    I was curious as to who are the hardest companies to deal with they you have had experiences with?

    I have settled judgements with Beneficial, Sears, and American General. I was curious how hard they are to get off of your reports?

    Also I was curious when you start messing with creditors that are not paid does that awake sleeping dogs since some of my creditors are not paid and they have discontinued contacting me? I have not heard from several for years!!! Like Dillards and JC Penny's. Really Dillards has not contacted me for at least 3-4 yrs and it is scheduled to drop off my report in March of 2003. But they are still reporting as a charge off to the CRA's as of June 2001.

    JC Penny's is the same way! They have not contacted me for several years and it is to drop off in March of 2003 and it was reported as a charge off as of 9-2000.

    I am just not sure what to do since alot of my debt is scheduled to drop off in 2003. 10 of 13 items (not counting judgements.

    Any advise?

    If they haven't been paid, and they aren't bothering you, I would leave them alone. If they are unpaid, they will usually come back verified, cause they still want the money. They may not have you're current address, and you will be giving it to them if you dispute the accounts.

    Depends what is the sol in your state? If the sol has expired I would send them validation letters. It works, as long as the sol has past.

    I think the SOL in my state (kansas) is seven years. Now from what date do I take that?? I think the SOL would be up the same time they fall off my report

    Aren't judgements processed through the courts? I have a few paid judgements, and when the CRA verified, they sent the request to the court where the judgement was granted.

    If I'm missing something, let me know..

    My hardest to deal with are Sears and Beneficial National Bank. At least Sears has some truth to it. Beneficial's remark is totally false and they won't responde. my latest dispute with them hits 30 days today. I'm ready with a validation letter and court papers to follow that one.

    I don't have any judgments, Its a collection account and get this they claim by law they must report the item for seven years or they lose their privileges with the CRAs.

    If that is not BS, I don't know what is.

    As far as creditors go the worst by far has been First USA Bank. They are just plain nasty and don't care about their customers. I had to write to the president of the company before I even got a response and even then it was with an attitude. If I wasn't buying a house I would have told them where to go.

    As far as credit bureaus go, the worst is Merchants Association Credit Bureau. They are the TU affiliate located in Tampa. Even when you send them proof that a negative entry isn't yours it takes them forever to make a correction! I can't wait to sue them in small claims court. Right now I'm in the process of completing my paper trail.
