    09/04/2021 = Just made a complaint to them stating under GDPR they have issued my credit report to my named spouse - the details recorded are not her information but only mine! will await response!

    09/04/2021 =
    You mentioned that there is someone else’s details on your report. I’ve escalated this to the relevant team for their review and, as a precaution, we’ve locked your account.

    In the meantime, you may want to check your credit report directly with TransUnion, who are the credit reference agency we use to display your report, to make sure the information they hold is accurate. You can apply for your statutory report here.

    09/04/2021 = Responded :- I mentioned my report is showing in my spouses report!

    09/04/2021 =Thanks for your email regarding information relating to someone else contained within your credit report. I can completely understand why this may have caused you some concern.

    It seems as though your credit files have been merged - the main reason credit files become merged is as a result of the quality of the first piece of data supplied to TransUnion (both on you and the other person). We receive your credit file data from TransUnion, which we then turn into a credit report for you to view. When TransUnion first received data on you both it seems that their system could not differentiate between you – this happens more often with old data and public information records which don’t normally include your date of birth, one of the key things they use to differentiate you.

    The system creates individuals based upon this initial data, and even though it can spot differences later on, it has to continue to accept certain tolerances (for example a lender may provide them with information with an incorrect name spelling or incorrect date of birth as a result of manual error). This is because they do not want to separate every slight variation onto a different report, as this would disadvantage a lot of customers who regularly experience anomalies in their name or address either from their own errors or those of lenders/Royal Mail/Councils etc.

    This is a problem that TransUnion have done a great deal of work to resolve and it is now, thankfully, much rarer than it used to be, although it can still persist as not all data they receive contains a date of birth.

    Now that we are aware there is information showing on your credit report that isn’t yours, we have locked your account. You will be unable to access your credit report through Credit Karma until the issue is resolved. Once TransUnion has confirmed to you the issue has been fixed, please let us know. We will check your credit report and unlock the account if the incorrect data has been removed.

    It’s really simple for the files to be separated. All you need to do is log into the disputes portal on TransUnions website, access your credit report and raise a dispute against the entries you believe to be incorrect. This can be accessed via the following link https://www.transunionstatreport.co.uk/DisputesFAQ

    Once you have raised the dispute, please email TransUnion on Consumer@transunion.co.uk and enter ‘FILE SEPARATION’ within the subject box and include your full name and date of birth. TransUnion will then look at this as a priority for you.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions or if you want me to clarify anything.

          Have you had a satisfactory response to your complaint yet?

          If not you should refer it to the ICO tomorrow when Credit Karma's 8 weeks' period for resolving the issue expires.

          An email saying they're "sorry for the inconvenience caused" while they get back to normal isn't good enough.

              I have just given credit karma 7 days to respond before I escalate to the ICO

              I sent a GDPR request in March from my account using my registered email address. They said security was their priority and wanted me to email a copy of my passport or Driving Licence and give my name, address, DOB and inside leg. I did this within 2 days (25th March) but sent a copy of my recently expired passport saying I wasn't happy with the security of email.

              25th May (yes two months) they wrote back asking for ID so I caved and sent one side of my Driving Licence. Now they are saying it will be another 28 days . ICO next Tuesday

                  When I made a complaint to Credit Karma they tried to hide behind Transunion but I didn't agree with that.

                  My issue was that they (Credit Karma) outsourced complaint handling to a third party without my permission having given them my email address etc.

                  Credit Karma said the outsourced complaints people didn't have access to my Credit Karma file/financial details, which begged the question how could they possibly deal with my complaint!

                  I then copied my complaint to the Data Protection Officer at Transunion and the issue was resolved pronto.

                        They both play pass the parcel when it comes to responsibility for any data breaches perhaps because Credit Karma is based in San Francisco/California so may have a 'detached' view to compliance > https://ico.org.uk/ESDWebPages/Entry/Z3122941
