Is it illegal for credit card co. to delete late payments from an account
I'm new to this board and have truly enjoyed reading the wonderful advise that people contribute. I was just on the credit card board and someone said that they attempted to send a GW letter to an OC. Apparently, the OC replied back saying that deleting lates pays or deliquents from their account is illegal and they're just reporting what's true and accurate.
Is that true about deleting late pays from someone's accounts??? I

The law says that it is illegal to report inaccurate information. The law does NOT say that it is illegal to not report accurate information. (There's a difference.)
Many CSR's believe it's illegal; the higher-ups know it's not. I think it's a violation of their agreements with the CRA's, though, so they don't exactly hand them out like trick-or-treat candy. Deciding to GW (or PFD) is a business decision.
