Can you put that in laymans terms LOL

They have to tell you when the report.


It sounds like they're no longer reporting, though, so I'd just leave well enough alone.  Alerts from 2007 don't matter.  The current contents of your credit report are the important thing.

Re: As usual, I'm confused!

Did they previously provide you notice of their collection, or did you only become aware of it by pulling your CR?

Re: As usual, I'm confused!

I had no idea who or what ANFI was until today when I pulled the report. I saw it listed here in the forums, but until I checked, and saw it in the alerts, I hadn't seen or heard of it regarding myself.


I understand that from 2007 is quite a long time, and they're not showing in active collections, but I find it unsettling that I didn't know prior to 2012!
