FYI, when one credit agency puts negative information on your credit report, they share it with the other agencies. However, when you submit a correction, they _don't_ share it!If you ever need to make a correction, you must contact _all_ of the agencies.In 1992, I was denied a Discover card because a delinquency was erroneously listed on my credit report (by The Associates). Discover identified the agencies they got the reports from (2 of the big 3). I fixed the error with those 2 companies and then got my Discover card.Lo and behold, while applying for a mortgage in 1996, I learned Equifax was still reporting the delinquency!Even if you get a problem cleared up with one agency - save your paperwork indefinitely! The error may still come back to haunt you.--Mike
