So I have a charge off on TU. Reporting since 2011 for a few thousand. Sold to a JDB. I've tried disputing by writing a letter as not mine. Jack attack. I tried redisputing it with a MOV. Twice came back but they didn't respond. Any other suggestions or ideas? I'm trying the BBB now...

Then you need to send them GW letters to get them to remove it. I dont think contacting the BBB is a good idea because they are doing nothing wrong and will make your GW request that much harder.

You might be better off paying it since it's a valid debt and GW them to death later.

TU didn't respond to my MOV within 15 days (took them like 30 days plus). Also, they never provided a name, address in the letter as required. I'm putting the pressure on them via BBB complaint. So far not much progress.

I've called them and they said it is out of their hands. It sold off to a JDB and said I had to talk to them. I've gotten EQ and EX to delete it off just not TU. Since TU didn't respond to my MOV legally - breaking the FCRA - shouldn't they have to delete it?

I am assuming that your method of verification request was sent to the CRA under FCRA 611(a)(7), requesting they provide a description of the procedures used in determing the verification of a concluded dispute with them.
Yes, they are required to provide names of those to which they forwarded the dispute, so if they failed to do so, they would be in violation of section 611(a)(7).
Violations of the FCRA are handled administratively by way of formal complaint to the FTC, or by bringing your own civil action.
Section 611(a)(7) does not require deletion of the previously disputed information based on any such violation. Any sanction depends upon the outcome of the admin or civil action.
