Hello Alan, if you give us more details, perhaps we could better answer your credit question. However, if someone has fraudulently opened a credit card in your name, your first option is to contact the creditor directly and inquire about the item and dispute it. Be sure to keep copies of all your correspondence with the creditor. The simpler option is upgrade your membership to Premium so you can communicate directly with the creditor and resolve the issue.

Premium account also includes ID Protector which will alert you to future situations where an account is opened in your name, so you can protect yourself from identity theft in the future.
