Portfolio Recovery Associates / falsifying information

1 Norfolk, VA, United States Review updated:

I'm no expert on credit collections activities but I'm certain that chaning information in order to ### the age of an account in order to continue to collect is against the law. They are trying to harass collections on an account from 1999. They are reporting it as a "medical" account, which I believe allows them to collect longer and they have changed the opening age of the account to 2004. They refuse to validate the account with any type of written information. Yet the account is always verified for the credit bureaus. HOW is that possible?

    I also had a simular problem with this company. They changed the date of the account to last year (originally the date was 2005). Anyways, I would think that this is illegal. But these people are obviously dirty. The day after I spoke with him, trying to make arrangements to pay this debt, Very nicely by the way, this person
    contacted transunion and added $7.00 to the account to create new activity. Does anyone know if I can dispute this?
