I am very upset right about now. I logged into my Equifax report to dispute something when I noticed that my previous auto loan, which I filed BK on is listed twice on my report. Once its listed under the right finance company. I had previously disputed it because it wasnt showing that it was included in my BK and it showed as 30-60 days late. Well thats still under investigation but now theres a complete seperate entry on my report from the new company name. They changed their named and so now its showing on there twice. Its the same account number , with the same open date, for the same amount. The only difference is that it reported until April 2012 and I filed BK in January, went to court in Febuary. They were informed that I had filed BK in January.
My question is are they allowed to do that? I disputed the account because I never had a account with the company its listed under. In my details I put I had filed BK on that account and it was already listed on my report, only under a different name.
I havent checked my TU report or Experian yet.
