I DV'd Absolute Collect Service for a med collection that isn't mine, and it's been 30 days. They have not responded to the DV, and it's still showing on my CRs. I searched for what letter to send the CRA to have the acc't removed while it's in dispute, but it seems most of the letters I've read are tailored to CAs who continue to update reporting while in dispute.
1. Before I get myself in trouble, is the CA obligated to remove the account from CRs 30 days after receiving my DV? Or are the only obligated to not update the account while it's in dispute?
2. Do I send a second DV to the CA, or let sleeping dogs lie & proceed w/ a letter to the CRA showing the CA did not respond & requesting deletion?
