Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

For the past 6 months I have been dealing with a debt collection agency. First National Collection Bureau. They placed a debt on my credit report. The debt did not belong to me. My name was used fraudenlty.

I disputed the debt, and came back verified. I sent 2 certified letters, for validation. They never responded. Ive sent experian documentations, showing proof that the debt did not belong to me. Experian send me a letter, that they would no longer accept any more disputes regarding this debt.

What left is there to do to get this removed, from my credit files?
