Re: no ideas where the fraud alert came from

While the FCRA authorizes fraud alerts only upon request of the consumer or their representative, when any iissue of potential fraud/identity theft is raised by a consumer, the CRAs will normally interpret that as a request for a fraud alert.

You can write the CRA and inform them to remove it.
