EQ won't update Discover

I'm an AU on DH Discover card.  We paid the balance off in February this year.  My EQ still shows the old bal of 936.  The CL is only 1000, this is hurting my util. 

 

Any suggestions on how I can get it updated?  It updates on his reports every month 

Where I was 8/22/08 TU 581 EQ 554 EX 615
Where I am 7/30/09 EX 737 (FAKO) EQ 689 TU 745
Can't wait to see what my scores will be when all my accounts hit the 1 year mark!

Re: EQ won't update Discover

Do not have him dispute the balance through the CRA unless he wants the AU account removed from his CR.  If a dispute is initiated, it should be through the CR of the account holder.  Any dispute of any info on AU is very likely to get the account deleted off CR of AU.

 

You should call Discover and ask them why they have not updated and request it be updated.

I noticed the same thing with EQ and my Discover card. EX and TU have updated through April, but EQ's last update was in February.

Re: EQ won't update Discover

I'm AU on a Discover, and my EQ full report and a 5/7 myFICO report shows an update in May.

Don't forget that EQ payment data doesn't always transmit well to third-party reports.

If you call Discover to ask that they update, you might want to check your balance first. There's a good chance that they'll update then and there, and so whatever your balance is right now will be reported, and then presumably updated again at the regular time.

I'm in East Tennessee, and I go directly through Equifax, thank goodness. I've heard nothing good about CSC.
