ID Theft Victim Interview: An extreme case of ID Theft and how LifeLock failed to help

ID Theft Victim Interview: An extreme case of ID Theft and how LifeLock failed to help

June 22, 2018

In this episode we interview a long term client of ours who has undergone one of the most extreme cases of ID Theft that we have seen in our professional carreers. Our client, "Mr. T" gives us his side of the story and we discuss how he has had to deal with IRS problems, DMV problems, and of course Credit reporting problems. It is kind of a pain to prove that it was not you who had a DUI in another state in order to get your license in your home state....and Mr. T tells us all about it. 

Even after freezing his credit, the problem was not solved. Join us and take a listen and realize just how bad it can be to have your identity stolen. 

P.S 

Richard is back from Japan, but is terribly Jet Lagged, so NEXT week we will be back with a regular episode!

Anselmo Vs. Shady Debt Collector - Special Episode

Anselmo Vs. Shady Debt Collector - Special Episode

June 15, 2018

We have been quite busy here at the office this month, and with Richard being in Japan vacationing- we are up to our eyeballs in work!

But no fear, Richard will be back next week and we will be back on track to deliver weekly Extra Credit Show Episodes.

I thought I'd share with you guys a little verbal back and forth against a Debt Collector that was threatning one of our clients with a lawsuit, which seemed a bit shady since the debt appeared to be past the statute of limiations. Take a listen to Anselmo take on a debt collector who really seemed like he broke almost every rule in the rulebook. You will learn how to spot a likely fake debt collector, along with the right questions to ask and what to look out for to ensure you are speaking with a legitimate company and not some phony debt collector wanting to intimidate you into paying something.

Thanks for hanging out with us every week!

Charge-Offs: What is a Charge-OFF and how bad is it?

May 25, 2018

Charge Offs are a funny little word that is understood in many different ways. Some consumers believe once it's charged off you no longer have to pay for the debt. Some believe that a charge-off is a tax benefit for the creditor. So what exactly is a charge off and how bad is it for your credit score?

In this episode we breakdown Charge-Offs, and discuss how they happen, and what you can do about it.

Mixed Credit: When somebody else’s credit history shows up on your credit report

Mixed Credit: When somebody else’s credit history shows up on your credit report

May 11, 2018

 

A mixed file is when credit information for two or more people is erroneously put into a given consumer’s report. Given that consumers have unique Social Security numbers, you would think mixed files would rarely, if ever, happen, but they do. Common reasons for mixed files include people, particularly family members, with similar names and/or addresses. Sometimes, people with similar names and Social Security numbers will become victims of mixed files. When this happens, information will be wrongly attributed to a given consumer.
