The cable company shows that I cancelled service in April 2010. They continued to bill me for a year, even as I tried to stop them. The company now admits it was a billing error, but also says they can not remove it. Since the money was not collected, my credit has been destroyed.
I have proof of residence change from the Post Office, and also a letter from the landlord saying the date I moved. During my struggle to settle things over the phone, I was told twice that I would be sent a fraud packet. Their system shows those transactions were cancelled because technically it wasn't fraud, it was an error.
I suggest you consult with a FCRA attorney.
If you applied for credit and your credit has been impacted such that you were denied because of this event, then you have a cause of action against the company. Gather all of your papers and go see a consumer attorney. I am open today until 4 p.m.
