Ok, so I disputed an account with Credit Protection Associates they claimed to be collecting for Comcast but I've never been late or had an issue with my Comcast account. When I first noticed them on my report I called Comcast and they agreed so I disputed the account with all three CRA and it was deleted. I just got an email letting me know the status of my dispute was ready on EQ do I checked it and it says the account has been verified and now it's back on my report. I saved the original notification that the account had been deleted. Should I just send that to EQ and tell them to delete it again? They never notified me of the reinsertion. They also put ALL of my old address back on my report. I am so pissed!! My score dropped 10 points
If your 100% positive that your completely up to date with Comcast and there is not possibility this is yours. I'd get as much info from the CA as possible hopefully the original Comcast account # and then call Comcast and make them fix it. They probably wont be super helpful at first and the front line CSR's probably can't do much, but if you can get Comcast to tell the CA they got the wrong guy its more likely to go away for good that way.
Also did the CA actually provide validation?? Or anything besides the name of the OC?? I'm sure CA's get the "You got the wrong guy" all the time, but you might be able to send them a recent Comcast bill that shows your current...? Not sure what other people around here might think about that??? but to me if you've got nothing to hide why the heck not.
They do sometimes come back.
