Mailing in disputes versus online disputes

Recommended Posts

I've done my disputes online with a little success. Any opinions on the value of disputing via the mail?

Thanks in advance

I did a "mass mailing" and "mass online" submission. Then after deletes started to happen, I focused on the ones that were not deleted initally and started to mail new disputes etc.

 

So far, I have lost 14 "baddies" !

 

I am not stopping until I get them all gone!

 

So, my personal suggestion.......start online and then follow thru with actual USPS mailings.

 

Good luck to you on your "adventure".

I've said it many times before

 

 

when you dispute online, you're eliminating ALL human contact with your dispute...

 

you're doing ALL the work for the CRA

 

 

you're making it EASIER for the CA/OC/CRA to verify the information

I have taken the advice of the Vets here, Thanks Pryan67, and the proof is in the Puddin'. All disputes to CRA's Certified Mail and CA disputes CMRR. See my signature at the bottom for the Puddin' !!! :D

 

I love this place.

My first disputes I did via online, but after that I go thru the mail. Did have some suggest but mine are all from 2001 and early 2002.

How does disputing online make it easier for them to verify?

 

 

let's see...

 

you're inputting it into the CRA's system for them

 

you're breaking it down into a 2 digit code for them

 

you're transmitting it to the OC/CA for them

 

you're letting them know to reply via email (usually) for them

 

 

 

what's left for them to do?

i havent used online, but i like the fact that i have hard copies of the paper trail.

 

not that i wouldnt print and make copies online, but the letters are more satisfying when you that DELETED and a copy of thew new CR.

I disputed online for quite some time and things came back verified within a few days. I have much better luck if I send them in.

Won't that stuff happen anyway even if you mail it in? Might take a bit longer but it's all the same in the end right?

 

I'm not trying to argue with you, just trying to understand.

a bit longer could mean the difference between getting a delete and having it verified...

 

if you mail it in, here's what happens:

 

1. person picks it up and brings it to the mail room- 1 day

2. item is opened and sorted by computer - 1 day

3. item is scanned in by computer (if possible) and broken down into the two digit code - 1 day

4. item is transmitted and response is waited for - 1 day up to 27

5. response is received by the CRA...

 

 

 

so we're looking at realistically 5 days minumum...compared to 30 seconds

 

 

 

in addition, where's your proof when you dispute online? A printout?

 

What do you want that printout to say? I'll produce one in about 30 seconds...and the CRAs and their attorneys know it...so they'd get any such print out tossed if it got to court

 

 

 

what I beleive it boils down to is that some people like the convenience of online (meanign they're lazy...no offense meant..I'm lazy too...unless it matters, like in credit repair)

 

if it's not worth the few extra minutes and under 5 bucks to fix your credit...maybe those people should rethink if they want to bother

seeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

 

what did I say.

 

took ya a while to get there, probably take a while to fix it.

 

Patience.

 

Instant gratuity in this avenue ain't all it's cracked up to be.

So does that mean it's five possible days off your 30 day period?

 

(sorry for being so clueless, I'm almost getting it!)

 

Yep and the less time they have the better!!!!

you're looking at it the wrong way...

 

it's at LEAST 5 days...

 

instead of 30 seconds

 

 

 

how much does the CRA pay a consumer to do their work for them? Is it a good living? If so, maybe I'll do it that way
