Someone either purposely or accidentally typed int h wrong credit card numbers.

Best Answer

oh no looks like id theft .. sort it out quick!

Best Answer

Someone's taken your identity and used it to get a credit card in your name. All you can do is go to the company and explain; hopefully they're used to that sort of thing by now and will sort it out for you. Not entirely sure how you stop it happening again, though. (Here in the UK, all applications for credit have to go through credit reference agencies, and you can go to them to put protections in place, like making sure you're notified when anyone tries anything like this.)

Best Answer

why they don't use they own name to open the credit card?

Best Answer

Because then they'd get the bill. The whole point is to spend, keep whatever they buy and leave you to deal with it. It's fraud.

Best Answer

Because this way they don't have to pay. You're being stuck with the bill and they have a lot of stuff they got for free and are probably turning into cash.

Best Answer

but why they do that to me i just a kids ????

Best Answer

They don't care, and they probably don't even know much about you (beyond what they needed to get the account opened). It's not personal, it's just about the money and your personal information happened to fall into their hands.
