Generally, AcmeFool, you're correct. Just call the 1-800 number to order, but the original posted indicated that this was impossible because: [info I originally missed deleted]

In which case you follow the instructions they provide. Or you call other Equifax phone numbers and have someone transfer you to the right department...such as the alternate number that is supposed to be for when they deny you credit -- 1-800-997-2493.

IMO, going to the AG is not something that should be done after a few missteps. I actually don't think Equifax has done anything wrong...I just think there is a disjoint that needs to be figured out. Once that has been solved, I bet the whole problem will disappear and the credit report will be easily available.

In any case, I think going to the AG would be the wrong way to proceed here.
