Trans Union Credit Bureau

To Whom It May Concern:

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, I understand that I have the right to get a copy of my credit report once a year. I have cause to believe that some information in my report is incorrect, and I’d like to double-check this.

Jim Wyle Chevrolet has also denied me credit on DATE. To the best of my knowledge, nothing should have prevented me from obtaining a new vehicle. I need to double-check my report to make sure the information is correct.

I understand that proof of my identification will be required by your company. My social security number is 298-76-5498, and my present residence is 120 Stewart Rd. in Columbus, Ohio.

I have also attached a copy of my driver’s license which has my current address and social security number clearly printed on it. I would appreciate your prompt attention on this matter.

Sincerely,

Jeff Thompson
