Re: Classic TheNewWorldMan: How the credit bureaus update your reports

Ahh yes, how true.

 

This is also the case when it comes to a company charging you money versus refunding money back to you. Smiley Wink

That, of course, was the point -- part of the humor of the post. But I agree that it would take a geek to catch it! Gotta love inside jokes. Smiley Wink

Re: Classic TheNewWorldMan: How the credit bureaus update your reports

Very true.

I paid off my Capital One credit card online on the 13th of July my billing cycle ends on the 22nd....I looking to make a major purchase and I have become frustrated that its taking so long to update. Generally Cap 1 info is on my TU CR buy the 26th of the month at the latest!

Remember that credit bureaus use different methods to receive and process good versus bad credit information.

Information that would negatively affect your credit rating--like a late pay or charge-off--is instantly beamed from the creditor to the agency via Department of Defense 256-megabit fiber optic lines and written to their servers in 8.6 milliseconds.

Information that would positively affect your credit rating is scribed onto scrolls in special ink by Gregorian monks, which are then painstakingly illuminated. The Credit Scrolls are then placed onto camel caravans which wind their way to the credit bureau headquarters by way of Marrakesh, Dubai, and Tripoli. Once the caravan reaches Equifax, Experian or TransUnion, the scrolls are then laid out in the sun for a week so that the special ink can be read. (Note that the weather around the credit bureau headquarters is notoriously gloomy, like FICO itself, so finding seven consecutive days of sunshine can be quite an ordeal in and of itself.) Only then can the information finally be encoded into your credit files...


I miss you, hauling!

Re: Classic TheNewWorldMan: How the credit bureaus update your reports

[ Edited ]

So true I have one account I closed back in Feb of this year and the creditor has yet to report it has closed.  The last update was in December of 2011.  Another Creditor has been reporting a closed account since 1997 and that account was closed with a 0 balance and in good standing.  Sometimes I just don't get the logic that these banks use.

 

At anyrate its not hurting me so I suppose it does not really matter.
