I had two tradelines from SONNENSCHEIN Financial Services on my Experian report. Two tradelines for the SAME DEBT first of all AND it wasn't even my debt! I was dealing with this earlier in this year and it went to a hearing and was dismissed as not mine yet a few months later it ended up on my credit.
I called Experian to dispute it on Wednesday, February 13th. Today, I ran my Experian report (annual one) just to get a full look at it since I pull mine usually through my bank's identity theft feature and can't see addresses/drop off dates and what not and I noticed it wasn't there. Came home from work and a letter in the mail saying both tradelines were deleted! It happened so much quicker than I thought it would. I figured it was going to be a hassle and a big mess.
Can't wait to see if this does anything for my score!
