I got an offer for a credit card and applied for it, but was denied. I couldn't understand why. They said they would send an explanation/reason for the denial.
I got the written letter; they said I was denied because all three of the credit reporting agencies (equifax, trans union, and the other one) all have me listed as being "deceased".
I have been working on trying to get them to understand I am in fact not dead, but really am alive.
