Suit dropped by PRA but still reporting as collections


Recommended Posts

So I would appreciate some assistance in this matter if possible.   I had another PRA suit, but this time I paid an attorney to fight and PRA dropped the suit.  I have attached letter from court.  They are still reporting this debt on my credit reports even though they dropped suit. This debt will be 4 years old as of March 1 2019 which is when I made my last payment on this credit card.  Can someone please advise a logical next step?  How do you go about fighting credit card debt that is past the 4 year SOL in Texas?

Because the case was not decided on the merits or dismissed with prejudice, it was not determined to not be your debt - just that they decided they would not pursue it.

They can legally report this debt to the CRAs, and because the CRAs use a 7-year SOL for reporting and not the 4-year Texas collection SOL, it can legally remain on your report for 3 more years.

You can try disputing the debt with the CRAs and see if they remove it, or possibly commit an FCRA/FDCPA violation, but as I said, there is nothing inherently illegal about them *accurately* reporting this debt.
