  1. In general, if you're not the one responsible for paying the bill, you're probably not going to get a boost in your credit score. On the other hand, if the fine print in your credit card agreement says "if the primary holder doesn't pay the bill, you will"...you might have another problem. How financially secure is your employer? You say these are cash cards? Again, in general, cash cards are not reported as normal credit cards...you can't use them to charge stuff if there's no money in the account. Bottom line...these are probably not going to help your scores even if they do get reported.
  2. Also, by giving employees access to this account, you've taken it from a "personal" account to a "business" account. Business accounts are not covered by most of the regulations we discuss. You've kind of wandered into the gotcha arena...if you do try to claim its personal, Crap 1 is going to pursue the fraud angle because you have multiple authorized users who are probably not related to you.
  3. Gee...Kelvin's email address is 4ficorepair @ gmail ...I'm gonna guess he might be the "ethical hacker" in question. Also, while a white hat hacker MIGHT be able to get thru to one of the credit reporting sites, it unlikely he could break into all of them.
  4. Look at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1779.pdf ... its probably not a yes or no question.
  5. "Compose New" then the button that says "source" gives you the paper clip.
  6. The minimum wage/paid-by-the-hour clerk that will enter your disputes into their computer system has a quota. They have to deal with X number of letters per hour. Which means, they only have a limited time to give each letter. When that time is up...they move on to the next. 12 disputes in one letter means they'll probably only do the first 3 or 4 and then move on. On the other hand, if they receive 12 different letters at the same time from what they see as the same person...they might ignore some of them. Bottom line...its a crap shoot. Dispute online if you can.
  7. There is no web site with that url...so, assume its a scam.
  8. Its not clear who will grant you credit based on this, but... https://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/new-fico-score-will-help-more-people-get-access-credit-n923291
  9. midland has their own web site...and an email server to go along with it. Its unlikely that they'd use a gmail account to contact you.
  10. Okay, this is different. It looks like Chase has already taken you to court and obtained a judgement against you. Cops do serve "Writs of Execution" and they do get paid for doing so. I think you need to find a lawyer. Bankruptcy looks like your best option.
  11. Police officers DO NOT collect for credit card companies. If the guy that came to your door identified himself as a cop, call your local police and report him and his phone number for impersonating an officer. This was probably an overly aggressive collection agent. Send him a debt validation letter ASAP.
  12. Okay, enough. smc1 … your original questions were answered and the advice you've been given is correct. If your only income is social security and you've talked to Midland's lawyer, then in all likely hood your case will be dismissed. But, if the debt is legitimate, it probably won't be removed from your credit reports. It is unlikely that Midland will resell it...but...you do need to keep watch. You have no grounds for forcing Midland to do anything.
  13. Some debts "pass through" a BK...which means they're not discharged and you still owe them. It used to be that if you continued to make payments, it was understood that the debt passed thru. The laws changed around 2004-2006. I still suggest you talk to a lawyer. This specific case could be complicated.
  14. IIB = included in bankruptcy. If he filed BK, and listed trailer in the paperwork, he doesn't owe taxes. See a lawyer.
