Judgement on my credit report after filing bankruptcy
Date: Mon, 07/13/2009 16:35
How do I clear up a judgement that is shwing on our credit report? The judgement was included in our bankruptcy and was paid through that process.
Also, a creditor chose to write off the balance we owed instead of filing a claim during the bankruptcy. They are still reporting the write off as a bad debt on a monthly basis and it's been more than 2 years. Can they keep doing this? If so, for how long? They should have filed the papers with the court and they would have been paid too.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
