I am finally in a position to get serious about raising my credit score. I recently got my credit report and found a judgment against me from 2008. I never knew anything about this. It is my name but at an address I have never lived at. I live in VT and the judgment in from Suffolk County Court on LI and the address shown for me is on LI. I grew up on LI but haven't lived there since 1977 and haven't even stepped foot on LI since my mother's funeral in 2004. The address listed on the judgment isn't even close to where we lived. Should I contact the Court or dispute this on my reports?
