Experian does not delete

I challenged a collection account. It was a bogus account I am not responsible for. TU and EQ deleted them item but experian verified it? I didn't get a letter from the collection agency after verification. I tried to dispute again but ex would not let me. I made a statement it was unauthorized charges. Anyone know why ex is like this? Did they really validate the debt?

Re: Experian does not delete

I've had the same experience with EX.  They seem to validate everything.   Send the dispute by mail, you will need documentation to support your dispute.

Re: Experian does not delete

Samer experience with EX as well.

 

After I mailed the supporting documentation 4 times, they deleted.

 

Prior to that - was coming back as "verified" when they other other CRAs had already deleted.

Re: Experian does not delete

I thought it was the rule that if one CRA deleted then they all had to?  I thought they shared the information?  I'm sure I read that somewhere - may not be right though, just wondering.

 

How do they validate if the CA doesn't respond?

 

 

Edit;  Just read my answer in another thread - apparently the CRAs don't do that with each other, but its up to you or the CA to inform them of the determination.

Re: Experian does not delete

One CRA doesn't care what the other CRAs delete or don't delete.  They don't communicate with each other.
