  1. I disputed with the OC 3 tradelines with Experian (Chase and Bank of America), they all came back issued resolved with no explanation other than, we have the correct information reported. The accounts are from 2011 and 2012. I now will have to dispute directly with the OC. When I do, what information do they have to exactly send to me to prove they are right. I no longer have my documents with these credit card accounts, and I know the burden falls on them to prove and if they cant, they have to remove

  4. John Oliver skewers credit bureaus for false reporting of consumers' credit histories and failing to take proper measures to correct errors in this hilarious presentation. http://time.com/4288093/john-oliver-credit-reports-last-week-tonight/

  6. Hi, In late 2010 I had a negative item appear on my credit reports from "Advanta Bank." Advanta Bank failed in 2009 and was shut down by the FDIC and State of Utah. They were heavily fined for deceptive and unfair business practices (ie. offering a 0% introductory interest rate and then rate jacking their customers to 38%). Advanta Bank ultimately declared bankruptcy. As far as I could determine, the FDIC was set up as a receiver for their deposits, and any debts owed were sold off to junk debt buyers. The former owners of Advanta have been individually sued for breach of fiduciary duty and
  7. Hey everyone!!! Been a board lurker for YEARRRRSSSSS finally decided to join. BTW thanks for getting me from low 500's at one time to mid 700's all you posts, sample letters, really helped me out!!.... until I screwed up again now back to the 500's (all my fault no one to blame) but steadily moving back up!!. So I just started with Experian inquiries.... always been easy to dispute and almost always 100% success rate with just a call and dispute to the CB. THIS TIME..... Exp seems to not be deleting them anymore, not even investigating, just moved em all to the "Soft" section?? Anyone
  8. I've posted a few times on this topic and came across an interesting article and comments from a leading credit industry expert and directly from Experian on the matter tonight. I had to post this for your thoughts and comments. After receiving an IRS 1099-C form from a creditor, also known as a "Cancellation of Debt" form, there is a debate on the creditor's continued legal right to collect, and how the matter should be reported to the credit bureaus. Regardless of where you (or court opinions) stand on the issue of future debt collection, the secondary issue of credit reporting appears to
  9. I have learned a lot in two days of browsing and I greatly appreciate all of the information here so far. I have one quick question. Midland Credit Management aka Midland Funding is on my credit with a suppsed debt to a bank. They initially said I owed $5,XXX and every month or so, that amount has increased to over five figures now. Anyway, I called TransUnion about something unrelated and they tell me over the phone that it's actually scheduled for deletion off my credit report NEXT MONTH. Such joy. One report says that the date of first deliquency is April 2008, another October 200
  10. 9 questions about credit scores you were too embarrassed to ask Imagine trying to lose a few pounds without ever stepping on the scale or trying to cut your cholesterol without ever getting it checked. Tens of millions of Americans are taking a similarly blind approach to their money. Everyone wants their finances to be in good shape, but less than half of all Americans even know their credit score. That's not good — a bad credit score can mean a high-interest loan that costs you thousands and thousands of dollars over the course of a lifetime. But it's not just laziness. Private companies o
  11. I sent a 623 Letter To Bank and They Responded account was sold another bank. Direct Merchants Bank was who I filed dispute with. Got a letter back from HSBC stating account sold to a JBD, They ask me to direct inquiries to the JBD. What now? I was disputing the debt that appeared on my credit profile, the amount and date of last payment. Help!
  12. I check my CR's online every 4 months. I have copies of my reports going back 15 years. While applying for a new apartment, I was informed I had to pay 2 months upfront due to negative on credit. I said "What are you talking about?" They said there was a bill for $698 outstanding. It was a medical bill. In May, I found that 5 year old medical bill (that was paid) still reporting on Equifax only. Disputed, was deleted. Checked Experian yesteday. Found collection for $10,090 backdated to 2010. Disputed immediately. Called Experian today, asked how this is possible? Experian said Co
  13. I've noticed that Experian is the toughest CRA to make disputes by far. First, they don't let you dispute addresses which is what I like to start off with. They don't allow addresses to be disputed online and they don't allow you to do it over the phone either. What they tell you on the phone is that they won't remove them because a former or current creditor has that address listed for you. I tell them that they are incorrect then because I never lived there...and they say I would have to contact the creditor...crazy! Further, if they ever verify a credit item you dispute...it is GOLD i
  14. I am in a dispute with one of the three major credit bureaus. In my research for case law and supporting documentation for what I believe are numerous FCRA violations, I came across this very helpful report from the National Consumer Law Center entitled: "Automated Injustice: How A Mechanized Dispute System Frustrates Consumers Seeking To Fix Errors In Their Credit Reports." The report breaks down the process by which Experian, Equifax and TransUnion handles consumer disputes for investigation or re-investigation, how and where they outsource the process to, the automated systems involved,
  15. I sent a CMRRR dispute to TU and received my credit report. The letter states, “Enclosed is the TransUnion Personal Credit Report that you requested.” The only thing is, I didn’t request my CR. I sent TU a dispute letter. A few months ago, I experienced the same thing with EXP. Is this some new, stall tactic? I didn’t respond to EXP and the disputed item was deleted. I don’t plan on responding to TU but wanted to see if this is happening to anyone else? Recently, I received 3 CMRRR, green cards, the bureaus conveniently forgot to date stamp. Luckily, I have my receipts and was able to trac
  16. They are refusing to re-investigate TLs unless I have new info. Any way to get around this?
  17. Hi, I'm been doing a little reading on this but I'm still unsure as to how to go about this, so I'm hoping someone here can help me. A few months ago, I pulled up my credit report and realized there were two entries on it from a certain telephone company. I disputed the entries with all three credit bureaus; they all came back verified. I then called the telephone company, and was told that these accounts were 'at a zero balance' and that they did not have any original records on them. I did get the representative's name, customer ID, and date/time of call (I take good notes! lol), so he
  18. Hello Everyone, This is my first post and I will try to make it short and clear. I have been disputing accounts with experian and right now I am at the Methhod of Verification stage. I sent letters certified mail and shows they have been delivered. My question is ths: How long do they ACTUALLY have to supply results back to you? is it 15 days or 30 days? The reason I ask is because their website states: "We ask the source to check their records to verify all of the information regarding the item you questioned, and report back to us within 30 days of the date that we received your request
  19. I have a collection agency reporting an alleged debt on my credit report. This has been reporting by them for a couple of years. Yesterday I received a credit alert that new potentially derogatory information has posted to my credit file. When I looked at my credit report the new information was the same alleged account that the colllecction agency had already been reporting. Will this new reporting affect my credit score? Can a collection agency re- report the same infformation?
  20. I have been doing credit repair for a little bit, and done pretty well. I have disputed my former mortgage with all 3 credit bureaus - I was laid off and CitiMortgage started foreclosure proceedings, but I sold the house and paid off the mortgage in full prior to foreclosure. Transunion and Equifax show the account as Paid and 120 Days Late... I can live with that, it's the truth. Experian shows the Pay Status as Foreclosure, and the Payment history shows "RF" (Foreclosure) in Nov 2008 when I paid off the loan. They've supposedly verified and validated (seperately) the information.
  21. Great investigative reporting by 60 Minutes on the credit bureau industry, and their impact on U.S. consumers. Please see: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50140748n
  22. Hi, I am disputing a medical collection on my credit reports. While I am disputing with the original creditor because of billing errors, I am also questioning how this is posted to my credit reports, and how the information may potentially be shared with others. My TransUnion report shows the collection listing in this fashion - Original Creditor: Med 1 02 - and then shows the medical provider's name and the type of physician. I am under the impression that the code Med 1 02 puts a privacy block on the information that follows per HIPAA regulations. Can anyone confirm this? The same list
  23. I disputed on Experian and got two Equable Ascent Financial and one from Bay Area Credit. I have a long way to go but glad that three are gone!
