Dear Friends,

I need suggestions.

After receiving credit reports from all three agencies, I started to dispute the incorrect information. There were many and the funny thing is that the same account is reported very much differently by different agencies.

After a few weeks I have started to receive corrected reports from all of them. Lo and behold, each of them has corrected some of the inaccuracies but NOT A SINGLE item has been corrected by all three !

e.g. One report says that my dispute with bank X has been corrected but bank Y information remains unchanged. The second agency writes to me that they have corrected the information on bank Y but bank X information remains unchanged !!!!

What do I do now ? When I pointed out that the other agency said something else, I was told that the report of other agencies carries no weight!!!

The credit bureaus ask me to talk to the banks directly for any further correction and when I call the banks they ask me to protest to the credit bureaus !!


Thanks an advance
