Can You Dispute Vance and Huffman Showing up on Your Credit Report?

If you feel that have no purpose for being on your credit report, you can dispute the charges. However, there isn't an easy way to do it. For the best overall results for you, you should look closely at your credit report to see if there are any errors.

Some common errors that may appear on your credit report are:

Identity Errors

This may include the wrong phone number, name, address, etc. However, it may also include incorrect accounts that you never created, as in the case of identity theft.

Balance Issues

Let's say you owe a bill to your internet provider and the amount is $300.00, but you look on your credit report, and it is reported as $301.00. This may seem like a small discrepancy, but as an error, it can be disputed.

Account Status Errors

These errors are something you should look for because they are not always easy to spot. They include:

  • Closed Accounts Show as Open
  • You Are being Listed as Primary Owner of an Account You Are Only Authorized to Use (this happens most often with credit cards)
  • Accounts Showing as Delinquent When You Are Up-to-Date on Payments
  • Incorrect Dates of Your Last Payment or the Date You Opened the Account
  • Duplicate Entries for the Same Debt

If you notice any of these things, you will be more able to dispute charges that appear on your report through Vance and Huffman or any other debt collector.

How to Successfully Dispute Your Credit Report on Your Own

To settle a dispute on your own takes effort. You also have to decide how you want to handle it. Some options include:

Dispute Letters

The first step in disputing a credit report issue will begin with you writing a detailed dispute letter. You should send it to the main credit reporting company and the company that has reported your debt.

TransUnion(800) 916-8800 TransUnion LLC Consumer Dispute Center, P.O. Box 2000, Chester, PA 19016
  1. Your Account Number or Other Identifying Information About the Account
  2. The Source of Your Dispute (The Company You Feel Is an Error)
  3. The Date of the Discrepancy
  4. Details Regarding the Error and Why You Feel It Is Incorrect
  5. Wrong Name
  • Wrong Account
  • Already Paid Debt
  • Identity Theft
  • ETC

Before you mail your dispute letter, you should include a copy of your credit report with the error highlighted. The more detail you can include about your dispute, the more likely it will be that you will find success.

The Saturation Method

If this does not provide you with the expected results, of improving your credit score, you can also use the "Saturation Method." This method includes sending out a goodwill letter to anyone associated with the debt you owe asking that they remove the debt from your credit report. For the Saturation Method to be effective, you must send out bulk letters frequently, at least monthly, on varying days of the week to ensure you reach the most people with your letters.

Suing the Company That Wrongfully Messed up Your Credit

According to the Fair Consumer Reporting Act, you have the right to sue debt collectors for a variety of reasons. If they:

  • Harass You
  • Lie to You
  • Tell Others About Your Debt
  • Call You at Work After Being Asked Not To
  • Call You After You Have Said You Have Legal Representation
  • If They Refuse to Show Proof of Your Debt
  • And More

Debt collectors have no right to be nasty toward you regarding a debt, whether it is real or inaccurate. If they try to, you can sue them in a small claims court, which can also be done through DoNotPay. Dealing with debt and errors is not a simple process. Often, people need help to get things cleared up so that inquiries and other issues do not lower your credit report numbers.
