Dispute Turned in to a Fraud Alert
I have been disputing items on my credit report since January. I have had limited success with getting some items taken off my report (About 1/2 of all disputed). The other half I have been having major problems. I have sent a Method of Verification letter, then an Intent to file a complaint with the FTC letter. I have actually filed a complaint with the FTC on Trans Union. I am about to file the complaints for Experian and Equifax. My problem is that Experian put an extended fraud alert on my credit report after I sent the FTC intent letter to them and now all three bureaus have put the alert on my report. I seriously think this is a stall tactic by Experian. I did respond to their letter demanding they take it off and telling them that I will file complaints wit the FTC, my AG and eventually sue them. I also requested statistics on what type of criminal steals someones credit report in order to fix the problems on it. I am sick of getting basic standard letters and feeling like they don't think that I will follow through with my promises to file these complaints and sue. Any ideas on how to combat this issue with them?
