Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

Sadly TU sucks and takes forever to update. They are always AT LEAST a month behind the other guys as far as updating.
09/28/07 EQ 498 EX 537 TU 477
12/27/07 EQ 526 EX 562 TU 541
02/26/08 EQ 526 EX 589 TU 579

Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

Same advise from the other person. I pulled 3 credit reports and see the same number. I just don't know why there slow maybe even under staffed is the problem. I plan on only pulling them every 3 months I can save money that way.
Everyone above 610...

The reason is that TU is...a hater. Can't stand 'em.

Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

TU updates 1/2 my changes - technically TU updated all my changes - the un-updated some of them...
EX updates the other 1/2
EQ is the hater IMO, they haven't updated anything for me, except of course for the increased balance on my Crap1 CO lol
Start 2/2008: TU 495 || EX 539 || EQ 528

Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

This is so weird......TU is my highest score, fastest updater, ( is that even a word? ) quickest with my disputes and I actually speak with a human every time I call!!
 
Now, on the other hand don't get me started on EX....(a.k.a., the devil)  They REFUSE to re-dispute ANYTHING!! And, they are my lowest score.:smileymad:
 
I wonder if it is where you live?!

Sunrise, I have long held the belief that the CRA that services your geographic reason is the toughest on you (with the exception of EX who just hates everyone). I live in TU-land, therefore they are the haters for me.

Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

Maybe upon issuance of a SSN, your name is randomly assigned to one credit bureau and from then on it's their job to make your credit life more miserable than the other two do, by any and all means possible...
 
It's a conspiracy!

Re: Help!! Don't understand TU

I think that's EX-land. However, you seem to be in the same position that I was in about 8 months ago, where they all hated me. I was in the high 400s, low 500s on all. You will get there. :smileywink:
