Hi team4,

You can review your full credit report to look for any potentially fraudulent information. It's always possible that the mispelling is due to a clerical error from one of your creditors. You can have the error corrected by contacting the credit bureau directly. You will have to prove the correct spelling of your name by submiting identification, most likely.
