I had a Barclay card that was 120+ late. Balance was $47xx. I was contacted by these guys.
I called Barclay and they refused to talk to me and told me to contact ^them. I spoke with them and we agreed to settle the debt for $2000. I made the payment 2 months ago. I don't have anything in writing but I do have both of the phone calls I had with them recorded.
Now when I look at my credit report via the capital one app, it shows I have a delinquent account with Barclay for $47xx. No 0 balance with charge off remarks.
My question is, who do I contact about getting that reported properly?
As I understand the post, only the OC is reporting, and it now reporting a status of 120-late with a balance.
If you have paid the debt, then the creditor is required under FCRA 623(a)(2) to "promptly" update the status to paid, and the balance to $0.
No removal of derogs, such as the 120-late or any charge-off, is required.
The requirment to "promptly" update is not in terms of days, weeks, etc.
It is a subjective period.
A reasonable interpretation of "promptly" would be in their next regular monthly reporting cycle, which can be at least 1 1/2 months.
I would first call the creditor and make sure they have recieved notice of payment. If they then do not update within 45'ish days, I would file a dispute.
