The Master obsolete delete time frame thread

Recommended Posts

 

I'm still waiting on EQ to finish my obsolete dispute that I discussed a few posts ago. I'm bummed because I didn't think they would take long than EX, who deleted within a day!

 

I'm in the same boat. Ex deleted within 6 hours. Eq is taking over a week with the dispute results. One didn't make obsolete and was verified.

For EX, was that the one from April via chat? Did you have any luck with the one from May?

question;

I have a student loan late that was simply reported as 120 days late on my 3 reports in sept 2007.

 

I am not sure if that means I can start disputing now as obsolete or do I have to wait until March? That is, is it based on the day it first went late (i.e. 120 days before sept) or is it based on sept since it is reported as simply 120 days late?

What is the status of the loan? Are you still paying on it or is it closed?

 

There are unintended consequences for disputing something like this. They will not remove the lates but there is a chance that they would remove the entire trade line. My recommendation is just let it be. 7 year old lates are not effecting your FICO very much. It will still list as a negative and if may prevent you from getting a prime card in some cases but I would just leave it. Once it hits the fall off date, the history will disappear and you will be left with a positive trade line.

thanks for the feedback futurehomeowner

 

it is an open loan that i continue to pay on- and probably will for the next 20 years. unfortunately this is my only baddie on all 3 reports. i currently have roughly 7 open credit cards, a new open home loan, and a pretty new open car loan. if they were to wipe this entire tl away, i wouldnt be too sad although there is a lot of history to go with it.(note i have some old closed TLs as well still reporting that are older). experian's website says that it will 'remain on my report until march 2014' - so i assumed they would just take away the late?

 

Also I have been reading about the experian chat and attempted this, but never got the chat window to load. would firefox work? maybe im not on the right screen for that chat to pop up?

yes, the chat screen works on firefox.

 

Click on the tradeline you want to dispute to display the details. Then just let it sit there. Eventually, a chat window will show up.

Thank you so much for this thread!!! So much helpful information!! After reading through and seeing everyone else's success I did and online dispute with TU. This morning I received an email from them and 7 items have been deleted!!!! I've listed the types of debt and fall off dates below for you

 

  • CH 13 BK- 07/14
  • CO (BOA) 09/14
  • CO (Cap1) 07/14
  • Auto loan 04/14
  • CO (cc) 07/14
  • CO (cc) 07/14
  • JBD 06/14

There's one more that I thought I had disputed but I guess I overlooked that one, I guess I will be calling them to get that one deleted too. I'm so excited. I did not get a chance to dispute EQ and EX yet. I had trouble accessing the online dispute center with EX yesterday so I will try again today.

When you call and have the dispute removed from the trade line, is that still knowledge to the rep that you attempt to dispute with in the future? Seems like once they see it has been disputed before, they won't help.

I just jumped on this bandwagon for a few that will fall off within 6 months.

 

3 on EQ and TU.

 

Experian must have me blacklisted online or something, they wouldn't even allow me to purchase a credit report to get a #.

 

AND I'm a member of their reporting services, they are exponentially purple I swear it.

Called EX tonight because I couldn't get into the dispute center to try chat. Nice girl, deleted one right on the phone. However she wouldn't delete Citi... Here's a strange thing though. I have the EX report that says due to fall pdf MAR 2014. She said May. I told her the report I had dated Feb. 6th says March. She tells me Citi changed it just recently? What? How is that possible??

SOL doesn't make a difference here, these are close to the 7 year DofD mark and TU has been deleting about 6 months out from that mark.

just to confirm as well. some people are saying "mines fell off after a dispute within 6 months from time" to clarify how that 6 months is calculated.

In my case, there is no dofd on the report, but i have a 120 day late mark listed in sept 2014. experian has a mark that says "due to fall off march 2014"

 

would my dispute fall in a reasonable time to dispute? or are most of you waiting until after the march date given (in my case)

EQ is the only report of mine that shows DOFD, the other two have a line like you mentioned "due to fall off..." So for your example, yours is due to fall off next month so I'm not sure you would even want to go through the trouble but for those that have the dates that are approaching in within the next six months which would be through September is you're counting from March I say go for it.

Just so you all know, EX's online dispute system is coded such that the option to dispute as obsolete only appears if they are willing to delete it, if you choose it. At least it used to be.. what I mean is, the code specifies that if the TL is within a certain amoutn of time of the expected deletion date, then that option appears on your dispute screen. If it's not, it won't appear.

 

In my experience, if it appears, then that means you should use it no matter WHAT your real 'issue' is with the TL, because EX *WILL* delete it. (Usually within a day or two).

 

Otherwise the option won't appear at all.

 

This was true as of a couple of years ago at least, and I've never had anyone tell me that it didn't work yet.

      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.
