Are Credit Unions subject to FCRA?

i want to to dispute a negative item on my EQ credit report noted by Power Financial CU.  I had a dormant checking account with them. and a former student loan provider issued an EFT withdra from this acccount.  it was a rarely used account that went negative, because i only had a few dollars in it.  and did not notice until i was sent a notice that the account had been closed.  i immediately sent a money order to of cover the EFT, but stated this was an unauthorized transfer. 

 

a few weeks later it reported as unpaid, closed account (with a balance) and negative.  i want to send power financial a letter that they are in violation of FCRA qnd are reporting unfair and inaccurate information...

 

what do you suggest?

Re: Are Credit Unions subject to FCRA?

If i understand it correctly, anyone reports to the CRA's is subject to FCRA.

 

I may have missed something, your CR states unpaid closed acct with a balance correct?

Did the CU accept the MO you sent to cover the neg balance?

 

Did your student loan provider  fix the transfer error?

Re: Are Credit Unions subject to FCRA?

yes, the report says it is unpaid, closed and shows the balance. However, the balance it shows is actually LOWER that what i sent them with the money order. They show $263, owed on the account.  The actual Money Order was for$303.  But, yes they accecpted the MO I sent CMRR.

 

I was granted a deferment, however the student loan provider defaulted to this DORMAnT checking account that I had not used very much in the past few years. 

 

thanks
