Re: Identity Theft Victim - HELP!

Another round of disputes sent today to the credit bureaus and collection agencies. I also have been in contact with my states Attorney General to see if he can help. We shall see, its just a waiting game now.

Re: Identity Theft Victim - HELP!

What CB was it here in the last 1 or 2 years that was sued by an individual?  I can't recall exactly, but whichever one it was LOST a HUGE settlement (try in the millions), because they refused to remove erroneous information from the individual's report.  You should contact a lawyer and start these proceedings against the creditors AND the bureaus, and use this particular lawsuit/case as precedent.  Any good case lawyer would have a field day with this!

Found an article about it!
 
 
 
Now you can Google more articles, since her name is listed in that one.  Good luck, and please reply back here within this thread with any new info you get (including the meeting with the lawyer), since many of us are keeping track of it.

Wow, sounds like what I am going through.
 
 
I am going to scan and post some of my information, police report, letter from the DA, bureau responses (edited of course to remove sensitive data) to let you all see the trouble I have been going through.

http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2007/11/ftaccuracy.shtm

The Federal Trade Commission and the federal financial regulatory agencies (the Agencies) have approved proposed regulations and guidelines to help ensure the accuracy and integrity of information provided to consumer reporting agencies and to allow consumers to directly dispute inaccuracies with financial institutions and other entities that furnish information to consumer reporting agencies. This information is widely used to determine eligibility for credit, employment, insurance, and rental housing.

Re: Identity Theft Victim - HELP!

OMG! I just stumbled across this long letter that you wrote, and I was in a daze reading this story.  Wow - I am so sorry that this happened to you. I am writing to tell you that You are NOT alone!!  Almost the same exact thing happened to me several years ago, and I have been going through the same BS for close to 10 years ... I was getting ready to attend college and the "friends of a friend" that I rented a room from in TX did that very same thing to me!!  I have gone through so much and the cycle continues!  I cannot take it any longer and feel that there is no one out there to REALLY help those ID theft victims re-build their lives with the credit bureaus.  I have been through 3 lawyers, several credit repair services and other "fix-it" services and all a big waste of time and money.  Seems the only thing we can do is to really be careful with the creditors and other services we use, and be sure that they actually report to all three - Acurately!  Please feel free to email me - maybe we can come up with a solution!
