I knew there was at least one other.  I used to get
threatening letters and phone calls from bill collectors, because he
had gotten divorced, gotten stuck with his ex-wife’s Sears bill (about
$750) and did not pay it.  

It showed up on my credit report for years.  I wrote several
letters trying to get it removed, but they never would.  

It is gone now.  That’s the way these things work.

    There is a database of the frequency of names from the US census that I think they’re using here. I appears to take frequency of first name and frequency of last name and then calculate the probable intersection.

    Of course that’s obviously flawed. Try entering “Juan Murphy” – 560.
