Consumer Complaint: The debt showing on my credit reports is not mine. The account states that it was opened on XX/XX/XXXX. During this time I was incarcerated until XX/XX/XXXX. There is no way I could have established this account nor give anyone else permissions on my behalf. Based on the information showing on my reports, I cant even identify what type of account this is. However, I do know that I was not in the position to have opened this frivolous account.
