Smells like an attempted identity theft

Yesterday I noted instead of paying a monthly fee for Life Lock, that I have placed a security freeze on my credit.

Upon arriving home this evening I found two letters from Experian.  I opened the letters immediately. They are identical. The news is not comforting. The first two paragraphs state,

“In accordance with state legislation and pursuant to your request to have a Security Freeze placed on your Experian Credit Report, we are required to notify you that within the last 30 days, changes to your name, address  or Social  Security Freeze Number have been reported to us by a creditor.

If there was an address change, letters have been sent to both your address at the time your report was frozen and to any newly reported address.”

I smell an identity theft rat.

Needless to say, will call Experian tomorrow morning.
