Why Chat Repo Letter Question

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm new to Credit Boards, so please be kind. To give you a little background, back in 2007, I was laid of as part of a corporate buyout, which left me without income for 6 months. I eventually found a new position, which required relocating to another state. Thankfully, I've been happily employed with my new company for the past 6 years. However, as a result of my unemployment, I had two auto loans that were reposessed in Sept & Oct, 2007. Loan #1 is reporting a deficiency balance of $11,382. Loan #2 is reporting a deficiency balance of $16,798. Both are reporting active lates each month, which is why they are hurting my credit report so much. They are both past the SOL (which is 6 years, both in the state of Repo and my current state). I verified the DOFDs with the OCs, and they are set to fall off my credit report in April & May, 2014. However, my wife and I would love to get these off my report sooner, so we can think about purchasing a home while interest rates are low. These two trade lines are keeping us from qualifying.

 

Here's how they look on my CRAs:

 

1. Nissan-Infinity LT

(address, phone)

(account #)

(address id#)

Date Opened: 4/2006

First Reported: 4/2006

Date of Status: 11/2010

Type: Auto Lease

Term: 39 months

Monthly Payment: Not Reported

Credit Limit or Original Amount: $27,272

High Balance: Not Reported

Recent Balance: $11,382 as of 5/2013

Status: Account charged off, $11,382 written off. This account is scheduled to continue on record until April, 2014.

Creditors Statement: Involuntary Reposession/Balance Owing

 

2. US Bank

(address, phone)

(account #)

(address id#)

Date Opened: 6/2006

First Reported: 6/2006

Date of Status: 7/2008

Type: Auto Lease

Term: 48 months

Monthly Payment: Not Reported

Credit Limit or Original Amount: $39,797

High Balance: Not Reported

Recent Balance: $16,798 as of Jan, 2013

Status: Account charged off, $9,312 written off. $2,345 past due as of Jan, 2013. This account is scheduled to continue on record until May, 2014.

 

I'd love to dispute these using Why Chat's guidelines. I've opted out, deleted as many old addresses as I could, & pulled carfax reports. Now I'm not sure which process is the best under my circumstances. Should I dispute these using Why Chat's Repo Letter or Why Chat's SOL Letter? In your opinion, which would have the fastest results? I'd like to get these off as quickly as possible.

 

Thanks in advance for all your help.

      I sent my letter to remove my old addresses to all three Credit Bureaus. I got a response from Experian today (Originally sent 12/27/14), and I thought. Great! I can do my disputes now.
       
      Not so fast.
       
       
      via letter today:
       
      We store information as it sent to us by your credit grantors or from information contained in public records. One or more sources of information reported the address you questioned and it is a part of your credit history.
       
      If you believe an address in your credit report is inaccurate, you may want to contact the source of the information directly. Please contact us by phone if you need additional assistance to determine the specific sources of particular address information on your credit report.
       
      You will not receive this explanation again if you dispute this same item within the next 30 days.
       
      Sincerely,
      Experian
       
       
      This was the body of my letter to experian:
       
       
      Experian National Consumer Assistance Center
      P.O. Box 4500
      Allen, TX 75013

      Dear Sir or Madam,

      Enclosed is verification of my identity and the address information page from a recent credit report.

      As of this month I have a fraud alert with all three major Credit Bureaus. It has not stopped some of the fraudulent activity on some of my bureau accounts.

      I am requesting that all previous addresses be removed from my Credit Report.

      My only address listing would be the current address (with verification enclosed)

      All previous addresses are highlighted in orange and numbered on my report address information page.

      I hope you have or had a great New Year!

      Thank you for your time,


      What should I do next? I got back a clean MIB report in the mail. I have the paper from transunion with all of my medical accounts showing removed, and I have an itemized statement from CA that I had to get in person from them. It has my first and last name spelled wrong. The address listed is the same as one of my previous addresses and the DOB matches from my report.

      Should I send in evidence for a dispute. Or fight for address removal?

      I'm currently delinquent on my Auto-loan with M&T Bank and currently is out for reposession. I just spoke to the manager and looking to do a voluntary Repo of the vehicle. I couldn't get exact information on the Credit Board regaridng this, but below are my questions:
       
      1. I understand this stays on my credit for 7 years just like any other bad-credit history that could be bumped off. Is it the same with the Vehicle Repo? Can I bump this from my report just like any other credit pulls?
      2. What are the other consequences of a Voluntary Repo?
       
      Thanks,
      Jd

      Good Evening.
       
      First, I'd like to say how thankful I am that I found this site. All this time, I've thought the SOL for Tennessee is 7 years. I have been patiently awaiting January 2015 to file a dispute to have 2 medical accounts removed from my CBR. However, I just found out the SOL is actually 6 years in TN. A few years ago, I disputed them a few years ago with the CA and they never responded. I forgot about them until I recently received copies of my reports.
       
      Does anyone advise that I go directly to the EQ and TU website to dispute the accounts or is it imperative that I follow the SOL program instructions on this site? The following accounts are being reported to EQ and TU only (the info is the same on each report). Any response will be greatly appreciated.

      My apologies if this gets long. In 2003 we had a boat reposed. We had been paying a small amount each month towards the balance that was left after they sold it (which was a lot over $10,000). We were doing this through an autopay. There was a mishap in the autopay and it hadn't been coming out. Now this balance has been turned over to a collection agency (Mountain State Adjustment if anyone is familiar). I talked to them for the first time today and they want $12,900. I cannot even imagine there was that much left on the balance so I am not sure where that number is coming from. I was planning to send a validation of debt letter. Is that the right course to take here. They are expecting me to call them back on Friday. I told them we don't have access to that kind of cash. He said they pulled our credit report and it is good enough we should be able to get a loan. I am also wondering if this is outside the statute of limitations for my state. I looked it up and it appears to be 6 years for written contracts. What are your suggestions. The guy on the phone was very rude.
       
      Thank you in advance.
