Consumer Complaint: Recently found out that there was unauthorized charges on my credit report that did not belong to me or belongs to someone with a similar name. I Approached XXXX and XXXX and told them that these did not belong to me. Through a bit of effort it was removed from these XXXX credit bureaus succesfully. Experian on the other hand has been extremely difficult to get ahold of online as well as on the telephone. Eventually after spending 20 + hours on the phone with Experian I filed disputes regarding collection from the agency ” XXXX XXXX XXXX ”. No resolution has been made my experian for these fraudulent and unauthorized charges on my credit report. It has been extremely difficult to pursue this issue with experian as contact from them is minimal and they are not doing the correct research.
