  1. A junk debt buyer (JDB) added a collection to my three credit reports a few months ago. The original creditor they're listing is an online entity I received a loan through. However, the loan agreements were between a different company and me. If that's not bad enough, the amount they claim I owe is completely fabricated... and they're raising it each month with interest and fees. I disputed this account with all three credit bureaus. It was verified within a month. What is the best way to dispute a collection on a credit report based on a JDB's standing? I'm not sure how I can

  3. Just wondering if you guys had any luck with disputing an item and getting it removed after paying in full. The company absolutely refused to delete and they wouldn't settle, so I went ahead and paid the $242. I started with a 481 CS on November 1, 2015 and I'm now at 616.

  9. Hi there, A few years ago I was sued by a creditor. I was young and dumb and didn't attend the hearings. I never received anything from the court stating that I had a judgement (that I can remember - this was in 2009). I did receive a letter from the creditor saying they had a "judgement".
