We all get the annoying Credit Card offers from the major lenders and banks. Well this issue is a first for me. As always I keep getting the regualr offers- but in the last week I got 5 or 6 offers to:

My Biz
Person I don't know
My Biz address

So it look like this:

My Biz Name
Mike Baxter (whom I don't know - I am a sole proprietor-no employees)
My Biz address

Your Pre-Qualified...blah blah blah!!


I have had several all with different false names but 3 with the same false name from 3 different banks.


I call the banks and they say they have no idea why the name is associated with my biz and cant tell me where they get their information.


any tips?

My "cat" has received these credit card offers in the mail! Maybe got his name from the vet??? So many of these are computer generated that it's not worth the time or effort to figure them out.... just toss them out and forget about them. 8)

thats cool, I just got spooked because I just saw a TV program where a guy was associating his name with businesses and eventually using them a clearing houses for checks.
