    I learned this morning that the phone company here has me listed twice. Once correctly...and once, at an address in the city where I have never lived.

    The incorrect listing is no longer in service.

    The number used in the listing with the incorrect address is the phone number we were given when we were down here last year. That account was closed when we left to go back home.

    According to the phone company, there was no billing to the incorrect address, there are no late charges or other outstanding fees, and it must have been a phone book publication error.

    Is there somewhere I should check to learn whether my information is being used by someone else for something other than a phone?

    Should I call the police?

    I think I should.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    You can go to and get a free credit report. At least you could see if there were any inquiries in your name for accounts that you aren't aware of.

    Thanks, Karen!

    I will do that.
