If acct in August 2001 by FMCC was sold to NCO/22,wouldn't that be the same account? Both are showing on my reports under different numbers but it's the same.If so,can I dispute it for being a double,which one would I do and how should I word it? thanks
What you are seeing is the original creditor's acct. and a collection agent's account. What the data on your report is confirming to future lenders is that you were unable to settle the account with Ford, and so they charged it off as a bad debt and sent it to NCO for collection activity.
Therefore, these are two legitimate accounts.
I would try a PFD with NCO, though, then some kind of GW letter to Ford.
Just wanted to update that I took a chance and disputed with "duplicate account" and NCO actually deleted it.*shocked* With my luck,it'll probably reappear at some point but wanted to let you know in case my experience can benefit someone else.
