Credit Repair/Payday loans/Grants/Auto loans


In 2011 I was down and out. I applied for online loan after loan and was denied.

I am now stable, working and repairing my credit.

As of yesterday, I've been bombarded with loan companies responding to applications. I've not applied in 2-3 years.

I am trying to figure out if they are just now responding to my improved credit or if someone is trying to obtain credit/loans in my name.

I've asked for the address of the application I supposedly applied with and they give me the old address I was at almost 3 years ago.

Do you know what is going on?
Also interested in credit repair without a credit repair company.

It may also be worth the money to place a security freeze on your credit as well.

Finally, a free credit repair source is
