HSBC/Best Buy - Capital One - DOFD Reported Inaccurate but Verified over and over again

I have disputed the inaccurate reporting several times but it is still being verified as true and correct.  They are using the last time I paid which was a settlement payment instead of using the date that the account went delinquent.  Can I ask them to provide me with some records to show that date is true and correct?  What should I do if I truly believe the dates are incorrect?

Re: HSBC/Best Buy - Capital One - DOFD Reported Inaccurate but Verified over and over again

On your CR, is there a payment history showing when you first became delinquent and never brought the account current?

 

I have seen where one CRA, EQ in particular, does this.  I don't know why they do.  From my talking with another poster EQ actually told them that is how they do it.  It is not correct. 

 

It may not be the creditor but the CRAs since they are the ones that come up with a drop off date based on information provided by the creditor.

 

You can file a direct dispute with the creditor under FCRA 623(a)(8).

Transunion - doesn't have a DOFD just shows date updated wih is the last payment date, date paid, and date closed.  Shows no payment history. account paid for less than full balance

 

Equifax - Shows no payment history consumer disputes after resolution account paid for less than full balance

 

Experian - used to say Charge Off as Sept 2006 and closed August 2007 but since my last dispute they changed it to say August 2007 account paid for less than full balance

Will they have to provide me with my file if I send them a dispute directly under the FCRA 623 (a)(8)

You may need to pull directly from the CRAs to get that information.

 

What should the DoFD be and what is it reporting now?

I sent you a PM with the direct dispute format.  If you have prior CRs showing the true DoFD or payment history, include those in your dispute.

EQ is the only report that actually lists DOFD I believe. TU and EX show drop off dates. Does 8/2008 clearly show as the DOFD? (vs. date of first major delinquency, status date, reported date, date of last activity).
