    I have just gotten a reply from Experian. They will not remove a wrong address unless I send they a driver's license and utility bill. They never ask for this information before. Is this normal and should I resend the letter and cc my attorney on it?

    The company that put the wrong address had to PROVE NOTHING!!!!

    The CRA's just take their word for it...

    Don't expect Experian to delete address information even if you do return the utility bill, and drivers license.

    I never even got a request for that information, my request to remove addresses that were irrelevant with them are still lamenting in the pending pile after more than a year... "Please note that certain items may not display until later because they required additional processing."

    I had something like 8 wrong addresses listed on Experian. All were butchered versions of 3 real addresses (two apts within the same same complex) and then another apt. They didn't have the last house I rented, even though I've provided it for them. In the past I tried to get them to change it to the correct addresses, but they refused. I got them to remove ALL the addresses that were wrong. Heh, now they only have me at my current address.

    I suppose you could change FDCPA for FCRA if you wanted to be 100% right with them :)

    This is what did it for me:

The following items are not correct:
