What causes errors or mistakes on credit reports?
Here are some mistakes that we have been seeing lately:
- A monthly balance reporting on a closed or charged off account
We dispute the accuracy of an account and the debt collector or creditor does not flag it as “Disputed.”
- We dispute the accuracy of a tradeline and the creditor reports it as “Dispute resolved”
- We have seen a lot of times when a account is paid after charge off but continues to be reported as charged off instead of “paid after charge off.” This is a huge error to make on someone’s credit report.
- We tell a debt collector that our client no longer disputes its collection item and the debt collector refuses to remove the dispute code. No mortgage lender is going to lend money if any item on the credit report is disputed.
