My Credit Repair MISSION success & failures


Recommended Posts

i've been totally inspired by others posting their struggles in one central location. when i started credit repair i never thought i would have enough info to centralize it in one post. boy was i wrong! this post is for me to track my journey, share my success, failures, and weaknesses with others, and hopefully get some good advice to keep me on track. most importantly eliminate having word, excel, adobe, & cic open at one time ;)

GC Svc's green card return dated 11/19/07 tmw 30 days sent simple please validate ltr, is not showing on my rpt, but NCO is updating on my rpt i will dispute the tl with NCO i think it's on assignment and not sold so 2 CA's can and are collecting :confused: still confused figure out kinks by 12/30/07 debt still in SOL cheap $300 bucks

RJM green card return dated 11/05/07 did not sign or date card over 30 days Wamu debt still in SOL cheap $200 bucks, Wamu did not rpt to chex or my credit rpts, so i might have to PFD if they can validate

3/2006 Progressive Policy Cancellation ltr 3/06 never responded it hit my credit rpt $90 bucks will deal with it around 1/15/07

6/2005 3 City Parking tickets from 6/2005 still unpaid $26 each. have not shown up on rpts yet. i have know strategy to resolve this issue, the cost from 2005 has probably more then tripled, and the license plate on the car is not my car, but could be neighbors or my old rent-a-car unsure. Scared of a public record so i'm in limbo...wait on this tba

11/07 student loan ltr threatening to garnish wages, entered rehab doesn't seem promising. if i quit b4 garnishment can DOE garnish unemployment in cali? focus on this answer around 6/08 when rehab is complete

12/24/07 prog mgmt i rec'vd dunning saying they ran my rpt. dv'ng them now---"they are so out of pocket"! OC validated this $150 debt by sending a statement on letterhead-still haven't paid it yet though-BUT I will PFD it's already on my credit report

5/10/08 pentagroup financial dunning for Sprint- I asked GC Services to validate this debt 11/07 now pentagroup has it.

might have to contact BBB to settle with Wachovia

i've recently started dealing with CRA's & CA's. but i've dealt with BBB, for several years. in 2003 HP sent me a $1899 refund check for my lap top being defective after dozens of phone calls & emails, 7 letters, & sending the laptop back to HP tech support 5 times. contacted BBB one time got results.

2004 public storage dented my refrigerator door i had insurance with them, but they were trying to hoodwink me, contacted BBB received check for $900 just to replace the door.

2005 mall jeweler wouldn't let me return a purchase contacted BBB the jeweler gave b.s. excuse, but i was able to return the item.

2007 just recently my fiancee and i moved (moving again already) rented a uhaul & the asshats were so super RUDE, incompetent, & illegitimate. they over charged us on gas, i refused so they tried to stick extra mileage on us. contacted BBB and Uhaul headquarters called me promised a check & discount coupon. received $32 refund check & $20 discount coupon

12/19/07 Called Bank

per csr/$178.77 overdrawn more than 30days counts as account abuse June 28, 2004 to August 17, 2004

• s/w 2:23pmCsr Lelah

• Would not provide identifying info like last name, last name initial, or employee id, would not even give me the call ctr’s location

• Rushy, talks over u, very rude

• Says I owe $178.77 for account being overdrawn more than 30days and that counts as account abuse. Overdrawn from June 28, 2004 to August 17, 2004

• Lelah very rudely claims they sent multiple letters, I informed her I don’t recall letters from so long ago

• Gave wrong info. claimed I opened my acct. at my home branch which I didn't

• Could not/would not tell me when I originally opened acct.

• 2:26pm placed on hold to wait for mgr at 2:35pm

They can rpt u for acct. abuse, but can’t give accurate information on your account!

• s/w supervisor Tricia @ 2:37pm didn’t know much about rpt'g to chex, but wasn’t rude.

• Tricia says they will only update the rpt to say paid acct. abuser & will not remove until 5 year period is up

• Per Tricia it must rpt for 5 years. I asked if that was a law she said yes. SO WRONG!

• Per Tricia they have no other code for overdrawn acct. besides acct. abuser. HMM

Troubleshoot dispute tactics middle of 1/2008 refer to ockinltrinfo

•Dispute with chex on current listing wait 30, if they verify dispute with bank asking for investigation & payment history. (from conversation with csr i don't think they have my payment history anymore, she couldn't tell me anything).

12/21/07 received 4 ltrs from EDD regarding overpayment of my 2006 insurance. this is really bogus, but i have to deal with it. this may pause my credit repair journey, because the debt is so high. need to look Oprah's debt diet & research more options. Won this case for about $7000 :-) ! Then was slapped with a $600 judgment in a faraway court, and ofcourse they didn't follow due process, but I can't get to the judge to prove it! :-( My first judgment...

  • Checksys: I am going to wait until 2009 to get a checking acct--> i will be removed from chexsys by then. My savings acct will do for a year.
  • Pos T.L.'s: I want to buy a cheap $8000 car hope that will help build pos t.l.'s. future dated buying a home with the high possibility of me not getting married, so buying a vehicle will not hurt my income to debt ratio --> no husband no house :(
  • Reapply for Orchard was denied and hit with hard inq. i'm like for dummies with building pos t.l.'s NEED another pos t.l. that reports to all 3, easy to obtain, & i qualify for???
  • CA's: received Dunning from Afni my most valued creditor for a discounted $48.88 debt that i have no clue about WOW what a deal. --> sending DV today the name on the dunning has an incorrect last name go figure!

4/08 Pentagroup - For sprint shows same account No. as the GC services dunning letter from 11/07, yet these asshats have not validated the debt. The irony is the CA that put this neg on my credit rpt is NCO.

5/08 Magazine subscription - threatening to further collections. I never signed up for this Magazine. I think their crazy! sending them a DV today this really sucks, who wants to pay the $5 CMRR just to tell these magazine cons to go to hedouble hockey sticks.

Seriously? A magazine subscription is reporting to your CRs? Wow.

I would believe it... Two out of the five CA's on the GF's CR are for magazines and a book club... Total is less than $30 for the two of them...

You could end up spending more money to USPS than to pay them... But without a PFD... I would not send them a penny...
