Best Answer

You can file a consumer dispute with the credit bureau to make any corrections on your report. You would contact them by using the method given when you got the copy of the report. They would then get back with you to let you know how to get the report corrected. If you are disputing something that a credit-grantor has reported, the bureau then contacts the business for them to verify or change the reported info.

Direct Deposit paycheck stubs that include my address name last four digits of SS and last four digits of bank account number accidentally thrown away into the trash anything I should worry about?

Nothing to be seriously concerned about because a social security number contains 9 numbers and the last 4 digits are just identifying you personally. No one would be able to open a credit card or bank account without your full social security number. The last 4 numbers of a bank account would not matter either as the entire number contains 12 numbers. Your name and address would not matter unless they also had your entire bank account number and/or social security number. If you should feel unsafe you're entitled to one free credit report per year from Equifax, Transunion, and Experian.
