Are you seeing this on your credit report? If so, it's very likely that either you or someone who handled an application that shows up on your credit history (rent, credit card, etc) mispelled your last name.  This happened to me when I applied for a Target Red Card, and I had to call both Target and the credit bureau to change it.  Another reason could be that someone tried to apply for a loan/credit card as you and mispelled your last name, but you'll be able to see evidence of this on your credit report.  Hope this helps!
