YOUR "COLLECTION SCORE"

Recommended Posts

The CRA's sell a service to the OC's, JDB's, and CA's

 

it's a different score of your reports - based on whether the outstanding debts are more collectable or not.

 

the OC's used this to determine whether they should purse collection, or sell off the debt because it isn't collectable due to your other outstanding accounts, income, etc.

 

the JDB's and CA's subscribe to this service ,

 

it's similar to the credit monitering consumers subscribe to.

 

so if your name is in the database of accounts that they submit to the CRA for monitering - anytime you apply for credit

 

the collection score rises and the OC/ CA / JDB subscriber is is notified

 

and since you had to give your current address, salary and employer to apply for this credit,

 

it's factored into your "collection" score.

 

the CA/JDB gets that updated information too.

 

so if you have outstanding defaulted debts in collections or charge offs that have been sold

 

and are applying for new credit or a mortgage

 

it really doesn't look that good........................

 

if you are going fishing for collectors, I hope these accounts are past the legal SOL for your state

 

don't kick the bear.

 

Also, if you are trying to clean up your reports

 

you have the same problem -

 

this info ends up on your report and is given out to anyone that subscribes.

 

Opting out doesn't help if they haev a legitimate business need.

 

Want to learn more about it?

 

go to any CRA website and follow the links for businesses ( not for personal or consumers )

 

they outline all the different services they sell to help a creditor locate you and recover the debt.

 

 

and now you know the Other reason the Credit reporting industry exists

 

 

 

Please don't post any of the CRA's links here on the board -

 

& there is no need to since these are so easy to get to.

Used to be that consumers didn't even have access to thier own reports.

 

congress had to pass a law ( FCRA)

 

wonder why the CRA's didn't object all that much?

 

in order to dispute, you have to positively ID yourself

 

give your new address, SS# and a utility bill to prove it.

 

which they then turn around and could sell that info /

 

the FCRA was a win win for the CRA's, OC's and the CA's.

Its funny how they're in on it together. Ive looked at their business offers and they have several levels depending on what the client wants. Another reason why they're able to "verify" so quickly.

Credit reporting was never developed for JQPublic

 

it was always set up for the business aspect, and has been that way for a long, long time

 

the CDIA sets the standards for credit reporting and developed all the std computer codes for EOscar.

 

ever though each CRA is slightly differnt, they all belong to the CDIA.

 

 

About CDIA

Membership: Over 200 American credit reporting agencies, mortgage reporting companies, collection services companies, check services companies, tenant screening companies and employment reporting companies.

 

so there are banks & collection agencies that help write the reporting standards.

 

wonder why it generally takes a well written ITS letter to get a CA deleted off your report?

I dont think I need to wonder any longer. There are some CA's Ive been fighting for years. I wish I had kept my old CR's so I could prove their false reporting... but I didnt, so I wont cry over spilled milk... I will just pull out the CB ammo I have learned/learn and use it to make my situation a better one..with hopes to never return to credit time out...

CDIA has this passage about:

 

Implementing the New Risk-Based Pricing Regulation

 

Due to go into effect on Jan 2011.

 

I found the gov document for it, it's 62 pages long. Is this going to move into the required reading category?

 

(I'm never going to get out of the newbie section...lol)

 

http://edocket.acces...df/E9-30678.pdf

 

sort of related, but really belongs in it's own catagory - there is probably another thread on CB.

 

if you were denied credit, or recieved less than favorable terms, under the FCRA

 

the lender or employer was required to give you an adverse notice

 

this seem to regulate what kind of terms they offer you -

 

in other words, they are going to set tiers for didferent scores.

 

and tell you a bit more exactly why you get a 29% interest rate., while some one else gets 15%

 

but yes, the CDIA also updates the reporting standards based on new goverment regulations.

So people make money the lower your score is, because they can charge you a higher rate of interest. There is no incentive to correct any information. The more mistakes to keep reporting, the more secure the CRAs.

welcome to enlightenment.

 

there is a balance/ tipping point to this

 

if everyone has low scores there comes a point where a majority could switch over to cash, and to HH with getting a loan.

 

if the banks aren't making any loans or issuing CC's, because everyones scores suck

 

then less need for CRA's or CA's -

 

that's why they occasionally revise the scoring models.....

 

and why every model is different

Yeah. I can't believe this crap. I have been wondering why these CAs have Bern coming out the woodworks since I am getting on my feet and paying my debts. O think this whole industry is slanted against the regular consumer.

I was noticing so many posts over the past few years -

 

- like "why do the CA's pop up when I applied for a; CC, mortgage, loan"

 

or "tried to clean up my report"

 

so I did a little bit research @ the CRA's websites.

 

OUCH.

Yes, the real big rock you want to turn over is a mortgage app. They will come out of hiding for a mortgage app. It's important, when you think you are done, and everything is clean, app for one of the online mortgage companies to draw them out and see who's laying in wait.

you don't have to update anything with the CRA's

 

if you file a change of adress with your CC or bank,

 

or apply for a CC or a loan

 

the OC will do it for you.

I just got my Exp report after my latest disputes. It has my new land line number on it. I don't even know it. The only calls are from CAs. I feel like I can't even keep up with them. My collection score must be crazy high because they are coming out through the woodworks

It's also because there is activity - when you dispute, they know you are paying attention to your credit for some reason, and they start crawling out from under their rocks.

How do the CRA's know to report to? Does it go by what's on your reports or do the CA's & OC's subscribe to the service using your name, SS & addresses info regardless if it has fallen off your report or not.

go to one of the CRA's websites and click on the "For businesses" tabs

 

the CA's buys one of these services from the CRA

 

I don't know all the specific details on these services, because I never worked for a CA........

 

however, basically -

 

the CA's send thru a list of names and OC accounts to the CRA's

 

and the CRA's send them all the information on those names/accounts

 

they also will notify the CA of any changes to your file.

 

just like consumers subscribe to a credit monitering service,

 

the CA's can also monitor your report changes

Both. Do a search for "collection triggers" - they sell lists if you are not opted out. They also sell subscriptions, where a creditor can submit a list of individuals they want monitored. Opting out doesn't stop that kind of monitoring. They have to have an account of yours for it to be legal.
