Next hurdle! Equable Ascent Financial.

They are a CA which I paid off in November of 2010.  They show themselves as a Factoring Agent.  It shows the balance at $0 Last payment 11/2010 but now show 2 120 days lates for 2/2011 and 3/2011.   Any advice on how to tackle this one?

Re: Next hurdle! Equable Ascent Financial.

I would like to know the answer to this one as well.  I settled an account with them earlier this year.  I was willing to PFD but they wouldn't budge...

A real life Factoring Company is one who purchases current accounts receivables from a company at a discount.  The Factoring Company gives them the money right away so the other company can finance business.

 

A CA who claims to be a factoring company is not.  They do not buy current accounts, they buy and/or are assigned delinquent accounts to pursue for collections.  Some of them will use the term in order to get away from the rules of the FDCPA.  But, the law knows they are still a collection agency.

 

Who, by the way, cannot put lates on your CR.  Especially if it was paid off in Nov 2010.

 

I would send them a direct dispute under FCRA 623 and dispute the lates for Feb and Mar 2011.
