The Master obsolete delete time frame thread

How can you dispute online again with TU within a week or two of another dispute? Time to tackle my last 3 and I'd really rather just do it online.

By mail. TU has a nasty habit of blocking the online dispute function for a while.

Send it by mail. Chances are this would be resolved before you regain online access, which could take a while.

the other option is get your TU report again through the backdoor. then you can login to the dispute center and you will see the previous dispute that was completed and the fresh report at the bottom that gives you the option to dispute again.

It has to be deleted from your CR's 7 years from the DOFD. Doesn't matter who "owns" the account.

So EQ shows DOFD as 8/07 but EX doesn't have that category at all - only Date opened as 8/08 and Reported since and Date of Status as 10/08 BUT they show and estimated date of 5/2014 as estimated date to be removed from report. TU also lacks

DOFD but gives 08/19/08 as date place for collection and Estimated date of removal as 07/14.

 

When should I send Obsolete letters to each CRA?

Towards the bottom of page 3 of this thread, I summarized the experiences of reports posted on this thread. EX and EQ are a mixed bag. I haven't had any luck with them yet.

 

TU should be good to go now. My experience is that everything listed as dropping in July is getting removed. Everything in August is getting verified. Presumable, in February, August items should come off.

 

 

Thanks so much to you and Futurehomeowner! LVNV is GONE from TU (should have been off in July 2014). The Rep at Experian told me it wasn't able to be removed before May 2014. Any advice other than to call back and try a different rep?

3 months early is usually the max with EX. Try again in 3 months.

Just lost 4 more OCs from TU. All were 6 months or less from scheduled fall off date. I used the online form since my previous disputes were too recent to get into my report.

 

I also got rid of 2 student loans that we're reporting incorrectly. They were dupes that never got updated after the loan was transferred to a new lender. I was scared to dispute them since they weren't on EX and only 1 is on EQ. I was afraid that they would get added on to the others. But they both showed a balance and a minimum monthly payment due of the full amount.

 

Smart Credit FAKO just shot up 51 points to 720. I know it's just FAKO but since I'm too cheap to buy my FICO right now, that's all I've got.

 

I still have 4 more Lines to dispute that are all between 1-6 months but I think I'll give it a rest for a bit. 1 of the negatives is Crap 1 and frankly, they scare me. I'd hate for them to add 6 months since right now they're schedule off at exactly 7 years.

It took 4 days the first time I submitted the form. It took 5 days this time. Both were 3 business days.

 

Sweet, looking forward to tomorrow then!

well I just received my obsolete dispute back from TU. It is due to fall off in Sept of this year. It was showing on TU as a charge off but with a 15k balance. After the dispute came back they kept the line on there but made the balance due $0. I guess it is a win for now but I still want it gone. :-(

 

ETA: The above was based on my MPM daily pull. I just logged into TU to review dispute status and I got the following message. Maybe there is still hope?

See post 64 and then 69.

 

I got the same message in the Evening but no changes on my report. The next morning, 5 out of 6 gone.

 

However, I had not yet received a notice that dispute was complete and there had been no changes whatsoever before they disappeared.

 

There's always hope but you might need to wait until next month.

BINGO! Clean TU report!!! Can't wait to see my Barclays FICO when it updates!

 

761 USAA TU FAKO, FWIW. 1 inquiry and 14% util. I should be sitting pretty FICO wise.

 

 

Plan of attack... Barclays CLI, Discover CLI/PC, and then Amazon/GECAF CLI.

 

Maybe throw a BBVA Compass Clear Points card in if I'm feeling frisky!

I have 3 CAs that ex wouldn't let me dispute as obsolete online or over the phone. 1 to fall off in April, 1 may, and one that says 2015. I filed a cfpb complaint that they wouldn't let me dispute. The investigation is now opened and awaiting to hear back. It says they have 60 days.

why not just send out a mail dispute. You don't have to use certified. You have a pretty good chance at getting rid of the may and april ones but the one from 2015 is not budging just yet.

it updated today and it looks like I get to keep the TL. They did update the balance to 0 instead of 15k so I guess that is a win. I think that is enough to be ready to house shop. My fako is not 736 and with this as my only baddie my FICOs should be in pretty good shape as well.

Make sure that you know the limitations of the Clear Points card if you decide to have laser hair removal.

I did my TU dispute online Monday noonish and got an email saying it was resolved at apprx 6am Tuesday. Logged in and it had been removed!

I guess it's better than nothing. :(

 

Are you going to try again next month. You should be good then according to what we're seeing.

Were you able to choose the obsolete option (only available for OCs)? Or did you use "other" or the form? 12 hour turn around would be awesome but I've never experienced it.

      There is no paywall.   I did not know this, but found it interesting.

      Long story short, have an old judgement, that while it isn't showing on my credit reports, shows up as public record when the mortgage company pulled my credit.  I have to get it paid/settled/removed in order for them to approve my mortgage loan.  How can I best protect my assets while I try and settle with them?  So far I have been able to fly under their radar as I am self employed, have a different bank account and don't have any auto loans.  I know since the judgement they have tried to get information in court from companies I have done contract work for, so I know they are diligently trying to garnish wages from me.  How can I protect my bank account while I am in contact with them to settle the judgement and get it taken care of?

      Hi, I'm new here and got a notice from a credit agency on my private student loan.  It's been 3 years since I last paid as I was contesting the amount and got sick.  I signed for the loan in D.C. and the loan originated in OH.  I now live in OH.  I also stopped paying while I lived in NY (before I moved to OH).  I just got a letter from a CA based in NY state (don't know if the CA state location makes any difference).  My question is which SOL will apply?  OH, NY or the shorter DC SOL of 3 years?  OH has a number of SOLs, 6 years, 8 years so I'm not sure which SOL would even apply to the promissory note for the bank based in OH.  How could I look this up at a law library.  I'm not very familiar with the process if anyone could help with legal research ideas?  I'm also contesting the validity of the loan because the promissory note states that the repayment period is 240 months and I think I have passed this point.  Any help I can find would help a long way; very stressed out by this situation---there are so many ways this could go---if the CA goes through with a judgment and wage garnishment (I'm disabled and earn a very small part time income) can they revive the judgment every five years for 15 years (OH) even after the SOL expires on the private loan itself (3 yrs DC SOL, 6 yrs NY SOL, 6 or 8 yrs SOL OH)?  I don't know if I should just ignore the CA or write them to dispute this loan (and risk waking the sleeping giant) or wake the sleeping giant with a dispute letter and prepare myself to go to court (have no idea how I would defend myself but would like to dispute amount of the loan, SOL etc).  This all seems very risky.  Can this debt sold to a credit agency be invalid?

      In early 2016, I lost my job in the oil field. It was a very good job, and I made good money. I received a decent package when I was laid off, and starting looking for a job. Sadly, the entire oil patch was going through the same thing, and it took my 18 months to find a job that paid 1/5th of what I had been making. It took another six months after that to find a job that allowed us to keep our heads above water, and now I'm back in the saddle and we're doing much better. 
       
      Around the 18 month mark, we had to let some of our credit cards go. They had pretty high balances, but we were doing fine until that point. It was always our intention to try to pay them when I found a job, because we did incur the debts and I felt pretty bad about having to let them go. Also, we'd worked so damn hard to get our credit straightened out and it was very nearly physical pain to let it go to hell again. But when I got to the point where we could actually start looking at making payments again (around that two year mark), well ... OCs were sort of like, too bad, we've already charged them off and sold them. I decided to try to ride it out and see what happens. We haven't applied for new credit, but we've maintained three or four cards, our car payments, student loans and a personal loan in the time that's elapsed. 
       
      Fast forward to last month, and I was sued by Midland for a small-ish debt. I responded, but haven't heard anything back yet. The thing is, we're trying to move in to a new rental, and the RE agent is telling us it may be impossible for us to do so with our credit scores (my FICO scores are low 600s and I make the bulk of the income; DH's are mid 500s). Soooo I was wondering (and I'm no newb but I am sick of dealing with this crap) if I should try to settle some of these with a couple of caveats - primarily that they are PFDs and the remaining debts are never sold. I still have two years to ride out the SOL, and I cannot wait that long to move or buy a car (that needs to be done next year). 
       
      Should I try to settle these debts? I'm morally opposed to paying bottom feeders like Midland and Portfolio, but I need to get my scores back to a reasonable point, and the damn collections from JDBs are what's really screwing it up. Also, I'm concerned that since half or more of my debts are now owned by Midland, if they are in any way successful with this lawsuit, they will charge full steam ahead and go after me for all of them. I can see it really opening the flood gates, so to speak. 
       
      What would you do in this situation? 
       
      TIA,
       
      TQG

      Hello,  If anyone with experience could read this over and please tell me if I'm heading in the right direction, I'd be FOREVER grateful. Thank you!
       
      (I live in TX) I was served on March 18th a JUSTICE CIVIL CITATION by Midland Funding.
      Original creditor: Synchrony Bank
      Card/Account name: JcPenney
      Claim total: $2889
      Date account opened: 11/02/2005
      Date account closed/charged off: 03/11/2018
      Date of acquisition: 04/27/2018
       
      Backstory: we were displaced back in June 2017...we were given 30 days to pack up everything we own and find a new house (we had been there 12 years). Our rent went from $700/mo to $1250/mo and I was completely unprepared for that price jump so I had to stop paying on a couple of my credit cards.
       
      Fast forward to this year...as I mentioned, I was served on March 18th and my response was due on April 1st. I completely forgot. And then three weeks later, my 12 year old nephew committed suicide. So, THAT was an obstacle in itself. It has taken me months JUST to get back to "normal" from the depression/etc.
       
      So now, here I find myself in September already, looking at a letter titled DEFAULT HEARING NOTICE (rcvd 08/29/19). It says I have a default hearing set to be held on September 20th. I know I'm cutting it SO CLOSE, but what options do I have right now?
       
      I did some research and found that I should still be able to file a MOTION TO SET ASIDE DEFAULT JUDGEMENT and NOTICE OF HEARING, with the reason that I didn't attend the hearing due to "accident or mistake rather than intentional or conscious indifference".  Is this true? I keep seeing conflicting information (or I'm not comprehending it completely).
       
      I also saw in the forums that Synchrony Bank does arbitration. I was successful in beating Midland about 4 years ago by going through arbitration, SO if I am able to get the judge to set aside the default hearing, my plan is to ask for arbitration.
