If you get this, it means you were identified as a potential victim.If you get this, it means you weren't.This is my understanding.
That was my take as well.

So I don't know what the message without any info means.

I think CM's accounts were hacked and someone spent $200k in a month online on his cards.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I actually had two fake credit card apps in July and August. They had my correct name and social... I put alerts on all my credit reports for 90 days but haven't filed a police report yet, required for the seven year fraud protection.

Out of the 10 SSNs I checked (family, folks, grandparents etc)  6 were hacked. 5 were given a future date to finish enrolling. 1 was allowed to partially enroll.




       Annoying to feel pressured to keep on top of all these SSNs and activity.
