One of CACH LLC attorney franchisee's has an CA account on me. The SOL in my state is another 1.5 years. The amount is a few thousand. Am I better to pay this with the attorney and get CACH LLC to remove from my CR? Or should I try to dispute it more to get it off? I hear people don't have much success with the latter and I don't want them lurking around for years to come.
If the debt is legitimate, your desire for removal is not itself basis for disputing their reporting.
People often dont have success disputing accurate reporting because their dispute lacks a clear assertion of a specific inaccuracy or lacks any documentation to support any such assertion.
Sending frivolous or general disputes in the hope that a furnisher wont verify the accuracy gets what it gives.
Similarly, many will send DVs in the mistaken belief that they compel debt verification, and if not responded to, require CR deletion.
You think DV letter is the way to go? The thing is, they tried to sue me but failed for improper service. I moved to another state in 2008. They claim I went deliquent and defaulted on 2009. My thought is to try and settle it off since they can't locate me.
They aren't the easiest to get removed like you said. I've gone the BBB route with Cach, LNVN, and AA. AA deleted right away, LVNV said no first, then deleted after sent a rebuttall. Cach replied with thye couldn't find my account, then they found it with a higher balance, updated my credit report with the higher balance. They basically responded with they don't call or try to collect, for me to contact Northland Group about the matter. Some people have had luck, just keep disputing, but be careful since you are in SOL. You said they don't know your location though.
