AMEX Business with a random business name and my name

Postby Pemdasss » Fri Feb 26, 2016 1:39 pm

I received an Amex business card offer in the mail today with my previous name that I don't use anymore with a business name of "Glamour Nail Spa". I don't own a business nor have I have used the name in many years. I called Amex and gave them my ssn and said they don't have any applications for me and told me not to worry. My question is how did Amex associate my previous name with the name Glamour Nail Spa. I've never heard of this business in my life. Would someone have had tried to apply for a business card using my name and that business name? I have had family being known to use people's ssn and open credit cards and wireless phone accounts so seeing this alarmed me. Any suggestions?

I would suggest pulling all your credit reports as a back up and monitor it for a while and or you can just put a freeze on your credit reports.
