Santander Auto Loan Advice

In 12/2011, I received an auto loan from Santander. Long story short, the dealership falsified documents to get me the loan. After speaking with a friend, I decided to get another car and got approved for another auto loan with Honda Financial with a lower payment, which I have made all my payments on time. I later received claim documents from my insurance company at the time about an accident on 5/22/2013, that I know never took place. I called my insurance company and they told me Santander filed the claim. I called Santander, and found out Santander for some reason, called my insurance company and filed a "loan servicer claim" on 5/22/2013 for damages on the car. The catch is... the car was still in my possession until 6/2/2013, which was a week after I called to surrender the car. :dntknw: I was so confused and they couldn't give me an answer as to why they did it, and I kept getting the run around from Santander and my insurance company. Just a big hot diddly mess. :stop:


I want to dispute it because it is the biggest factor affecting my reports. They are showing in the report as a default on auto loan and not a voluntary surrender or repossession. The account was charged-off 6/2013. The TL is still fresh, but I'm think with all the inconsistencies and things that have happened while I had this car, that I might somehow have a case. I live in Florida, and if I can recall the SOL is 5 years for written contracts.


Should I start a dispute, do a PFD or just hire a lawyer to help solve this? I'm not looking for any settlement from this issue. I just want it off my credit reports. :unsure:

      In my second year of graduate school, I let seven credit cards charge off. The charge off dates are all between April and June 2013. I had no income at the time other than student loans and, with everything on my plate, I let them go without much thought to the consequences. I'm now done with school and will finally have an income for the first time in three years starting in mid-September. All of my loans are in good standing as well as nine other revolving accounts with low utilizations and low limits (six of those opened since May 2014).
      I would appreciate advice on how to approach these charged off accounts. Two of them have since been sold to JDB's, but only one has appeared on my credit report with a collection agency (HSBC account sold to The Bureaus/Stoneleigh Recovery). The other five are still reporting balances with the OCs. I have not spoken with any of the original creditors or collection agencies.
      My accounts are as follows:
      B of A: ~ $2500 C/O 6/2013
      Collection Agency: Client Services, Inc.
      B of A: ~ $2500 C/O 6/2013
      Collection Agency: Client Services, Inc.
      Chase: ~$3500 C/O 6/2013
      Collection Agency: United Collection Bureau
      Citicards: ~$2600 C/O 7/2013
      Collection Agency: Global Credit Collection
      Citicards: ~$3400 C/O 6/2013
      Collection Agency: Northland Group
      HSBC: ~$3000 (original), now $3100 C/O 6/2013
      HSBC Reporting $0 balance
      Collection agency: Stoneleigh Recovery Associates
      Current Creditor: The Bureaus (reporting to CRAs) since 6/2013
      Wells Fargo - $1600 C/O 6/2013
      Reporting $0 balance
      Collection Agency: Portfolio Recovery Associates
      Due to the ethical requirements of my profession, I cannot leave these accounts unpaid and on my credit reports without settling them or, preferably, having them removed entirely. How would you recommend I proceed with these?
      Other info: TU and Experian Ficos are 615 and 610, respectively.
      Thanks in advance for any advice!

      Help with a Capital One charge off and United Recovery Systems
      My wife has a charge off with Capital one for the amount of 414.55 on a CL of 300. This is killing her utilization! We have tried to pay Capital One directly but they refuse and said that we had to pay United Recovery Systems. URS is not reporting on her reports and I do not want them to report. I want to pay this thing but I don’t want it to show up on her reports. They have been calling lately on our landline but we never use the landline or even answer the damn thing.
      I know that you should always DV a CA and I understand that, but I know for a fact that she owes the crap and I am not trying to skip paying it. I just don’t want the CA to show up on her reports.
      What are you guys opinion on the best course of action? DV or just call them up and pay the thing for a letter in writing that they will not report to the bureaus?
      Do you think there is any chance of getting the CA to get the OC to delete the tradeline? This is a pipedream that I would jump for joy if it happened.
      Any and all advice welcomed!

      Hello all-
      I am starting my husband and I's credit repair journey as we prepare to purchase our first home in the near future. One of the biggest mistakes we made in 2008 was purchase a timeshare. Back then we did not budget correctly and really could not afford it, I don't even know how we got approved.
      Anyways, fast forward to today it is only showing up on our Experian credit report and it is in a Charged Off status showing we owe about $13K. I am going to attempt to fight this through our journey however, for you experienced brokers out there how big of an issue will this be if I can't get it removed? If I am able to increase our scores to qualify for an FHA loan will the underwriter settle for a letter explaining what happened or will they want us to pay it in full? I am in Texas btw and we purchased the timeshare in Florida. (not sure if you need that information)
      I would just like to get an idea of whether or not we will be turned down everywhere if I can't get this removed. Any feedback, experience or advice is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you!

      I assumed that I would have to go through a subprime lender but I applied through Chase anyway. I was approved for a loan of up to $17,000 for 60 months at 8.29%. I'm shocked by the interest rate. A dealer that I went through told me that the best he could offer me was a loan at 25%.

      Would appreciate some assistance with a question or two that I do not know the answer to.
      Do chargeoff(s) need to be paid if they are reporting a zero (0) balance and/or out of SOL and/or sold to JDB prior to closing?
      This is not a question about a collection, specifically about a chargeoff(s).
      Lets say the range is between $1-10K, non-medical, and for unsecured credit card debt specifically.
      Also does this chargeoff(s) contribute to the DTI calculation?
