  1. These are the statements that concern me in this letter. "The statement “120 days past due” is generally how a charged off account is defined by the credit bureaus" ---I have never heard of this....Is this legal? "The term “open” does not literally mean that the account is open." ---This is confusing as well if it is not open then it is closed right?
  2. I filed a complaint with the BBB against LVNV for listing an account as "open" and "120 days past due". They did not respond to my validation request. I forwarded copies of green cards to the BBB. I also requested that all communications be in writing. I did request no telephone contact. This is their response to the BBB. I am not sure how to reply to this letter. Thanks for any help. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Better Business Bureau of Upstate South Carolina 408 North Church Street, Suite C Greenville, SC 29601-2164 Phone: (864)242-5052 | Fax: (864)271-9802 info@upstatesc.bbb.org Consumer Anywhere, USA 01/2012 DearConsumer : Thismessage is in regard to your complaint submitted on 12/2011 against ResurgentCapital Services LP. Your complaint was assigned ID. Thebusiness has sent the BBB a message regarding this complaint, and we arepassing it on to you. The contents of this message are below or attached.Please respond to this message at your first convenience. Regards, BBB Representative Dispute Resolution Director MESSAGEFROM BUSINESS: January 2012 BBBRepresentative 408N. Church St. Suite C Greenville,SC 29601-2164 RE: Consumer: PreviousCreditor: CurrentOwner: LVNV Funding LLC AccountNumber: ReferenceNumber: CurrentBalance: Dear BBB Representative: This letter is in response to your correspondence regardingthe above referenced account. LVNV Funding LLC (“LVNV”) currently owns accountnumber. Resurgent Capital Services L.P. (“Resurgent”) is the master servicer ofaccounts owned by LVNV. The account was previously sold by A Creditor and atthat time the balance on this account was $1,000. As of the date of thiscommunication, the account balance is $2,500. Because interest, payments,credits, fees, and/or other permissible charges can continue to cause theaccount balance to vary from day to day, you should contact us at 888-665-0374to determine the exact balance. Please review the following accountinformation: 1. ACreditor advised that this account originated and was opened with Merchant A. 2. Thisaccount charged off with a balance of $750. 3. Nopayments have been received on this account since LVNV’s acquisition in 2007. It appears there is some confusion regarding the creditbureau reporting of this account. The term “open” does not literally mean thatthe account is open. This is a common area of confusion for our customers. Inaccordance with the Metro 2 credit reporting guidelines, created by theConsumer Data Industry Association, factoring companies are required to reportaccounts with a designation of “open” in the portfolio type field. This meansthat the entire balance is due at one time. This is the nature of a charged offaccount. The entire balance is past due; therefore, the entire balance is dueat any given time. In most cases, creditors charge off accounts once they are120 days or more past due/delinquent. The statement “120 days past due” isgenerally how a charged off account is defined by the credit bureaus. Due tothe account being charged off, the bureaus still report it as 120 days pastdue. This comment is added by the bureaus to further define the account;therefore, this statement cannot be altered. Please be advised Resurgent did not provide validation ofdebt in response to Consumer’s request due to the fact that his letter requestedthat we cease telephone contact with him. Accordingly, this account is in acease status, which results in no contact, written or otherwise, fromResurgent. In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”),if an agency that is reporting an account to the consumer reporting agenciesreceives information that changes the existing status of that account, theagency must report such changes to the consumer reporting agencies. The FCRArequires that accurate and complete information be provided to consumerreporting agencies. Failure to report updated information, including paid willcause an inaccurate reflection of the status of existing reported accounts,which violates the FCRA. Based on the previous information, the tradeline willnot be deleted; however, it is being reported as disputed to the three majorconsumer reporting agencies. Enclosed is a bill statement on file for this account. If,after review of the above referenced information and enclosed bill statement theconsumer believes this account is fraudulent, a complete police/incident reportregarding the fraud, or a notarized fraud or identity theft affidavit (blankforms are available at the FTC’s website: www.ftc.gov/idtheft) will help usresolve this complaint. If this account was paid or settled in full, thesettlement offer, cancelled check(s), and/or confirmation of payment in fullwould help us resolve this complaint. In addition, if Consumer has anycorrespondence to/from Creditor A concerning his dispute, it may help with ourinvestigation, so please have him forward it to: Compliance Department or Fax:866-467-0918 P.O. Box 10497 Greenville, SC 29603 If we do not receive additional information from you within45 days of the date this letter is received, then we will assume this disputeis resolved. If you have any further questions, comments or concerns, pleasecontact Customer Service at 888-665-0374. Sincerely, P. Holladay Compliance Department Resurgent Capital Services L.P. Enclosure
  3. Thanks for the replies. Just wandering if I should call them.
  4. The funny thing is that I have have at least 10 Visa/Mastercards, 4 that report a balance. A car loan and a mortgage are also reporting. Utilization is 12% .My average age of credit is 8 years according to experian. I am not sure where they got this information. My oldest card reporting is 18 years old. This is why it seems so strange to me.

  7. I would suggest joining a local credit union. They are much easier to work with. The fees are considerably less. Avoid places that charge unreasonable fees Here is a link to search for one: http://www.creditunionsonline.com/ or you can google search credit unions with your zip. Best of luck.
  8. Any idea on their approval standards? Is it worth a pul for those without a 700 score?
  9. Perhaps the topic was too hot to handle on CB?
  10. As the OP for the PSECU thread, I would also like to know why it no longer exist. I didn't think it revealed a patented process for joining, I could be wrong. If needed, I can repost some of my info if you have any questions.

  15. EX has to be unfrozen I believe. Mine was also frozen and I had to thaw prior to becoming a member. They called me and asked to unfreeze it. Unfortunately they wouldn't pull from TU or Equifax. One downside I suppose.
