    Credit Fraud
    I just received a call from my uncle asking my why I was applying for credit and that they were calling for a reference check. I have not applied for a loan lately! What should I do? I have tried to call the number back that the company gave to them and receive an answering machine and nothing else. I am still awaiting a call from the company.
