A friend just got pre-approved for a home loan. The bank then reversed itself saying that they looked more closely and her credit wasn’t as good. So she dug deeper and found the following:
- DATC, a tech school which she never attended, claimed that she owes them money and is delinquent in paying
- Several places listed on the credit report have long since been paid but never updated the information
She can try to contact all of these companies and request statements certifying that nothing is owed to them…but she has only a week in which to get this info to her bank and the process may take longer.
Advice on how to handle this would be much appreciated. Introductions to people who might be able to assist her would be equally welcome.
