Experian and Equifax are reporting my name wrong. I read that variations in your name will no matter that much as long as it's not something dramatic.
They are reporting my name as
T. J. Kelly
T. Null Kelly
when in fact my name is simply TJ Kelly, no middle name, just TJ KELLY!
When I asked them to remove the others they said that the majority of my creditors are reporting my name as T. Kelly. They said I would have to call all of them. I'm really afraid to call though, I don't want to bring anymore attention to my accounts due to the credit line increases.
So should I leave it alone?
Will it really not matter or will it hurt me in the long run?
