Hi all,

 

Having just paid off the last of my debt, I'm in the process of tidying up my Credit File.

 

I've looked at my Equifax report, and just noticed that a defaulted Barclaycard account is showing twice. It appears that when Barclaycard sold the debt to Lowell Group, the original entry was marked as a default and "satisfied" then Lowell have registered it again as a default (both the same date).

 

Can anybody advise the best way to proceed? I've raised a dispute via Equifax already but I'm not sure how long this will take for them to sort?

 

Any advice would be gratefully received.

 

Thanks

Hi as far as I know BC should have removed their entry as the new account owner has created a new entry for the account though they should keep the original default date.

why have you paid a fleecing DCA

 

all you've done is kept the file showing with a default until the default reaches

it's 6th birthday.

 

paid or not it would have gone anyway

I have posted this a couple of times before, there is a tendancy now to leave the OCs entry alongside the DCAs to show the ''true'' conduct of an account OCs marked settled DCAs showing default with the original default date.

This has no more impact than the original entry, so nt a problem IMO.

Do you know the reason why MBNA leave some (sold) entries on, while removing others ?

Is it just random ?

Random, but it does seem this is being ''trialed'' to show the ''true conduct'' of an account to my mind it makes no odds as long as the default date remains the same.

Sorry, just to clarify, they are now showing the same debt as "settled" with the OC and as a "Default" with the DCA?

 

Out of curiosity, in yuor experience is this the case where the OC and the DCA are part of the same organisation eg Barclays / CDCS ?

I never said "sale."

 

The banks often have DCA divisions. I believe CDCS belomgs to Barclays, but may be wrong. I'm fine with that!

 

The question stands; if a creditor passes their account to a DCA they own, are these being reported separately as settled and as defaults as per post #1?

An in-house DCA will not have their name against a duplicate debt (to the OC) on a CRA file.

 

That's what I needed to know. Thanks. Sorry if my question appeared obtuse.

Did the B/shark reporting stop on the date that Lowells started reporting, or have both been made up to the current date ?

This is the new 'trend'' on reporting the conduct of an account, it has no adverse effect just reflects the conduct of the account.
