Not surprised. Equifax messes up everything and it always rolls down to the other 2 it seems.
Make sure to keep those confirmaton numbers saved should it pop back up again.
I would call everyone.
EQ put an extended fraud alert on my file.
They contacted the other two who followed suit.
I sent them all letters to remove it.
TU and EX did. EQ did. Then one of them (not sure which), popped it back on (I think it was EX) and the other two followed suit.
So I just called them all in one afternoon. EX 'lowered' it to the standard one year 'initial' fraud alert, the other two are clear, and I'm just leaving well enough alone now.
Is this normal? Could Equifax have done this even though I removed fraud alert(when I called, I know should use certified mail)? I thought that was only when you place a Fraud alert they tell the other beaurea s...
I've removed my trans Union now waiting for Experian to be open 8 am to remove that one.
The EXACT thing happened to me. So annoying to deal with these bureaus.
I just went through this myself. The CRA have agreements in place to notify each other of fraud alerts.
You have to time the removals just right. If you try to remove one before it propagates through there entire system it will pop back up like a new alert and then get resent to the others. It’s maddening.
