Personal info on CRs

I was able to get a lot of old addresses off of my credit reports. 

 

Today I got an alert on my TU Quarterly Monitoring that there was new personal info on my report.

 

I logged in and my cell phone number is now on there.

 

I haven't app'd for any new credit so I'm not sure why it's NOW reporting on there? 

 

It IS accurate info but I really don't want it on there. 

 

Do I have options?

Re: Personal info on CRs

An existing creditor more than likely updated something and the phone number was on the update.

 

I'm not sure if it can be removed if a current creditor reports it.  You could contact TU and ask them.

Re: Personal info on CRs

I just succeeded in having several of my telephone numbers removed from my credit reports with Transunion.

 

I am going to check EX and EQ this week.

 

I don't want my cell number on my Credit reports.  No thanks! :smileyhappy:

Re: Personal info on CRs

I didn't either.  That's why I stopped using it when applying for things. 

 

I have gotten old numbers removed but not a current one.
