Hey Christine, I have an issue with Household bank. I know we discussed this previously in the past. On my Experian credit report they have my status listed at Balance Current status Past Due Amount $0 Repossession. But on my Transunion account its listed as Last Report on February, 2004 Balance Current status Past Due Amount $8,313 120 days past due $188. Should I dispute the Transunion account, since it is not past dues and I do not owe them $188?

Yes, definitely dispute the balance, it is KILLING your scores.

If they verify, demand accounting from Household.

Hey Christine, On my Experian account it says the status was verified as of 3/2004. All of this happened in 2002. Should I get them to reverify the date.

"Your statement : LITIGATION PENDING."

Is that YOUR statement? Are they suing you?

I would dispute the status date.

It looks like Equifax is aging correctly:

"Date of Last Activity July, 2001"

Unfortunately, Experian does not disclose the aging date.

Hey Christine here is an update. I disputed the Status date on Experian. Household verified it and now it says Forclosed "Account History:
Foreclosure as of 2-2004" Experian will not dispute this anymore. They are telling me to contact Household. SO, I am not sure where to go from here with this.

Also, I am not sure where the "Litigation Pending" is coming from.

It's really important that the date of foreclosure is correct (the older, the better). Do you know when they actually began foreclosing (filing of the notice of default) and when they became the owners of the property?

I believe it became their property 6/2002. I am not sure of the date it started, as there was a lot of going backwards and forward, as I had a buyer for the property, they would not respond to me about working with them on the short sell price and I lost the buyer for the property.

It makes a HUGE difference to your credit rating whether Household foreclosed in 2002 or 2004.

So I would send a snail mail dispute to Experian.

Do you think it will to any good to contact Household? My initial thoughts are no it would not.

I don't know - you certainly can't sue them for not responding and continuing to report incorrectly if you contact them directly.

If you know you're not going to sue, it can't hurt - other than wasting your time.

Well if they do continue to report this incorrectly I will sue them. So I will do both contact them and send a letter to Experian and Transunion.

Hey Christine, How long do you think I should wait for a response from Household before I take legal action? Its been two weeks since I sent them a registered letter demanding that they report the status of my account correctly. I got a return receipt, so I know they got the letter.

"you certainly can't sue them for not responding and continuing to report incorrectly if you contact them directly."

You need to wait for the verifications from the CRAs.

Exactly, that's why I posted on May 6:

"I don't know - you certainly can't sue them for not responding and continuing to report incorrectly if you contact them directly.

If you know you're not going to sue, it can't hurt - other than wasting your time."

You could possibly sue for defamation under state law, but not for FCRA violations.

OK I am confused here. Household is reporting that the house was foreclosed on 5/2004 and that the account is still open. The property was foreclosed on 6/2002. I have sent several letters demanding that they report this account correctly and they have not. Are you saying I can not sue them for reporting incorrect information to the Credit agencies??

Exactly. That's what I've been saying.

Are there any words you don't understand? :-)

Did you get a response from them?

Household verified incorrectly to Experian and Transunion that the property was foreclosed on in 5/2004 and that the account was still open. I did not contact Household. I am really stuck here now. I do not know where to go from here. You are saying that I can not sue Household for repeatedly reporting this information. How can I get household to report this information correctly?

Sue them. If they verified incorrectly through bureau disputes, you're ok.

All right. Now just remember that you don't sue them for incorrect reporting, but for incorrect verifications of your disputes. That's most important!

OK thanks! I have a few questions:

Do you know where to serve Household?

Who should I name in lawsuit?

Can you help me with the lawsuit in creditfactors.com site?

I can't give any legal advice because I'm not a lawyer. All I can do show people what I did, and even better, what lawyers did. I've been purchasing copies of all the filings in major FCRA cases and am scanning so people can copy what the best lawyers in the field do.

I just look at the reporting and help people find all the incorrect data so they have a good case.

Who to sue and where to serve depends on "which" Household reports on the credit.

And that's actually something that we should discuss at http://www.fight-back.us/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=6 because I just started that new forum with software that's easier to admin. Post there the name/address on your credit report.
