So yesterday I saw this little guy pop up on Credit Karma. I signed up for the $1 Equifax 3-Bureau Report trial and confirmed this is not a drill.
I disputed directly with Equifax online yesterday (1.22.19). They were very quick to respond (1.23.19). However, this was their response.
So I called SNYCB/PPC (Synchrony Bank/PayPal Credit apparently) and they stated they don't see an account under my name, but they will request Equifax remove the inquiry and put out a flag for any future attempts at creating an account under my name/social.
I have now locked down all bureaus (something that should've been done to prevent all this). A police report seems overkill for an inquiry, but if you think it's a must, let me know. I'll check back on Credit Karma when it refreshes to see if this actually came off. Is there anything else I should be doing?
