    I will let you know, I am in the process of filing a complaint with the AG of Va, I just finished completing the form but I had to attach an addtional letter b/c the space they provided did't give me enough room to explain my complaint. I also filed with the FTC but they are worthless, they sent me a file explaining my rights, DUH I know my rights that is why I filed in the first place. I will post if I receive any repsonse.

    I just did the same, and am awaiting the results. Mine is for a long distance carrier who placed a derogatory entry onmy credit report, (wrong name and addy.) When I disputed it, they sent me a form asking me for ss#, address, full name, etc.

    I sent a response saying if you placed it, you must know enough info to retract it. I gave them the account number, and copied the entry from my credit report. I got absolutely no response, so I filed a complaint with the AG in my state. I sent the form in, plus copies of the letters and Cert mail receipts. They AG sent a response saying they are working on it, and will advise me of results. They also sent me a phone number to track the progress, and the letter was hand signed.

    I hope it works, nothing else has!

    I've had two companies get admonition letters, one removed after this, the other did on 2 CR's, not the 3rd...but I think the AG is a big help.

    I've had good luck with the BBB's when it comes to inquiry removal
