credit score validation never works


So I've been trying to set up my credit score profile but the validation questions (which street, which city...) are always broken. I have probably tried this 5 times already with 2 weeks between each time. The first set of questions show relative information and actual places I lived in, but then the answers are just rejected even though I'm really sure of them, and the second and third set of questions are all "NONE OF THE ABOVE".

Just for debugging purposes, I'll need to inform you that I've had my SSN for only 4 years or so.


Any chance you have a credit freeze on your account at Equifax?  When I first tried while I still had a credit freeze on my account at Equifax, I received all sorts of odd errors.  I later tried again when I had done a credit freeze lift (for other reasons) and it finally worked on Mint.

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.
