Is something screwy with Equifax?
I have multiple credit cards from various banks and creditors, but nothing shows up on my Equifax reports...and the information that is there is outdated - not past the 7 years - but balances, limits, etc are wrong. I've disputed severl times to no avail...
For example, my Barclays Arrival, which I've had for 3 years has never shown up on my Equifax report. My capital One accounts, also years old, are showing incorrect balances and limits.
My credit card from my credit union has never shown up either.
It's frustrating because the lack of report information is causing a misrepresentation of my credit score. Equifax is WAAAYYY off.
How can I get them to correctly report information? I've disputed with them directly, and also with the creditors and nothing has changed.
Suggestions? Experiences? AMi I the only one with this issue?
Is your name shown in your Equifax file exactly the same as that on file with your creditors? Same for SS number?
I would google split file. At least my guess is you have two credit files with Equifax. Your will need to call Equifax to merge them together. Explain the issue. Get them to investigate.
Another option is as Captool says. If your SSN isn't correct on Equifax it wouldn't report correctly. However, if you can pull the report I am assuming your SSN is correct.
