Retai trades

Received a credit alert titled "Retail Trades" and it has an amount listed. I can't seem to find any information on what it means. It was on my TU reprt. It didn't change my score from what I can see. Just curious as to what I means. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Retai trades

Quick Googling seems to indicate that trade is synonymous for "credit account".  Do you have store cards?

Yes. But nothing close to that amount. That's whats so confusing about it.

Re: Retai trades

Try contacting the credit bureaus directly and ask where they got their information from. Someone reported the account, so see if they will provide the information that got it on to your report in the first place.

 

If the bureaus don't have any information - dispute the account. If the bureasu can't prove the validity of it and if you legitimately have no record of it, then it doesn't need to be on your report. If the bureaus can't verify it, they will remove it.
