It's definitely possible to have a credit report without a SSN, I opened a checking account from BofA a few months before I got my social, the day I got my SSN, I made a couple apps, a while later when I was accessing my credit reports, two of them showed the age of the report since around the time I got my SSN while one report (I forget which either EQ or TU) showed my report since a few months earlier around the time I made my checking account. It seems like BofA made me an account by one credit bureau just by opening a checking account although they didn't have any pulls on it.

Try to be more civil and others will likely be civil in kind.  And I'm not just talking to you, this forum is getting way too argumentative of late.
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

I guess you forgot that a SS# is not necessary to pull a credit report.   :)

I applied for this card using my passport number and got a hard pull on Experian (i did use my home address and own phone number so that could have been my mistake)

Get a UK credit card?
Get a US SSN?

What bothers me is the "not a citizen yet" means your friend is probably living here long enough to get a SSN. Any legal job requires one, so no reason not to have one yet.

If your friend is trying to lay low off the grid, maybe avoid using any credit card is better?
