Wow, that reminds me. I answered the phone at my grandma's house one day & there was an automated recording on the other end asking for my grandpa who has been dead for 21 years. I'm like "grandma, someone's trying to get ahold of ____" She's just like hang up, he isnt here... It's really strange too because they paid cash for everything. My grandma is in here early 60s and has a blank credit report. They even paid cash for both of their houses they have owned. But 21 years later, there is someone calling to talk to my deceased grandpa. Weird.
Wow, that is really strange, hopefully no one is using his information. You really should have your grandmother check it out and see if he is a victim of identity theft. It may affect something later that still has his name on it, like her home.
wow, i never thought about that. His name isnt on her home; as she bought this one after he died, but I never really thought about it. I am her legal POA, so I'll probably have to look into it then. How DO you check for identity theft? Other than a credit report; which I know has nothing on it; just an inquiry here and there for cable & such.
I know with the economy in the shape it's in. Identity theft is probably on the rise. So yes I would definitely get her to check into it. Because something isn't right about that. I'm not sure but don't you have to send a copy of the death certificate to his creditors.
Well, I'm pretty sure he didn't have creditors. They always paid cash for everything, even for their death planning; which is paid for in full for both my grandpa & my grandma. Maybe its medical? I don't know. I'll have to look into it for sure. If there were death certificates supposed to be mailed out, I'm sure that was taken care of. My grandpa died just months before I was born, so I don't know too much about the financials on their end; except for what my gramz tells me & her credit report lol
HOW do you look into it though? I have no idea. Can you even pull up a credit report for someone who died, let alone someone who died 21 years ago!?
