Consumer Complaint: I’m trying to get the flowing removed off my credit report. I called Collection Bureau Services and asked them if I had a balance on XX/XX/XXXX and they stated no that all accounts were paid in full. I asked why they were still on my credit report and they stated they are reported with a XXXX balance. I asked why there were not closed and she stated they are reported with a XXXX balance again.
Can you please remove from my experian report the following since there is not a balance and they obviously have not closed it and think that because it has a XXXX balance that it shouldn’t matter.
