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.

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.

      Hi, I've gone into a bit of credit card debt that I cannot pay. 4 separate cards totalling around 25k. Amex has just emailed me saying that my account has been transferred to Zwicker & Associates for collections. I have basically no assets, just a cheap old car and household items. I moved out of the country a year ago and unfortunately have had trouble with work due to Covid and starting over here, so I ran up my credit cards. How should I respond to the coming collection letters and what are my options from here? Thanks so much.

      Hi All - I am new here.
      We are looking for help on how we can move our high APR CCs to 0% with a BT to new cards.
      We have the following CCs with CL info. We are looking to do BTs to 0%. We opened a couple cards but got low CL, asked for a higher CL but were denied. We opened up US Bank cards to do BTs but got CL of $500 - 600. I tried asking US Bank to increase our CL to no avail. I thought we can leverage our open CL's on other CC, meaning I can lower the CL on a Citi card with 0% util and they would give me more but the CCC said it would not help.
      One thing I noticed, we had been saying we earn $45k but we did not realize we earn $80k...
      We are not sure what to do next.
      I assume we should move around some CL or balances to bring the CS back up, then open a new card or raise the balance on a card with a BT offer, and do the BT.
      I will look into getting the CR's to review if anything is not supposed to be there.
      Meanwhile, these are the cards for me and DW.
      ME, FICO 726 owe CL CL utiliz.

      Almost 40 days ago I sent in 3 dispute letters to all 3 CRA's. I received nothing back from EQ, EX sent me a copy of my report with no changes or notes, and TU deleted 4 accounts. Is there any way to leverage TU to help with the other CRA's? Thank You for any help!

      Can I get some guidance on how to remove some old paid off charge offs from my CRs?
      -CAP 1 paid charge off in 2016
      -CAP 1 paid  charge off closed in 2015 
      -Santander paid charge off in 2017
      -An old student loan  that was 120 days late that was closed to transfer in 12/17
      Covid hit me hard so I have tons of charge offs and collections for other accounts that are recent that I know I won't be able to do anything with
      Any advise would be greatly appreciated
      Thank you
