They sent me 2 letters asking for additional info to vfy that I am who I say I am (a copy of my social security card and driver's license). Is this normal or will they use this info to verify that the debt is mine? Thanks.And my fico score dropped 17 pts. on equifax. Have not checked TU and Ex.Do I re-dispute if they come back verified? Will this be successful - to be persistent? Thanks for input!The credit reporting agencies can ask to verify your identity. As long as it is not the collectors who are asking for the info go ahead and give it to them. It is likely that the info they have on file is different.
