I have pretty good credit but my SS# has been used several times by people w/o my knowledge....I always manage to clear things up and get the fraudulant info removed from my credit report. Since this has happened several times I was thinking about applying for a new SS#.
yes this keeps happening to me by a relative who has the same name as myself, they are letting him apply for credit and get things without showing proof of his social and now i am fighting to get things removed

That sucks!!! I had a crazy thought to use my sons social security number. He is only 4 months. By the time he is old enough to start using credit, everything will be cleared. His name is the same as mine. (just kidding-I will not try that)
