    Default My background check age
    So this is pretty random for modmyi but I don't have a clue where to seek information for this so I turn to my fellow MMI'ers.

    I'm 21 years old and I've been getting solicitations for AARP, hearing aids, etc for probably two years now. I never thought anything of it, except that is was weird and kind of annoying.

    Fast forward to now, I saw that BeenVerified app that lets you check 6 people for free, so I decided to play around with it and check myself. It lists people by age I could not find myself anywhere until I searched for my dad and went to his relatives. Well there I was listed at AGE 51! That certainly explained those solicitations.

    So obviously some database somewhere that solicitors pull from has me at 51. Now how do I go about fixing that? Or does it even matter? I'm not even sure if it matters, other than the annoying hearing aid mailings. So surely somewhere here must know if and how I should do something about it.

    Hopefully it's not due to identity theft. I would pull your credit report and check. You get a free one each year but the legit site to get it is from: AnnualCreditReport dot com. That website is government run.

    Make sure nobody has anything open in your name and maybe changed your age. It happens a lot to younger people. There are also bad parents who open credit cards in their babies names and mess up their credit all before the baby turns 1 years old.

    I would check with Experian, Equifax, or Transunion and maybe they can correct it or put a block on your credit to prevent any fraud. If there are any discrepancies on your report you can dispute them.

    I have a friend who inherited a SSN from a dead person and the identity services failed to update everything. She didn't know until she was buying her first house and the credit applications etc listed her as 85 and deceased!

    Yea I thought that first, but I've checked my credit report and the only thing on it is my 1 student credit card, so that's ok.

    Were they able to fix it?

    I mean I guess it's not a big deal if it doesn't cause any problems, but I get an AARP or hearing aid or something similar letter at least once a week and it's fairly annoying.

    But I haven't a clue what to do about it.

    Lol. Don't listen to that guy. You may have the same case as the lady who inherited someones SSN. I would probably make some calls to the social security office unless someone has a number that you should be calling.
