I think you should dispute this error with Equifax. I have actually found them easy to work with. I'm sure you won't have any problems clearing this up. I had a problem similar to this with Providian. When I received my upgrade to my gold card, they changed my account number. My credit reports showed that I had two accounts. One was a pretty high balance & the other was pretty low. The low one was correct. I called & disputed this with the CRA's & this was corrected on all reports very quickly.
BTW, we ARE very proud of you regarding your inquiries. Hang in there, BELIEVE ME, I know it's tough to resist. I'm trying to wait for approx. 5 mths before I apply for new credit. I will have no more negatives on any of my reports save for one 30 day late from 5 years which should not be an issue with many creditors.
Thanks, yes i have resisted temtation. You bring up a good point, Aria recently gave me a new card, same account just different number. I am sure this is why. I just want this off, because it makes my total debt look so high.
Dispute only the reported balance of the old account. If successful, this would leave it as a positive and long lasting tradeline in your report.
This is very true Saar. I disputed the balance on the old account. It was changed to a zero balance & noted that the account had be something like "sold" or "reassigned". The old account is still listed as a positive account.
If you try to dispute the 5 year old "Was 30", I bet you will probably be able to have it taken off, especially if it's on a closed account. It's unlikely that they are keeping records on line for that long that can be easily verified.
When you do dispute it, insist in the dispute letter that they provide the name and contact information of whomever the contacted to 'verify' the information.
It's likely that they will just take it off as 'unable to verify' as the CRA will likely not even want to be bothered with verifying a five year old R2, Was 30.
Actually it is an open account & I did just what you suggested. I even wrote a letter to the company, but to no avail. It was verified. I did however dispute other 30 day lates & had approx. 5 or 6 removed! Due to that success, I can't complain about the one that is left. Thanks for your suggestion!
