I received a stall letter from the credit bureaus! What do I do?

Dispute Beast - The Most Advanced Credit Repair Software Ever Created

Short answer:

They are trying to discourage your, save the letter they sent, and send another attack in 40 days

Long answer:

Dealing with those automated “we didn’t get your letter” responses from credit reporting agencies is pretty much par for the course when you’re disputing stuff on your credit report. Yeah, it’s annoying, but it’s their go-to move—stall letters from the big guys like Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, and even from the smaller players and data furnishers. They’re basically trying to buy time or hope you’ll just drop it.

But here’s the kicker: they’re legally required to get back to you within 30 business days through snail mail. If they don’t, they’re stepping on your rights. That’s why it’s super important to keep a copy of every single thing you send them and every response you get back, especially those stall letters.

Why, you ask? Well, if they keep playing games and not fixing your credit report, you can use those letters as evidence. If it comes down to it, you can bring them to court or take your case up with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). That’s like telling the teacher on them in the grown-up world of credit reports.

We’re not just shooting in the dark here; we’re covering all our bases—sending disputes to everyone: Equifax, Experian, TransUnion, the data furnishers, and even those secondary bureaus. We know they’re probably going to try and stall, but we’re one step ahead.

So, remember, every time they send you one of those stall letters, save it. Think of it as collecting ammo for if you need to escalate things. Stick with the plan, keep disputing, and don’t let those letters deter you. They’re just part of the game, and we’re playing to win.
