Let's work together to hold EXPERIAN accountable!!

[ Edited ]
Are these people the absolute worst at customer service? I mean, I've never talked with such a large number of arrogant people in my life, and I'm generally a nice guy over the phone... very focused, but nice.

The "senior level" managers at Experian will flat out tell you: they are only acccountable to the FTC... the Federal Trade Commission division of the government.

Bu##$hit, I say.

All the credit bureaus are slow for a reason: there's MONEY in selling you services to MAKE you want to monitor your credit, to buy your scores, etc. but the only bureau that "sticks it in your eye" is Experian.

First, let me say that I HATE big government, new laws, new regulations, etc. but in some cases there are situations that call for intervention. This is one of those times. I think it's time for us to start a massive letter writing campaign to our Congressional Reps and demand that the FTC be given full power to reign in companies like Experian. No more "30 day" excuses on settling disputes. No more "we still need more time" garbage. No more "we are not accountable to you" audacity. No more "we do not accept phone calls" lies.

Find out who your rep is right here www.house.gov/writerep and email or write to them and start poinding on some doors. Experian must be held accountable.

Just some info to you about what I did, because EX still refuses to give me a proper investigation of my disputes:
1)starting disputing items several months ago
2)redisputed multiple times
3)ask for mov, cmrrr
4)EX responds with "we used an automated verification system," after I specifically stated that I want contact names, addresses, and phone #'s.  I called them about their so called automation system, and asked them for once again, contact names, addresses, phone #'s.  They told me to get them off of my cr.  By now, I'm done!
5)Sent ITS letter,cmrrr, giving them 5 days to delete, or face federal court lawsuit.
6)filed complaints with the FTC, AG, and BBB
 
It's time that we start enforcing our rights as consumers, and I don't know about all of you, but I'm done playing games with these people.

People say "Only apply for credit you NEED"

I say "apply for credit you have PRATICAL use of"

I don't have AMEX card because I don't want a card that suffers from PMS

I'm very glad to hear that others are not putting up with the CRA's crap anymore.  Let's go guys and gals!  We need to pull together and take a stand!  Maybe if enough consumers start complaining and enforcing their rights, the CRA's will be held accountable.
