    Chartered Trust on Credit Report - Who are they???

    Chartered Trust on Credit Report - Who are they??? 18th Oct 09 at 4:32 PM
    Hi

    I get a monthly Equifax credit report, and the most recent one has shown a change to my file

    The entry is a 'New Loan' and the company is Chartered Trust. I've not signed up to any loan agreements recently, and definitely not with this company who show up very little info when you Google search them

    Has anyone heard of them?

    Importantly, how do I get this removed from my credit file? I'm worried about identity theft (had this happen before and it's a nightmare)

    Any advice appreciated - cheers

    Oh dear... there's now a new credit card logged on my credit report

    What do I do now? How do Equifax step in to help? I seem to have been hit by identity theft

    Any advice appreciated

    Got to get to the bottom of this credit card though

    Make sure the Black Horse/Chartered Trust thingy is the right amount too If you are sure the credit card isn't yours though then immediately place a notice on it through the credit reference company

    The problem with Equifax is that their 'reports' are so vague, they dont even give you account numbers or contact details for the people on your report. You're forced to call the helpline... which I will later

    cheers
