hahah. Sounds sort of like something that happened to my mum, apparently she's on Canada's list of "most wanted". I guess somebody has the same name and birthday as her, so for a while every time my mum went somewhere to show her ID or passport she got questioned pretty heavily. They finally got the picture that it's definitely not her.
I can't just call the three credit reporting agencies, you have to send them a written explanation.
I did talk to the credit card place to tell them I am not 'deceased', but am alive. They informed me they would send that for review (that I am actually alive) and would have a decision about that by March 15. Huh?
