Dispute frustration! Help!

I am beyond frustrated with my last negative. I had a judgment with Capital One through Rubin and Rothman. I settled the account, satisfaction of judgment was filed. They initially reported partial payment, which I know happens, but they never removed the last balance. I have disputed the account, sent copies of everything and it comes back verified. I contacted Rubin and Rothman and the person won’t return my call. I contacted Capital One and they said they don’t own the account. What can I do? Please help

Who is reporting this?

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

I assume it's Rubin and Rothman because it shows on all 3 credit reports.

Ok, they are breaking the law, the FCRA says one must report accurate information if they do report, this is not accurate, they settled it yes but they also must 0 out the balance. File a complaint with the CFPB.

Adding: Any creditor that has sold an account must also report a 0 balance.

If you have letters and/or your payment amounts showing PIF, send them a letter attaching that information and demand that they comply with FCRA and remove it, via certified mail.

 

It will take some time, but they should update how it is reporting. If it was settled for less than the full amount due, they can legally report that, which is different from a PIF.

Re: Dispute frustration! Help!

Once you have disputed and the reporting has been verified as accurate, you then acquire the right under FCRA 623(c) to bring your own civil action and get the court to order correction.

 

If you dont want to immediately bring a civil action, within which you can also seek damages if you also show that their lack of update was willful or negligent, you can alternately handle administratively by filing a complaint witht he CFPB, which will then result in a letter from the CFPB asking the furnisher of the information for explanation and response.
