"If it is a CA send them a DV for an UNKNOWN debt"


What is this? I just had something show up on my credit report for the first time that isn't mine, and have no idea how to proceed. Any detailed steps? Totally confused. Anderson Financial is the one trying to collect.

DV = debt validation letter


Welcome to the forums!

I'd suggest reading the following:

Common Abbreviations

Credit Scoring 101 - great for knowing what is in your credit score and to see how your score is impacted.

What Steps Do I Take - great for learning the repair process.

and Example letters - PFDs, GWs, DVs, etc.
