So- my credit file has not significantly changed in a long time (and I qualified for long-term zero% auto loan back in April).
I do carry significant balances on my credit cards, but always pay (auto-pay) significantly more than minimum payments.
but something triggered an odd cascade in the last few weeks.
I got notice one of my Synchrony accounts had suddenly had the credit limit dramatically reduced. I contacted them and they said they periodically check credit report and make changes. The letter they sent indicated high balances to limit on cards.
a day later ai get another letter from Synchrony- for a second account with them was having the limit reduced...
we all know this impacts your credit score, as it messes up your utilization %.
today, I got notice from a different bank- that, due to higher credit utilization rates, they dramatically reduced my limit in that card -
Which of course now even further rips my credit score...
And this afternoon, I get notice from Synchrony that my Automotive account (that has never had particularly high balance can limit) was having a limit reduction down to the current balance!
What’s going on? I have NEVER been late, never payed just the minimum payments on any accounts...
Is there some massive banking “surprise” on the horizon?
I did recently put a credit freeze on all 3 bureaus due to someone filing for unemployment with my name/SS# and I filed a police report on that.
I have paid credit monitoring service- and there is nothing new or odd on my CR...
So what’s going on?
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).
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....
Lovely Navient is posting 4, yes 4 charge-offs on my credit report. I'm starting with Equifax.
Round 1: Disputed because there was still a past due balance showing on the charged off accounts (all of them). One Navient Account deleted, the rest were "verified." Equifax "updated" the "date of last payment" to literally June 2020 ... on charged off accounts. They still show a past due balance, even though the debts were sold to a collection agency.
Round 2: Sent a method of verification letter to Equifax. Equifax responded with a "We don't have a credit file for you" letter. Stall tactic?
Round 3: Sent a second method of verification request with copies of the "we don't have a credit file for you" letter, proof of identity, copies of their previously "verified" accounts/"investigation results" pointing out they reported payments on charged off accounts. Interestingly, the "little boxes" that appear under the accounts which tell you if it's a timely payment, late, or a charge off still show a "late/charge off" for the months Equifax says they verified I made payments. Result: Investigation is PENDING.
I signed up for MyFico and apparently, Navient is reporting these charge offs/lates, FRESH, on a monthly basis - even after they sold the debt. Is this legal? How can I be late on a debt that doesn't exist anymore since they sold it off? I had a charge off before for a credit card a long time ago and once it was charged off and sold (Navient sold the debt as well) it wasn't reported every.dang.month. Is this legal or some sort of reporting violation?
Am I doing this correctly? Should I do a 609 and demand that they show me a copy of my MPN? TIA!!!
Trying to help a friend and not sure what to do. They were just served with paperwork from the Courts in Osceola County, Fl. It was filed by Raush Sturm on behalf of Sears for some appliances purchased almost 5 years ago. The account was interest free and when it came time to make the final payment it was offered to Sears to split the final payment within 7 days of each other to clear the account. They refused and final payment was not made. In the documents they included only 1 statement which shows a balance now due of $9027.70 as of 1/9/2019. Currently she has 10 days to answer the court complaint and I have no idea what we need to document or request. The amount is beyond ridiculous and she is currently a full time student with an unemployed spouse. Is there a way to request validation of the debt with all statement copies and proof it was purchased individually and not a bundle purchase (meaning they have no documents to prove they rightfully own?)
Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated. I have been reading on your boards about them being in the Hall of Fame for bad collectors.
