I sent DVs to the collection agency that filed the judgement. They actually called me and told me that they could not provide verification, lol. However, I paid the thing a couple years ago already, so I suppose there is nothing they have to validate. I filed disputes knowing that they wouldn't be able to verify, and it was deleted from one report (EQ) and left on the other two as verified. I just don't have any legitimate reason to dispute, and I they will not allow me to vacate.
The GW thing gets me no where with the paid collecitons. However, TU I might be able to get off there if I dispute again. I got some deleted with disputes, and honestly at this point I know this comes down to the CRA as the agency will keep validating. This is that CA that I always complain about itemizing one medical bill out to look like multiple accounts. After my disputes, I have 2 on TU, 20 on EX and 8 on EQ. Tells you just how random they are with deletions and how different each bureau is. These 20 accounts are LITERALLY all one bill, that was itemized out. Some have been removed through deletion and the rest are stuck. The OC refuses to intervene, so after we close on the house I am going to file with the CFPB because it is my opinion that a CA does not have the liberty to turn one bill into 20 accounts.
BK- obviously not going to budge.
I really appreciate all the insight you have given me though, as you have been consistent with offering advice Shogun, and I truly appreciate it so much!! You earned those 760+ scores in more ways than one!

Jandj80 Se my siggy NO is not an option. first off Id write the attorney general of your state about the account one that is being reported as 20 individually. So against Reporting Act. If creditors could do that they would make 3 accounts for every one and split their fee and then interest into 2 seperate accounts so fight that with a proper communication with Ag of your state. 2nd you said you paid a judgement to get it off your reports did u ever go to court or did the judgement just show on your report? Were you served if not petition the court for improper service even though its paid. get back to me on ?'s I asked Im sure you are giving up without using the full arsenal. Pm me when you get a chance

Also i dont know when you plan to close but if you get right on these things you could have your Lo do a rapid rescore and possible say thousands over the course of the loan if your score goes up and you get better interest rate

I did not know I could write the AG. I am going to try the CFPB first, and then I will take that road after.
We close on the 28th so I can't risk anything going to dispute or changing. Our midscore at approval was 613, and they locked interest at 4.0% at that time. I honestly can't complain about that rate as with our credit it is still very good. I know others are getting low to mid 3 percent ranges, but we'd need a 640+ to get that and I don't think we will be that close. I assume we are sitting mid 620's now and everything is updated on credit that will before they repull on the 21st.
We did get served for the judgement. We did not go to court, I just called and paid the account once the judgement papers arrived. I didn't want it to go to garnishment. I asked the CA if I could talk to their attorney about vacating, and they said he won't agree as they follow strict rules about proper reporting.
I will certainly try the AG if the other methods don't work! Thanks for the new insight!

It's a free monthly service if you have a GE Walmart card and sign up for paperless billing.
