Good morning to all, I am currently working on repairing my credit with hopes of refinancing soon. I sent dispute letters to the 3 CRA's and these particular trade lines (2) came back "Verified" The dept of treasury is reporting 2 different balances with 2 different addresses. one shows as "Department of treasury" and the other shows "DPT Treasury" with 2 different addresses. I have been paying this through wage garnishment for the past 2 years as well as tax refund offset. They have not responded to validation requests. Can anyone tell me what my options are? The Garnishment is through Pioneer credit recovery The balance reported to TU is about half of what they are reporting to Equifax. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Hello I have some questions regarding my student loans. I know there are government loans and private loans. My government loans were garnished until a certain period of time, and then I proceeded to pay them off (on top of my garnishments). The private loans are held through Sallie Mae, and being that they're private they do not garnish. Instead, Sallie Mae has continued to hit me with very high interest rates at which are doubling and tripling my total amount due over the years. I can no longer run and hide, the more I hide the sooner my loans reach $100k mark. I am confused and not sure what to do, it seems if I start paying I will simply be paying the interest for years and years prior to even touching the principal amount due. Onto my question, and I have to ask because I don't know what to do. I have been told by many people that after 7 years and (3-4 months) private loans will fall off of my credit report. I am coming here to see if there is any truth to this and or what I should do to increase my score. I'm financially stable at this point and need to get the credit score addressed immediately for it is affecting many points in my life. If this means tackling the loans head on, then so be it. It will be a long while before they are paid, but if that's what needs done so be it. If you all tell me I should start paying them, will I see a increase in my score once I start making payments? Thanks all, sorry it's so brief but figured you didn't want a long read. Thank you all, if there is any information you need please let me know. Apprecaite any advice you can offer I'm simply looking for the most cost affective and best way to increase my score. Sadly I didn't even finish college due to a job offer at which I couldn't pass up and I am currently still employed with said company. Thanks all
