Conflicting DOFDs on the same account?

[ Edited ]

I'm new to the Forum but have been lurking and trying to digest some of this info from you experienced folks.  My question:


  • My most recent TransUnion credit report includes a CA tradeline stating "Estimated date that this item will be removed:  07/2014." 
  • There is no tradeline for the OC on the most recent TU report.
  • The previous TransUnion report does include the OC tradeline stating "Estimated date that this item will be removed:  04/2012."
  • There is no direct reference to a DOFD.

As there is a two year discrepancy regarding the drop-off date, it appears that the CA may have reaged the account.  I'm assuming that this would be an instance to request the FCRA Compliance Date from the CRA.  If it is determined that the CA has reaged the account, do I dispute with the CRA and request deletion on that basis?


Your thoughts/advice, please.

I wouldn't even go through the CRA.


Send the CA a direct dispute under FCRA 623 and tell them you dispute the DoFD and ask how they came up with it.
