Satisfied Judgement not reported

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Years ago my wife had a judgement against her that lead to her bank account being emptied and wages garnished until the judgement was satisfied.  It happens.

The collection company failed to report that the judgement was satisfied in 2014 and we are just now realizing it in 2016 because it is holding us up from buying a house.  

We have called them asking for it to be taken care of and are always routed to a messaging machine or promised that it'll be faxed where we asked only to have it not happen.

To me, from my research and according to the FDCPA, they responsible for providing misleading information about a debt and that has been affecting her credit for two years now.

What can we do to get this taken care of?  It appears that there is legal retribution for their carelessness.

Were the payments made to a debt collector or to the original creditor?

One thing that should be done right now is that the entry on the CR should be disputed with the CRAs.
