My name is wrong on my credit?
In 2013 I legally changed my name and, to my knowledge, my currentm legal name is correct on all credit reports. When I went to enter my personal info, I had to use my old legal name to get my scores. Have not run into this problem before using your service. Please help.

Hi there,

This happens often with name changes. The bureau may not have completely updated all files tied to your SSN. You can contact them for more information. This doesn't affect your credit score, though.
