Experian Suspicious Dispute Letters
Has Experian Refused to Investigate your Dispute?
Recently, Experian has refused to investigate many consumer disputes by responding with a letter stating in part “We received a suspicious request…..” In many instances, this is illegal and violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The letter looks like this:
Under the law, Experian is obligated to investigate items disputed by a consumer. Under very limited circumstances, it may legally refuse to investigate if the dispute is frivolous. The problem is that Experian is declining to investigate many valid dispute letters.
Here is a short video that explains your rights if you get a “Suspicious Dispute Letter” from Experian.
We have successfully sued Experian and made them investigate these disputes and pay damages to our clients.
Why is Experian Bouncing these Disputes?
Experian is tired of receiving bogus and silly disputes from credit repair companies. Many of these companies issue good dispute letters that posit valid challenges to inaccurate trade lines. Other credit repair companies…well…not so much. Dispute letters that contain the following language are most likely to get bounced:
- I dispute everything negative on my credit report…please investigate;
- I demand you verify each and every trade line;
- Provide with me copies of documents that I signed to show that this account is mine;
- I don’t remember filing for bankruptcy; can you please investigate this item;
The list goes on and on.
What should you do if your dispute letter has been deemed a “suspicious Request?”
