    This particular account is for a 70.00 bill that was paid to the Dr. but he has no record of my account. I unfortunately have no record of the checks to prove I sent them.

    I would leave out the line statting you have no proof you paid it, never give them too much information.

    Hi Carrie,

    You may want to call Experian (800-493-1058) and ask for the address to send disputes to. I did last week before sending out another round of disputes and was told the P.O. Box for disputes is 9595, not 9556. They have different box nbrs for different types of coorspondences, plus I'd read on these boards that sometimes they close out a PO Box and open up a new one.

    Also, I think you need to say why you're disputing (not my account, should say paid, wrong balance, whatever) otherwise they may say it's a frivilous dispute because they don't know what they're supposed to investigate.

    Another thing, you may want to include your Date of Birth under your SSN and don't forget to put in the report number that is on your Experian report.

    My handwritten letter looks like this:

    Date xx-xx-xx

    Dear Experian,

    Please investigate the following items:

    Creditor so-and-so, #xxxxxxx - Not Mine
    Creditor such-n-such, #xxxxxx - Dublicate Item
    Creditor blah-blah, #xxxxx - Dublicate Item
    Creditor yet-another, #xxxxxxxx -Not Mine

    Thank you, (my signature)

    (my name and address)

    SSN: xxx-xx-xxxx
    DOB: xx-xx-xx
    Report #xxxxxxxxxx
