How to unfreeze Experian? Please assist!

Hello,

 

I froze Experian a while ago, and would like to unfreeze it.  However, I cannot find out how/where to unfreeze.  I called Experians automated system, and its asking me for a number that was given to me when I first froze it.  I don't have this number anymore.  Any experience with this?

 

Thanks,

 

JP

When it ask you for the number just hit 0 like 10 times and it will send you to a person (my little trick to get out of automation)

Good Luck unfreezing. My husband is military and froze his 4 years ago. We have been working for almost 2 years to get the freeze off. Mailed them everything they asked for 3 separate times, with delivery confirmation, and still nadda. Hope you have better success than we have had.

Oh dear, without the PIN you were given when you freeze your report, it is going to be a pain to unfreeze it.
