The credit unions wrong?

Recommended Posts

On 2 credit sights it shows my auto loan paid, the 3rd dosnt show anything on the loan, no missed payments or anything. Loan was paid over a year ago.  The bank is now saying I still owe 1400$. Don't the credit agencies only display once they have been notified by the loan holder? I'm not sure what to do here. I don't want to pay but I don't want the bank to screw my credit.

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.

 

Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

What shows on the paper reports from all four of the major bureaus? 

 

And, as CV asks...did they provide title after you had paid the loan off?

 

It is not at all uncommon for some lenders, including credit unions, to stop reporting to one bureau or another.  When this happens, balances can be left in limbo.  There is no requirement to report to all four...just that when they DO report, they do so in an accurate fashion.  Which is why we need to know what is on the actual paper reports...

Sorry, I should have put this in the post. The car was totaled so I didn't get a title.

 

I'll get the paper reports asap. Thank you

Was there a defiency in the loan balance after the insurance settled?  Did you have GAP insurance on the loan?

Your insurance company should be able to provide you with the lien release.

 

And, you also did not address whether the balance was correct for the date that it was last updated.  In other words...if I am a furnisher and loaned you $10K, but at the time of my last data update, you owed me $1400 but I never again update that report, the tradeline IS correct insofar as the last update that was provided.  Nothing obligates me to continue reporting data if I determine it is not cost-effective to do so...this is why some of us occasionally look for the 'hidden' tradelines...

To be fair, it sounds like you don't have any idea as to whether you owe a balance or not.  Don't look to a credit report for that information ... there's nothing there to hang your hat on.

 

You need to request a final loan accounting from your lender that shows payments and interest applied to your account, the balance just prior to application of the insurance settlement, and what (if any) residual balance is outstanding.  Mind you, I'm willing to bet your lender's final billing is accurate.  But get a supporting statement just to have confidence in that accuracy.

 

FWIW:  If this is a credit union we're talking about, I'll note that the two I've had loans with allow you to pull up extended loan transaction history online.  So you may be able to short-cut a request for a statement simply by pulling what's available in your online account.
