Corpus Christi, TX asked in Identity Theft for Texas

Q: My credit card company is refusing to work with me when someone with my same name opened a credit card account that's

now affecting my credit. I think it's just an honest mistake (the cardholder seems to be a man and I'm a woman with a gender neutral name), but how do I get them to look into this so my credit report isn't negatively impacted?

A: Go to HWH-law.com and click on the tab identity theft. You can see how to write the needed letter and what you need to say. The good news is that many times a well written letter makes the problem end. If not, you have rights and you will want to contact a lawyer that handles FCRA and ID Theft cases. Good luck!
