Experian: Preliminary research indicates that Experian does not operate in Canada?

Hope that helps.
Canada only has 2 credit offices Transunion and Equifax.

I believe you have to pay to receive them online but if you print out their forms the same rules as the US apply, one free report a year.

I need a little more detail to figure out what you are saying.

So, for example, you had an account with Company A. Company A has a listing on your credit report. You did not pay Company A, so they sold your debt to Company B. Now Company B also has a listing on your report for the debt. If this is the case, it is acceptable as long as Company A shows the debt as a chargeoff. If both companies are showing the debt as currently due, that's a problem.

As for the credit reports saying different things, that does happen. Some companies do not report to all 3 bureaus and some companies do not report regularly, so there may be variations in what you see across the three reports.

If you'd like to PM me with more specific details, I can give you more directed help.

Someone asked me for a version of the validation letter that does not reference finding the debt on your credit report. I wiped my inbox and lost your message. Please message me again and I will get you that version.

This is really great information-thanks so much for sharing. Last weekend, I cleared a 5-shelf bookcase, 2 rubbermaid totes, a laundry basket and an Ugg box (!) full of papers down to two large piles on my desk. I am working on getting my financial records in order and this will certainly help!
