I am trying to get a paid judgement removed from Equifax. It has been removed from TU and Experian.
In the satisfaction paperwork, it says: “Plaintiff further requests that any contempt citation, show cause hearing or outstanding warrant related to any contempt proceedings be vacated herewith”.
Equifax continues to verify the judgement, and has refused to provide a method of verification.
I filed a CFPB complaint, and they continued to verify. The only thing that changed, is that the date now has the year “0001” on my credit report. The judgement was filed and paid in 2014.
I have also filed a complaint with the BBB, no answer to that yet.
I have spoken with a local attorney, and he thinks he can get them to remove it. It will cost between $ 250 and $ 500, depending on his time to compose the letter.
Is there anything else I can try, before I pay this lawyer?
Thanks so much for your help.
