    About 2 weeks ago I mailed in a dispute regarding the lates wiht hubby's 95 collection, last week I disputed online for the acount being opened/unpaid, it is paid now and I have been checking the status daily and always got the estimated completion time. Well today I tried to check and it won't let me, just states I can't start an online investigation and to call them if I want to.

    I can't help you mom, I haven't disputed anything online or checked about current disputes while online... but I did want to say I hope you have good luck with it. I know it's been a royal pain in the rear.

    I didn't want to see your post sit with no reponses!

    Thanks, actually when I call them they refuse to talk with me b/c I am not my husband and he is either sleeping or working.

    I will keep you posted on mortgage Nana, nothing yet:(

    I HATE THAT! Somehow we got a card with me as the AU and hubby as the primary and they won't talk to me at all. DH finally got some guy on the phone and said "look, I don't do the money, she does, I don't know anything, she does it all, TALK TO HER!"

    Besides after talking on the phone at work for 8+ hours would you want to talk to anybody???

    The way to check what's going on with the account is to use the confirmation number you got from the representative or online source *after* you started the investigation.

    If you use that confirmation number - and not the one you used to start the dispute - you will see a new report. If you use the confirmation number used to start the in vestigation, it won't give you access until the investigation is complete.

    If the account is still being investigated or deleted, you won't see it on the report. If the account was verified, it will show up on the report.

    When I use the confirmation number given after I started the dispute, I can't get it to show anything either.

    Speaking of which....

    I realize that we should be spreading our disputes to CRAs over a long period of time, however, has anyone had success mixing their disputes over several mediums (i.e. online, telephone, written)? Would that help condense the time? What do you think?
