Horror Story: You are alive. However, your credit report says you have passed away.
Okay, it’s not like everyone gets approved for a credit card when they apply. However, it’s not every day that a living person would get denied a credit card due to being proclaimed dead. That is what happened to Rita Katz when she tried to apply for a GAP credit card, according to a roundup by Bankrate.com. Apparently, there was some confusion, because Rita was clearly alive and ready to make some serious GAP purchases.
