I have 2 medical collections for 2 different providers being reported to Experian and TransUnion by the same CA and a 3rd collection with Equifax with a different CA.
I started the HIPAA dispute programs for all them with these results:
TransUnion: both items were deleted Experian: both items were verified with a note to contact the CA for more info Equifax: No Response at all and no deletion
I started the HIPAA dispute program for the Experian collections but skipped the 2nd step of Medical DV to the CA by mistake. Instead, I sent money order payments to both the OC's using the HIPAA letter and have copies of the deposited and canceled money orders from my bank. The collections have not been deleted and I haven't receive a response from the OC's at all.
Knowing the I missed the DV step with the CA, what should I do now to continue the process for getting the Experian entries deleted?
For the Equifax entry with no response, do I just start over again?
I received a collection letter from a law firm called "Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLC". It says they are attempting to collect a debt for the PA Office of Inspector General, and it says "Welfare Overpayment". I'm unsure of what this is about, nor do I know any details other than the amount due which is over $2k.
The letter also mentions "this is not a threat to file a lawsuit. At this time, no attorney has personally reviewed the particular circumstances of your account," and it asks for me to call a certain person at the company and gives a phone number.
1. Since this doesn't mention a 30 day notice, should I still send a DV letter? If not, what is my next step?
2. Does anyone know what the SOL (if any) would be in PA for a collections concerning "welfare overpayments"?
Thank you much!
I had a bad streak and my Capital One account was charged off and placed with Midland. 1k balance went to 7k and the terms they propose are laughable. I can dispute, but my biggest priorities are avoiding suit/garnishment and short term credit score improvement. Is it best to try to make a payment plan, dispute, or ignore? Is there another option I'm missing?
