have student credit cards, so they do have active credit profiles.

Not certain, but I think they just report the info they have to the credit bureaus. The CBs are generally pretty good about aliases, addresses variations etc and have ways to accurately figure out to put that on your parents reports. Accuracy is their business, so I'm sure they have a method in place for this. Obv check up on it to see if it is getting reported though.
