Totally frustrated, I filed a complaint with the Attorney General of PA. I received a letter today telling me the collection agency can't verify the account so it will be removed from all three credit bureaus. The Attorney General's office sent me copies of the letter they received from Berks Credit & Collections! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to see if the bureaus comply, if not....its off to the magistrate to file a civil suit! I reside in PA. I sent the complaint on 6/4/2001, they responded with a letter telling me they have my complaint on 6/20/2001. They quickly resolved my problem, and it was a BIG problem. Berks reaged the account so it looks like I have a collection from 2001, the "real" date should have been 1996. For me its a HUGE victory as I don't have any collection accounts since 1995, and the sol is gone and most have been removed from my credit files. Just wanted to share my results with everyone.
