I had disputed a couple of falsely redated collection items from 6/97 and 7/97, now allegedly charged off in 3/00. On Monday, I spent several hours on this board and then checked my mail. Experian had finally responded, claiming to have verified these defamatory items of disinformation from Gulf State Credit of Duluth, Georgia. Along with the response, Experian included a new credit report. Whether Experian actually contacted Gulf State Credit, I can only speculate. But there WAS a change in the new report. These pompous guardians of confidential information had managed to change my date of birth. There are several logical possibilities here, but here the two most likely: (1) There is a random process of mutation affecting the "information" retained by Experian. Sooner or later, any piece of data can be corrupted by their antiquated equipment or their reckless, illiterate employees. (2) More likely, Experian is so servile, so obsequious, so beholden to its least scrupulous subscribers, that it will swallow any contradiction they happen to report. Could Experian really think that it has never had my correct date of birth; that it was never correctly reported by Citibank and others? Is a casual conversation with Gulf State Credit sufficient to change any and every fact in my report? Experian is a fraudulent and corrupt organization. They can't even maintain the most basic vital statistics. How can they pretend to offer an accurate credit history of me or anyone else?
