Hello all,

 

Pulled my CR for the first time in 10 years.  I am 50yrs old and noticed I had no new activity for the last 5 yrs...just my monthly mortgage pmt for the last 20 yrs and my truck loan paid off in 2013.   Out of those two accounts I do have a lot of late payments.  Mortgage (Chase) has 30 lates between Nov-2011/Sept-2017 and paid off closed truck (Santander) has 12 lates from Nov-2011/Feb-2013.  trying to clean report up I did an online dispute with transunion thru Credit karma disputing all my lates.  just got an email with dispute results stating the following below.   Went straight to my CR and the only thing that changed was my name format.  Just didn't know what the next step would be to try to rid of lates or if I should wait to see if anything changes/updates.  didn't know changes if any should reflect immediately?

 

Thanks, Noob

To understand what changed you need to look at the payment history on the account before and after the dispute.

I don't know why you disputed the late if you were indeed late on the payments. You should have tried a goodwill removal request with the original creditor and/or early exclusion of the negative information for the ones that happened in 2011 with the credit bureaus.

Yea that what i did.  l looked at my report for days before and the day i got the dispute results.  Is it too late to submit goodwill removal request  and/or early exclusion?

 

Thanks

I think a goodwill request is a waste of time. They sometimes work with a well crafted letter when you have one late from something plausible but not with a pattern of frequent lates. I don't know of anything that can be done unless you can point to a specific item that isn't reported correctly.

      I finally decided to attack my credit issue rather than pretend they don't exist. Here is the situation
       
      Here is my CreditKarma information...
       
      TransUnion and Equifax (both show the same items
      Credit Cards $0
      I have a $500 secured Discover IT card that I used for YouTube TV payment and that is it. Between 10% and 30% utilization opened May 2020.
      My mother added me as an authorized user to her Costco Capital One card that has perfect payment history, 8 years open and a $15,000 limit.
       
      Collections $5,317
      Armada Corp
      Total Accounts 6 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $3,193 
       
      Puget Sound Collections 
      Total Accounts 2 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $1,814
       
      Solverity
      Total Accounts 1 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $310
       
       
      Student Loans
      $0
      Accounts Were Garnished from my paycheck and paid
      Closed Accounts 4

      US Department of Education (Closed) Opened 09/2012
       
      I have sent debt validation letters to all three credit bureaus and this is what was verified. Where do I go from here. I was added as an authorized user to my mothers credit card (Capital One Costco) about a month ago. I hope this helps my score improve but it hasn't reported yet. I saw a 25+ point boost from my secured discover card but it hasn't helped since then. Can anyone offer some guidance as to a path for a better credit score? 
       
      Thanks,

      Anyone have experience pulling medical collections back from the credit agency and start a payment plan with your HC provider? Or negotiating with a HC provider for items already in collections and paying the HC a negotiated monthly amount or a one time negotiated payment then doing WhyChats system if the items are not removed from collections? The reason I ask is I have over 9 open accounts with Armada Corp (CA) totally over $15,000 and I am looking for the most efficient way to get this removed from my credit report.

      I am going to help my SO repair their credit, it is a mess, 99% compounded by medical bills but other trade lines got caught up from reduced income and everything that comes from major medical events.  In the past I was successful with a Jack attack letter addressing all trade lines.  Whatever was left I would move onto doing the 1-2 punch using DV letters and asking the CRA to validate.  I never claimed or denied validation of the debts in my Jack attack letters.  Do you think this can still work?  Any other suggestions?  I was never 100% and had to let a couple things age off, but I was able to reduce a lot in the past.  I plan on hitting the post office Tuesday!
       
      There are 7 positive, active trade lines even if some are not the best.  Fingerhut, CreditOne, Indigo stood out.  I am going to add them to my Discover and my banks CC, that should help in the long run.
       
      Thanks in advance!
