Customer Question

I recently became aware that someone has filed bankruptcy in my name. How do I contest this as I have never filed bankruptcy. It now appears as "dismissed" since no action was ever taken. Pls advise if there is something that I can do to contest this bankruptcy filing...I never signed any documents or anything....

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Consider filing a complaint with the California Atty. Gen.'s office regarding identity theft. You can then use a copy of that complaint to remove the filing from your credit reports.
