Another user told us this:
The reports are split into two sections: Credit Factors — things like number of accounts, inquiries, utilization; and Credit Reports — personal information like name, address, etc.. The Credit Reports section was my own information, but the Credit Factors section definitely wasn’t. It listed four credit card accounts (I have more like 20 on my report), a missed payment (I’m 100% on time with payments), a Honda auto loan (never had one with Honda), student loan financing (mine are paid off and too old to appear on my report), and cards with an issuer that I have no relationship with (Discover).
Several screenshots seen by TechCrunch show other people’s accounts, including details about their credit card accounts and their current balance.Another user who was affected said they could read another person’s Credit Factors — including derogatory credit marks — but that the Credit Report tab with that user’s personal information, like names and addresses, was blank.
