Minor Child Warning

Generally an individual under the age of 18 does not have a credit file. If you believe your child's information has been used to obtain credit, please mail a letter of explanation with a copy of the following to the address shown below:

* A copy of the child's birth certificate.
* A copy of the child's Social Security card or a document from the Social Security Administration that shows the child's Social Security number.
* A copy of your driver's license or state issued id. (Must show proof of current address)
* If you are not the parent of the minor, a copy of the document giving you legal authority to act on behalf of the minor child.

To ensure that your request is processed without delay, please enlarge photocopies of any items that contain small print (e.g. driver's license, W2 forms, etc.). To avoid additional delays, keep in mind that if photocopies are not legible or contain highlighting, they may cause us to ask that you resubmit your request with more legible documents.
