I got a notification from myFICO that a 'A state-specific fraud alert has been detected in your TransUnion data.' Anyone have a clue as to what this is? TransUnion is closed today and I haven't placed any fraud alerts. A freeze yes, fraud alert no.
The federal FCRA provides for fraud alerts under secion 605A.
Many states have their own versions of the federal FCRA that are often duplicative or more restrictive than the provisions of the federal FCRA.
It appears that some provision of your state code provides for fraud alerts that are similar to provisions of the federal FCRA, and that state provision has been provided to the CRA.
I haven't heard anything more on it. I called again, but they have no idea what I'm talking about. It's frustrating.
Yep, same thing here....no alerts, no lock (although I did just lock it) idk, just MyFico indicating this alert. Okay, good to know this is probably a glitch.
