Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX ( DOB XXXX/XXXX/XXXX ). Today on XXXX XXXX, XXXX I had called XXXX to follow-up on the process of my disputes. I originally contacted XXXX and wrote them a letter via mail asking them to dispute three accounts on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. They sent me a letter back on XXXX XXXX XXXX asking me to confirm my identity. The following day I sent them back a copy of my social card, a XXXX XXXX XXXX bill and a copy of my id in which they received it on XXXX XXXX XXXX. It is now XXXX XXXX, XXXX and I have not yet heard back from XXXX. As the Federal Credit Reporting law states- ( FCRA , 15 USC section 168 li : failure to investigate these accounts within a period of thirty days will result in a non verification which requires that the above accounts be immediately removed from my credit file. The lady that I spoke with was giving me the run around about an XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX WA XXXX, which has nothing to do with the law. This address was reported to the Credit Bureau because they had to run my credit in order for me to stay here for the last six months. I have stated in my letter and on the envelope after XXXX XXXX I will no longer be residing there because my lease is up and due to this issue I will be homeless so all my mail is being forwarded to the post office. I have yet to receive anything from XXXX through the post office as of today and prior to today. Then I had asked to speak to the supervisor and she had hung up on me. Therefore, I am making a complainant and hoping that you can help me resolve this issue. Attached is my letter of the items that I want to be removed from my credit report immediately.
Thank you, XXXX XXXX
