No, I meant have you heard of being ask a bunch of verification questions, where none of the offered answers were correct?

Sorry, I guess you needed to be more specific on what you meant by 'this'.

It was as if they had pulled the data for the questions from another person's credit history.

As alan81 suggests, it sounds like that's exactly what happened - that someone else's information got mixed in with your credit history. That has happened to me before. The only way to get it corrected is to confirm your identity to the credit bureau in the manner that they they request, get your credit report, and dispute any inaccurate information. You may need to ask for verification of the debt, to show that the debtor's information is inconsistent with your information.
