As if you don't have enough to worry about making sure your credit report is right and your score is good, some people are being denied loans because their report says they're dead.
It can happen by accident when a name gets confused from a death certificate sent in. If it happens to you, send a copy of your birth certificate, drivers license and a recent bill or bank statement with activity to prove you're still breathing.
