    how to get account numbers??

    I recently got my credit report from the 3 agencies. There are some accounts that I want to dispute but the report doesn't list the whole account number. It only lists something like 4567XXXX. How do I dispute this without having the whole number?

    ACCOUNT #4567XXXX IS NOT MINE

    ACCOUNT #4587-6920-2588-XXXX IS A "JOINT" ACCOUNT NOT "UNKNOWN"

    ACCOUNT #258999XXXXX HAS A BALANCE OF $2,542 IT IS PAID IN FULL BALANCE HAS BEEN $0 FOR 2 MONTHS PLEASE UPDATE

    If you have destroyed your statements, try looking at your cancelled checks for the numbers or if you pay on line, you should be able to get them there, but I like George's reply. You really shouldn't have to worry about the last 4 digits of the account.

    WHAT IS STATED ON THE CREDIT REPORT IS ALL YOU NEED TO DISPUTE...they are never going to demand more of the account number!!!!!!!

    They print it that way BECAUSE THEY WANT TO...THEY "TRY" TO PROTECT YOU...

    "IF" somebody stole the report...they could NOT do anything with the shortened account number...

    Exactly! Never give them more than they show. I disputed all of mine this way and I was very careful to show the account exactly as they had it. If you give them the full account number, it is just a left handed (is that politically correct?) admittance of account ownership.

    Since EX, EQ and TU have different styles of showing the account, I also made sure not to mix up the styles. Maybe I am paranoid? No, They Really Are After Us!

    *****Simple all you need is as it's shown on the report.
