Auto financing deny letter without buying a car
I have received a letter from a dealership saying that my application for auto financing had been denied. However, I have not purchased any car nor applied for financing from that dealership. Is that possible that my personal information may be used without me knowing it?

It's very possible. 

Get a copy of your Credit Report.  AnnualCreditReport .com proveides one free copy of your credit report from each of the CRA's a year.   If you see suspicious activity on any of your reports, Place a "Fraud Alert"  on your credit file and dispute any info you do not recognize. Google it for more info on how to go about it. 

Good Luck

Should I file any complaint/report to any organization? 

I believe this kind of action should never be allowed/tolerated, but I am not sure what type of action will be over-reacting...

Thanks,
