The account was sold to OSI and was given to North Shore to collect. I sent a validation to north shore who sent me a letter apologizing an dropping any attempts to collect. I then took a copy of that letter to experian and disputed the gulf states entry that was still there. Today I got an email notification from experian (creditexpert) that gulf states verified it. How the hell can they verify an account they have nothing to do with. Now what should I do. I am writing a complaint to my state atty general and given that gave valid written proof to experian through Credit Data Southwest, the local affiliate, I'm done with experian now also. I gave them until the 29th to respond to my letter but I'm filing my lawsuit on them tomorrow.
