I will tell you this though... I paid a judgement and later disputed it. EQ deleted it! I would definately dispute it. I'm with you guys. I don't understand how they can keep judgements on for 7 years. If you have a dispute with a neighbor and you lose the case fine. You pay and that should be the end of it. But why should that affect your credit. It has nothing to do with credit. I've read somewhere that a criminal record can also be listed in your credit report. Is this true?

I'm assuming that I will have to contact the court to have the judgement deleted if this is indeed the case? I paid the judgement within a couple weeks and now it's showing up on my CR's.
