Is the judgment for CapOne or MCM? Or is it unrelated?

 

Is MCM related to CapOne?

 

Are there balances on CapOne or MCM?

If you are past SOL or have the $$$ to PIF, then offer a PFD to CapOne. They are a tough nut to crack. I have never seen a successful PFD for CapOne. I tried it myself for DW's account too. They don't budge and they are very quick to sue if inside SOL. IMO, try a few times with the PFD. If that doesn't work, IMO, pay them in full. Likely it is still being factored into utilization and paying it could easily help your score. But don't sent any letters until SOL expires or you have the $$$.

 

MCM - if you have the $$$ or SOL expired, then DV. If they verify, them PFD.

 

PR - Do the same, DV, then PFD if verified and ask for the judgment to be vacated. Maybe someone else can chime in though. I'm a bit weak on PRs.

Unfortunately, PRs can't be DVed. The time to DV a debt that resulted in a judgment (or any other PR) is *before* it became a PR.

The OP's lost all bites at the apple in forcing the creditor/plaintiff into *proving* that it's an accurate debt. The best s/he can do is see if there are grounds for a vacatur (suit was filed on a time-barred debt, improper service, etc) and then respond to the court with a demand for proof of debt (if the plaintiff/creditor re-files).
