Confused Names and Social Security Numbers
(Houston, TX, USA)
My mom and I have very similar names. When I do a credit report on my name some of my mom's debt appears as mine?? And the other way around too. For example, my school loans appear on mine and on hers. Now i did all the paper work for the loans and know for a fact that she had nothing to do with that loan. She did not co-sign, was not even present during the loan process!!!
At the bottom of the credit reports it shows her name and ss as other alias for me!! Its all confused?? The reason that I am asking is cause now she is trying to get a loan for a house, she was told by the bank that she has too much debt? and when we looked at it closely those loans are appearing under both of our names (not that they are behind on payments).
I guess I am just confused on how we can keep each others debt separate?
