Okay, I went to the bank today where I used to have an account because I wanted a copy of an old statement to help with a collection-related issue.

 

Since it was taking the (very nice and helpful) teller awhile to get the right statement on the computer, I was chatting with her a bit. I mentioned (my mistake I guess!) that I was grateful to her for her help, and said something along the lines of "I'm sure it's actually been more than seven years since the date I made that last payment." [she was finding the date of it on the computer for me] "It should have been off my credit report right now but I think they re-aged the debt."

 

Her supervisor was standing nearby with her back to us, talking to another teller, but just then she stopped and turned to me with this dirty, sarcastic, smartypants look on her face and said "things do NOT fall off your credit report in seven years!"

 

Okay, CB'ers, have I misunderstood all along? Or was the bank supervisor lady being unnecessarily nosy and snotty? (or both? :P )

the bank lady is a moron. they do fall even sooner than 7 years but the max normally is 7 years 6 months.

 

That's what *I* thought! Thanks!

 

The 7 year rule is still in effect. I just checked. In some cases you may have to request it, but for the most part......they do drop off.

 

That's exactly what I wanted to tell her!

 

lemme guess... BofA? :D

 

:P nope, local credit union. :)

heh. that's my style as well, inside. But my mother in law always says "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" so I just went ahead and kept smiling... at the teller.

 

To the supervisor I said "well, regardless..." and finished my sentence. Witch.

I would have said:

 

"I'm sorry ma'am, I didn't realize I was speaking to you. If I gave you that impression, I apologize"

 

Would seem hardly appropriate when at a company doing business with that company and the person replying is the supervisor of the agent with whom the conversation is taking place

They are still the customer and that supervisor shouldnt have run her mouth when she wasnt even being spoken to. No one made her God especially when she isnt even being factual. I would have called her out for being a dipstick and not knowing her laws.

100% appropriate. Customer saying it, not the agent. Customer is always right, and I wouldn't even bank at a place with a manager like that. Not necessarily from being the "dipstick", but cannot deal with arrogance from those from which it should not come.

It seems that "The customer is always right" doesn't apply to bankers. More like the "Customer is always wrong" until proven otherwise. One gets the feeling they are less than warm these days unless you have banked there forever. Maybe its the times.

 

While I don't expect clerical and low level managers, unless they are underwriters, in banks to know the ins and outs of credit reporting, there is no reason to spout off about an area of expertise one doesn't actually have.

Funny thing is, I mentioned to one woman that my father-in law was a retired member of the board. She was extremely nice.

 

SHE was extremely nice.

 

Shouldn't have to name-drop to get a smile an a "thank you"!

Not sure about you all, but I HAD BETTER always be treated very nice at any place I bank; without any arrogance or condescending behavior at all. It is very simple to make a withdrawal and walk across the street.

 

A bank not much different than a fast food restaurant.

 

They ALL do the same thing.

Hm I bet their website has contact information for submitting comments.

 

Noooo, that's just my lack of coffee talking. Shame on me!

 

I find myself wondering if she's responsible for submitting things to CRAs for the bank, seeing as how it IS a credit union and they DO do all kinds of loans, lines of credit, and so on.

 

Frightening!
