Auto & Home loan that aren't mine


 I need IMMEDIATE help. When signing up to get my credit score on mint I was asked a series of questions that were worded as, "you may have an auto loan with one of these companies from 2010", and "you may have a home loan with one of these companies in 2014". NONE which I have.

Should I be worried? Who can I contact about this? I am so scared that someone has stolen my identity or my social security.





There's no need to be worried, it is perfectly acceptable to answer "none of the above" to all four questions asked if they do not pertain to you, or information that Equifax may have on file for you. 

Thank you,

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
