BK7 removed from TU yesterday! Scheduled to be removed 1/2021.   I called in and the rep asked some ID verification questions. She then said there was an error on my report and she was

Well..  an update.  I had read from a rouge element poster on MF about a method that seems to be working with TU regarding EE  and tried it.  It involves the dreaded online dispute method.  I tried it

Three more vanquished this morning on TU dispute site.  It seems automatic when checking the "too old" box when within 6 months. 

Here is my gospel on TU. I dispute everything online ( all my accounts were at least 3 months out). EVERY SINGLE ITEM was DELETED

 

So I would never ever recommend calling them

 

Same here. Most were deleted by the time I woke up the next morning. I did have 1 that took 28 days so I am not sure what was going on there but it did delete.

Okay - so now that i've had a chance to look at everything here is the follow up.

 

 

Experian - I have one account that got verified however the DOFD is 7/20/07. Do I follow up with another round on online disputing or do i call? And if I call who or what do I call?

 

Equifax - I have a collection account that got updated from collection to closed, their DOFD is 9/1/2007. What do I do here? Transunion and Experian deleted this account, any suggestions?

I just had two badies removed from TU by the online dispute. One was scheduled to come off 11\14 and one was 12\14.

 

I know that everyone says that Online is the only way to go with TU but I did have some luck on the phone in June. Although they were hard for me to understand, I did dispute two bad second mortgages and two CA from those second mortgages. I first asked if they would remove them, they said they would put in a dispute, although I was reluctant, I said OK, After talking to the mortgage guy he said that having a dispute would hold up getting a mortgage so I called back two hours later to try and remove the dispute... and they told me that those accounts had already been deleted.

 

So possibly.... if you need something off that day, calling might work. If you can wait a day... online is definitely easier.

With Experian, you should call. I had no luck with snail mail nor online disputes. Call in 3 months and it's pretty easy.

I was going to call today for my last one. I am not sure exactly how these conversations go. In my head I was thinking it would go like this.

 

me: I am calling regarding XXX tradeline. According to my records this account should no longer be on my credit report.

rep: it is scheduled to be removed in Sept.

me: well according to my records it has been 7 years already so it should be removed.

 

Is that how the basic conversation usually goes or should I say something differently?

They'll say 7 years, but I ask for it saying "I understand that I can call in and have it removed at 6 years, 6 months as a courtesy". They usually agree and the next day its gone.

They will actually tell you it can be removed after 7 years from xxx date. They will ask you if you want to dispute it as being obsolete (Or something to that nature). Tell them you do and they will enter the dispute for you. if you call back two hours later to check on it, I bet it will be gone. Thats what happened when I called.They are hard to understand, for me anyway, but it worked that day. if you don't need it done right away I would say online is way easier.

 

Hope that helps... Have a great weekend

Oooppsss.... I am sorry, you were talking Experian and I was talking TU... Sorry about that.

 

Like they said with experian... Def you should call, you actually get someone in the United States and for me way easier to understand. I have not had any luck with longer than three months out, they told me that the date of estimated removal on my Experian CR is actually three months earlier than the DOFD so thats when they are able to remove it.... I am going to try again though as those dates are 11/14 and 12/14.

 

Sorry for the confusion... I hope you still have a great weekend :)

Late Night Repair in motion. Glad I stumbled upon this post.

I just did TU Online dispute on 2 TL (IIB) due to fall off 12/2014 and 1/2014.
Hope all goes well. THis will give me that 'feel good' to continue on if it gets deleted

Then I have 4 more TU IIB that fall off 2/2014 & 3/2014.

I have an EQ copy of report but I see I can start on a few TL next month based on their DOFD!!

Hi all, I have one item that might qualify (Asset Acceptance) on EX and EQ - EX doesn't show DOFD (just the date that Asset Acceptance opened their account), but says its scheduled to be removed 9/2014. EQ shows date reported as 12/28/2007.

 

I have been reading on here that EX will be deleted on 9/2014 (3 months early) and I may or may not get any help from EQ.

 

Does it help that the OC is no longer reporting? It fell off a few months ago.

Sorry Chugs, I should have said "In my experience they have only removed it one month early". How were you able to get them removed for EQ 3-6 months early if you don't mind my asking

 

 

Dispute. Dispute again. and again. Call. Write. Harass them until they do.

 

I didn't have to try that hard. One online dispute and I was able to get the derog deleted.

Thanks Chugs,

I have only called EX once, on this particular baddie, which I didn't have luck with. When you disputed it online did it take the whole 30 day "Investigation time". I am definitely going to call tomorrow and try to pull at their heart strings a little. The DOFD is 2\2008 and on the report from them it says it will be removed 11\2014.

 

Thanks for the help

On EX I had a removal date of 7\2014 and was able to call them in June and have it removed. Which would have made it four months early so you may be able to wait until August and try and give them a call.

 

On EQ I would do what Chugs just suggested I do. Although I don't really need those removed as the one thing left on Experian.

 

Good Luck with it all

Hi All;

 

Disputed online TU 2 baddies: 1) AMEX 38K due to fall off 10/14. 2). BOA 8K due to fall off 12/14. Both were removed within 24 hrs! Called EQ for the AMEX but was told they couldn't remove until 9/14!

Thank you CB and all your great advice!

Will follow this thread. I might be doing some obsoletes as well. Never knew that these should be done online.

its not that they SHOULD be done online, it is just that it doesn't matter if they are done via mail. With TU it appears that their computers will automatically remove something if it is within 6 months so by doing it online it will automatically get removed. If you send in a dispute by paper there is a chance that a human will look at it and possibly not remove it.

      Any explanation would be great. I thought to list a series of events would be better than some long paragraph. I have pics and proof for all events below. 
       
      Mid May: Ordered Vehicle (checked credit score showing 730 at the time)

      June 7: Toyota Financial Services received payment for old lease

      June 12: TFS closed account
       
      June 30: TFS reported to the credit bureau account closed on June 12

      Friday July 9: Credit was pulled by dealer (first of knowing of outstanding balance on a said closed account)Was able to get bumped to a Tier 2. (Nothing was reported nor sent to me that I had an outstanding balance)
       
      Monday July 12: called Transunion because their score was what was pulled that hurt the deal. Transunion said that they show nothing of delinquency on my report AND show no history of it being removed nor it ever being on there in the first place.
       
      Evening July 12: called Experian because no other apps were showing a tier 3 credit score. They also said they had no history of it ever being on my report. (Talked to about five differnent people) They put me on a callback list to speak to a supervisor. Associate had said supervisor was in a meeting and would call back.
       
      July 13: Called Experian again to figure what happened. Received notifications that my credit score had increased 66 points and delinquency was removed notifications on Experian app. (No certainty that it was removed from report because they said there’s nothing bad on my report. I guess I take their word for it??)
       
      Evening July 13: received a notifications from credit apps that Toyota Motor Credit has reported positive activity on a outstanding loan balance. Loan paid.
       
      July 14: Called TFS to request document to cross reference dates.
       
      July 16: Called TFS to speak to Toyota Motor Credit. Turns out there’s no one to speak to in that department. It’s the same as calling TFS. Called Experian again to ask why they are just now reflecting on my credit that I had an outstanding balance that was just closed on July 13 not what TFS sent which states that it was closed in June 12. Experian had told me that the account was closed in June but when I explained to them that’s not what I’m seeing in my emails and notifications, they became combative and hung up on me. No one can tell me how and why on July 9, a inaccurate mistake cost me money and no one can send me my credit report to verify that there’s no delinquency. TFS agree that someone dropped the ball (but not them) and is willing to send any and all reports they have on my accounts. All credit bureaus has yet to send me to any documentation of removal of alleged delinquency and I will never know what happen on July 9th that cost me money. I’m paying more than I should and I could’ve been out of $1k(nonrefundable deposit to order vehicle) because I will not sign a tier 3 deal. Who knows how long I would’ve been without a car in this market if that were true.

      Please excuse the lengthy post... hopefully you guys can give us some guidance regarding an issue with Citibank and our Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard. Here is the situation:
       
      Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard
       
      We had a Credit Limit of $9,000.00
       
      On 9/23/2020 we made an electronic payment of $5,000.00. Due to financial complications resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic the payment of $5,000.00 was returned. 
       
      At no point were we informed by Citibank that the aforementioned credit card was closed. However we also did not communicate with Citibank.
       
      We dug ourselves out of our financial issues and called Citibank on 3/24/2021 in response to an email we received about making a payment. At this point our balance was $15,359.93
       
      The issues begin with the 3/24/2021 call:
       
      On 3/24/2021 we spoke with a Citibank Representative and arranged to make a payment of $6,360.00 to be processed on 3/29/2021 on the condition that once it cleared the account would be:
      1. In good standing
      2. Open
      3. The card would be active (meaning we’d be able to use it)
      We verified the above 3 conditions multiple times with the Citibank representative and they confirmed. 
      As a side note, I remember specifically giving the Citibank Representative I spoke with on 3/24/2021 an example of what my definition of open and usable was so there was no confusion.
      We also agreed to setup automatic minimum payments.
       
      On 3/25 we received a message from Citibank confirming that we had enrolled in autopay - no where in this message does it state that the account is closed. In fact it reads as if the account is open and in good standing. 
       
      On 3/29/2021 the payment in the amount of $6,360.00 processed, cleared our account and posted to Citibank.
       
      And in fact based on what the Citibank representative confirmed on our 3/24/2021 call we made an additional payment on 3/29/2021 of $4,000.00. We received an email from Citibank confirming this and again at no point did it state the account was closed, and again it reads as if the account is open.
       
      On 3/30/2021 after we confirmed both payments ($6,360 + $4,000) cleared with no issues, we checked our account to make sure the card was active - as the Citibank representative told us it would be. At this point we became worried and began calling Citibank.
       
      We spent at least 4-5 hours and multiple phone calls on with different Citibank representatives, none of which could give us any direct answers. Finally, after poking around on the internet and in message boards we found a number for the Citibank Executive Response Unit. 
      We spoke with a very polite and helpful Citibank Representative in the Executive Response Unit who opened a case for us. 
       
      At this point I sent multiple emails following up and outlining what had transpired on the 3/24/2021 call. 
       
      We never once received an email response confirming receipt of emails. Every-time I would have to call and confirm receipt. 
       
      At some point we were assigned a representative with the Citibank Executive Response unit. 
       
      After multiple emails and phone calls, they called us back on 4/12/2021.
       
      On the 04/12/2021 the rep politely told me she listened to all our phone calls with Citibank especially the call in question that took place on 3/24/2021. The rep acknowledged/confirmed the following:
       
      That the Citibank Representative I spoke with on 3/24/21, stated multiple times when asked by me (multiple times) if by making the payment of $6,360 it would bring our account; in good standing/current, open, and usable - the representative answered "Yes". She also acknowledged that in addition to answering "Yes" the representative communicated to me in other ways that by making said payment the account would be in good standing, open, and usable.   
      We expressed to the rep that Citibank should honor what they committed to on our 3/24/21 call: An open account, in good standing, and with a useable card.
       
      While polite and understanding the rep said there was nothing she could do. After we pressed her and explained we felt Citibank’s behavior was deceptive (We did not use the word fraudulent, although we believe it was) Tanya offered us a $150.00 statement credit, to which we declined. 
       
      On 04/12/2021 following the call with the Citibank rep we sent a follow-up email, confirming what transpired on our call. We called the Executive Response Unit on 04/13/2021 to confirm the email was received and forwarded to said rep - this was confirmed. 
       
      On 4/13/2021 we filed a complaint with the CFPB - that read similar to all of the above post. In addition we stated the following would be an appropriate resolution:
       
      For Citibank to honor what they agreed to on our 3/24/2021 call.
      Open our Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard so it is usable again. Bring our account in good standing with all 3 credit bureaus  Maintain our Credit-line of $9,000.000  In addition, considering what we’ve been through we’d like them to make a goodwill correction with all 3 credit bureaus. 
       
       
      On 4/27/2021 we received a response from Citibank via email. Which basically stated there is nothing they could do, the account would remain closed, there would be no Goodwill correction with the CRA's, and that they would in fact report the account to the CRA's as "disputed by consumer".
       
      Also on 4/27/2021 we received an email from the CFPB stating that the company has responded. Status on the CFPB website shows "Closed Company Responded"
       
      And here we are today...
      What do you guys think? 
      Should we push this more? 
      Is there a way to escalate further?
      Any and all advice/suggestions/comments much appreciated!!!
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Any advice is much appreciated! 
       
      I graduated with my masters in Aug 2020 and havent had a full time job since Dec 2019. My mom was laid off because of covid in March 2020 and I stopped making payments to credit cards after graduating from my masters (Sept 2020) because my student loans stopped coming and my mom could barely make her own mortgage payments. Since Sept 2020, Ive severely damaged my credit and am now in over $27k cc debt. 
       
      I've since moved to Europe and don't plan to come back to the US, at least not for several years, to pursue lower cost education here. 
       
      I don't know how to proceed with my cc debt because I've been told since my credit is already tanked that it wouldnt matter if I pay off my debt, attempt to lower my 23-25% interest rates on my 9 credit cards, or try to negotiate a lower payoff. 
       
      I work part time remotely for a client in the US but the work is random and not guaranteed. The most I've made since I started with her in Dec 2020 was $1100 a month. 
       
      I contacted a debt consolidation law firm in the US but they want to charge me a $750 retainer and then $600 a month for 36 months to pay off my cards. Im waiting to hear if they guarantee these cards will be paid. 
       
      No idea how to proceed and feeling overwhelmed because I want to do the right thing but Im drowning in interest rates and have called two banks to talk with them only to be yelled at and shamed. 
       
      Do you have any advice for me?
    • By TheDeansClub
      Trying to help a friend and thought I'd pose the question to the board as I do research here on best course of action.  I'm having a little trouble deciding on the best advice to give here...
       
      Backstory:  Financial hardship going back years.  Besides making some poor choices, extenuating circumstances exist... 
       
      ~3.5 years ago, 2 things converged - debtor decided to take highest balance and highest APR CC, and get Cap1 to zero-out the APR via 60-90 day late (thought that was the only way to get the offer).  Right before that ball rolled, Cap1 sold the account to a theretofore unknown CC Co.  Debtor decided to stick with the plan and on day 80-whatever, got the financial hardship, closed account 0% APR with the new CC Co.  Balance was $7K.  Fast-forward 3 years, this company supposedly sent 2 letters saying the financial hardship plan was expiring.  Debtor received no communication from them in the mail.  Received no email.  Company is claiming they sent them.  Company is saying the payment plan the account is under is no longer available and they've reinstated the original APR but did not reopen the account (at least to the debtor's knowledge they have not).  Debtor will not be able to manage under the reinstated APR (26%), balance is now ~$5K.  Debtor was under the impression that the payment plan was there until the account was paid to 0, as they closed the card - does not recall receiving any written confirmation of the payment plan terms, and it will take some time to dig through files (if they did provide something in writing, it is saved somewhere in a file).  Calling the company was bush league - seemingly no financial hardship department, agents who didn't seem to understand what options were available for financial hardship, could not answer whether the account was currently open or still closed, request to speak with a supervisor has so far gone unheeded - no returned phone call.
       
      What I'm trying to determine firstly is - what rights does the debtor have here if any?  Is there any recourse for not receiving notification of this expiration?  Currently there is no option to transfer the balance.  I'm unsure whether to advise for a flat "withhold payment and settle."  But perhaps it has come to this.  By all accounts there are no professionals to speak with via phone for this CC Co.  Maybe this is just a strategy of "best of bad options to dump this creditor and move on." 
       
      Appreciate help in brainstorming...

      So I disputed (or so I thought I disputed) addresses off the Big 4. TU removed all addresses except for my current. EQ has my current and another non-BK address. EX won't budge.
       
      All bureaus froze. Microbilt, LexisNexis, SageStream, Chex, you name it. 
       
      Try to get full verification of the bankruptcy on my file, thinking the whole Trial Rule 1005 thing would help me (this rule makes only the last 4 of your social, full name and addy public-facing).
       
      No dice.
       
      This was the response L/N fed me, including a few notes in RED.
       
      Please critique, tell me I have no chance for removal, something....
