Another Cap One Issue

Here's the situation: I had a cap one account several years ago that was included in bk. I recently opened a new account with them. The old account is showing derogatory on TU credit report I just pulled. Do I need to dispute with CRA or send GW to Cap One? Thanks.

Re: Another Cap One Issue

My bk was discharged in 2004.  It is listed as bad debt/co.

I would send copies of the BK paperwork to the credit bureaus especially if it was included in the bankruptcy.  Send a copy of discharge letter, list of creditors with Capital One showing that includes their name and your gw letter asking for the deletion.   It worked for me, I got the Tu credit report to prove it.

I wouldn't send any BK papers to the CRAs. Don't help them. Make 'em do their job. If they don't wanna verify incorrect info, then they have to delete it.
 
For a debt included in a BK, and I'm assuming we're talking BK7 here, they have to list it as closed, $0 balance, and they can list IIB (Included In BK). They cannot list late unless it went late before you filed.
 
I would simply dispute it as inaccurate.
