  1. I'm new here & apologize in advance for any errors/Mis-Postings. I've also been perusing for a few days & now it is time I chime in. First, I APPRECIATE all your hard work and information available on this site. I'm quite impressed & grateful that there are so many people willing to take the time to help others. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE GREAT JOB :) Anyway, I've rebuilt myself up after my "7-10 year penalty" due to becoming disabled & after a house fire in 2007. Long story short, it took alot of hard work and A LOT MORE PATIENCE/TIME!!! After re-establishing to the point I am in the midper (mid & a tad North of the700's ), on 02/15/2014 I got an alert that a "New Collection Account has posted to my CR". About an hour later, I got another one from CK for the same thing. So I log in, I see I've LOST 45 points, and I immediately do a CR pull to find out more on this "Pinnacle" place. I've done alot of searching on this "Factoring Company" nonsense, as well as Pinnacle, as well as what letters to write but again, and PLEASE do not be irritated, however I just have NO idea how to even begin to tackle this. I've never seen it happen before and I have NO CLUE who the OC would even be (or who they bought this from if Pinnacle is the OC). No letters, no nothing - just an IQ from 12/27/13 from Pinnacle, then it hit on 02/16. None of this makes sense & I am in a COMPLETE panic over what my creditors will do to me as a result of the score dropping due to, of all things, a BRAND NEW collection account that has been RE-AGED from the looks of things. I know that's an FCRA no-no, and I know the lack of ANY correspondence is also a no-no. This could not have come at a worse time as well as I'm in the midst of a mortgage process & when the lender catches wind of it, I GUARANTEE all deals will be off. Given the intensity of the situation, and before I send off my 3-page Validation to Pinnacle (based on § 807(11) - lack of required disclosure from a debt collector, § 807(8) communicating info which is known to be false, § 809 - standard stuff, and § 623 - reporting w/knowledge of errors et.al., and finally a § 623 dispute w/the CRA's. I am using that § 807(11) since even though there has been no "communication", they have now "communicated" via a third party, i.e. the CRA's, Certainly I am no expert however I have had my fair share of all this too - and knowledge is power - but this whole "Factoring Company" nonsense has thrown me for a loop. Looking through these forums, they're a JDB/CA, but apparently utilizing the "Factoring" aspect allows em' to report a WHOLE lot more - to which they are - as a revolving account impacting my AAOA, Util, and history. I'm at a total loss and again, I apologize for all this as I admit I'm STUCK!!! The TL appears as follows: PINNACLE CREDIT SERVICES L PO Box 640 Hopkins, MN 55343-0640 (952) 939-8100 Account Number: OK05XXXX Current Status: At least 120 Days or More Than Four Payments Past Due Account Owner: Individual Account. High Credit: $1,253 Type of Account : Revolving Credit Limit: N/A Terms Duration: Terms Frequency: Monthly Date Opened: 12/20/2013 Balance: $1,253 Date Reported: 02/15/2014 Amount Past Due: $1,253 Date of Last Payment: Actual Payment Amount: $0 Scheduled Payment Amount: $0 Date of Last Activity: N/A Date Major Delinquency First Reported: 02/2014 Months Reviewed: 3 Creditor Classification: Factoring Company Activity Description: N/A Charge Off Amount: $0 Deferred Payment Start Date: Balloon Payment Amount: $0 Balloon Payment Date: Date Closed: Type of Loan: yes Date of First Delinquency: 12/2013 Comments: Collection account 81-Month Payment History No 81-Month Payment Data available for display. I really appreciate it in advance, I honestly do not know what else to say/do at this point, but I want to utilize the rest of the weekend to attack this come Monday morning. Thanks again everyone & I hate to even ask for help but I've tried & tried only to start getting more confused. Take care
  2. Does it say somewhere in the FCRA and/or the FDCPA that charged-off unsecured credit card debt can't be charged off? If so, can you point it out to me because I can't find it in there?
