Why does an account continue to have status updates even though it has been closed?
I have a mortgage account that was closed after a short sale and the balance is 0 since 2011. But there were status updates up until 2013 so it appears to creditors that my account was not closed until 2013 when they run my report. Why does this happen? Can it be disputed if it's an error?
