Hi Deborah,

That happens a lot. The case I encountered was that someone recently was listed as the authorized user of a credit card, and this person has similar name to yours and lived in a similar address as yours (or your previous addresses). The problem is being listed as an authorized user doesn't require SSN so this information may enter your report. What you can do is to dispute the error with the bureaus, please follow the steps here:

Good luck!
