A CO is a prior accounting measure taken by the creditor, and is not negated by any subsequent payment, non-payment, or status of the account.
Thus, getting a CO deleted, other than by a GW request, requires showing that their taking of the CO was improper as a matter of fact.
If the account was delinquent at the time they exercised that accounting measure, it is next to impossible to challenge their busijess decision.
It is noted that one of the COs was apparently taken on an account that is asserted to have been fraudulently opened.
The FCRA identity theft process makes provision for blocking any information that is asserted to have resulted from fraud or identity theft from your credit report, provided you follow the procedure of filing a police report stating that you never authorized the account, and thus its opening was the result of someone using your identity.
Have you filed a police report regarding that account, and sent it to the CRA?

I would suggest a formal complaint for the LVNV Funding account since you know it is not your debt. Requesting DV through the BBB since they are not providing it directly, LVNV will normally include a fraud affidavit with their response, for you to complete and return. Once they receive the notarized affidavit, I believe they delete shortly thereafter. Better Business Bureau of Upstate South Carolina would service that complaint.

That's exactly what I did. The whole process took about two weeks. It's already been deleted on Experian. Haven't check the other two. Thanks for the advice.
