Updating KD during DV

Gotta love texas. Sent a company a dv cmrrr on 8/20, haven gotten a response..but they keep updating as a KD. Is that allowed - meaning don't they have to suspend everything until they validate or at the very least respond?

Re: Updating KD during DV

Key derogatories are a relatively new status update and primarily used by EX from what I''ve read - they are now using KD to represent any major derog. and it apparently destroys your score - im not sure about activity after a DV - I know they are not allowed to continue collection activites but I'm not sure if that also means they cannot contiue to report "accurately" - I'd be interested to know this too

Starting Score: TU:619 (02/24/2012) - EQ:629 (02/24/2012)
Current Score: TU:632 (06/21/2012) - EQ:672 (06/21/2012)

Re: Updating KD during DV

THey are not allowed to post any negative information pending a debt validation.   Various courts have ruled that posting kds are a form collection activity.  Which makes sense, why else would they be harming your credit score if not to get you to feel cooerced enough to give them what they want. Try reading fdcpa section 809.
