  1. Isn’t that what that senator was doing at airport restrooms? It’s code for uh... applying for the packer opening at the fudge warehouse.
  2. I know FDCPA violation damages are limited to 1,000.00 even if every paragraph is violated. I can’t get a straight answer by reading the FCRA if it’s the same way or per violation without proving actual damages? Also, bonus question, is a CRA still in violation if they report incorrect data from a furnisher? Can a CRA place then blame on the furnisher? Basically, the CRA says, “we are only reporting what they report to us, if you have a problem, take it up with them.” ME: OK, fine, but I just proved to you why it’s incorrect. CRA: we don’t care
  3. I’m glad you’re doing better! What is the DOFD on the original accounts that are now in collection? What is the SOL in the state you reside? A paid collection is just that, a collection that will report paid. Some new FICO models ignore paid collections but typically for scoring other than general consumer credit. You can pay them but it won’t help you. You need them to go away. If they are old, maybe you can settle for less and negotiate a PFD. Get any agreement in writing first though. I would not try anything until you get a plan in place. ScumOne, I mean CreditOne is difficult to make go away, they get off on shitting up your CR. I’ve seen people do it but I don’t have any experience with them or GettingFingered. Do you have your original agreements with them?
  4. The CU giveth, the CU taketh away. They can do it, you likely agreed to it. Is your payroll deposited to this CU as well? Might want to think about that. I would be on the phone trying to make a deal with them, ask for an email address and follow up in writing.
  5. My first question to you is aside from trying to build credit again, have you put a financial plan in place? Has the situation changed today vs where you were months or even a few years ago that landed your credit report in the hot seat it is in today? The credit accounts you have listed are predatory vultures imho. Why were you enticed by expensive forms of credit that bring no benefit to you? Are the auto loans predatory? Or subprime? Depending on the age of the loan, 1-2% was not hard to achieve 3-5 years ago. If they are 10,12,15+%, I would look at paying them off ASAP or selling them if you are not to upside down. I would focus more more on making sure my overall financial health and plan are in order than rushing out to get more credit.
  6. Right at the first of the year I had a collections account appear on my TU and EX. It has since been removed but it caused me to drop from the low 700’s to the low 600’s. Over 100 point drop. Nothing else negative is on my reports.
  7. So, PotO.. I called Synchrony today. The ‭(877) 379-8175‬ number. Talked to a guy on the phone and I explained what deal was. I told him that the CLD letter that I received just this month listed reasons and a score from TU dated back in Feburary. He acted like he didn’t really care about any of that really. But he kept asking if I wanted to apply for a CLI. I replied of course but if your not looking at current data then it’s not worth my time. He said that he can see what it is at this time. And he said OK, what do you want me to work for and I did exactly what you said and replied 25K. He put me on hold for 5 and came back asking for a number to send a code to. They texted a code to my phone, I read it back and he put me on hold again and said that they would not do 25K on the card credit but put it back at 15 where it was. I said, fair enough and he asked, is there anything else I can help you with and I said “well, I do have one other account that was CLD and it’s still open” he asked for the account number and I read it off and he came back and asked what I wanted and I said.. 25K. I was on hold maybe a minute and he came back and said I have you approved for 18K. Wtf? That card was an account that was only 3500 that they chased down to the balance, just last week. Why not give me 18K on both? I will let it soak and call them back next month after it reports. Anyways, as much as I hate to stroke your already inflated sadistic EGO :), you were right. I feel rather pissed at myself for closing those other accounts now. 🤦🏻‍♂️
  8. I do know better and I didn’t take it personal at all and I hope PotO didn’t either, he is kind of funny.
  9. I had no idea you had such Synchrony Daddy issues. This thread has obviously touched on some type of deep rooted psychological trauma inside of you. Do you have this much PTSD for everything in your life or just for taking Synch buttsex like a champ?
  10. PotO, you jackhole. I’ve already said I understand why they did what they did. It still doesn’t mean I like it. While I appreciated being a SynchWhore for a while, I have plenty of other limits with other creditors that are more than I would ever be able justify the use of. I’m happy that you enjoy getting on your knees and servicing them. I hope they buy you some McDonalds or at least toss you a wet wipe after you stand up. That’s what truly makes me proud, how you take it with a smile on your face like a true champion. There are more folks than myself that agree that they suck.
  11. Haha! It’s like art, open for interpretation. 😉
  12. Well, they pissed me off. I reserve the right to whine if I want to. I’m not going to bow down to a creditor that crapped all over me for something that was not even within my control.
  13. I did get over it. I canceled all of them but two. They too will be gone by this summer. Just like you, they can pull about 9” of vacuum on my junk and call it a day.
  14. They ended up CLD’ing the one last decent limit card that I had with them this month. Syncs Home from 7,500 to balance of 1,200. The letter I received notifying me of it was using my score from February 21st, which was still impacted by the CA that no longer exists. I logged in, viewed my FICO score that had updated on the 4th of May and it was over 100 points higher than the score the decision was made upon. Apparently, while your score updates monthly, their internal review must be every three to six months. I understand their reasoning but it just really ticks me off. I have two cards with 0% promos running that I left open. I have closed the rest and will be closing the others as soon as I pay off the promotional purchases. I needed to simplify my credit profile anyways, this just accelerated it for me. Aside from the promotions, the cards really suck anyways. Regardless of that, they lost a good client but I’m just a small drop in a big bucket for them. Lesson learned.
  15. #1 - First and formost, as you have stated, answer the complaint - do not give them an easy win which is what they want. #2 - Consult with an attorney. #2.5 - Be very precise on SOL, make double sure that they are not trying to sue you on something that is not past it. Even a day or two matters. #3 - It’s likely that your original credit card agreement had an arbitration clause. If possible find that. Force them in to arbitration rather than small claims, they likely will back down and not persue it. Trust me when I say this works.
