After looking over my credit report, I found some disturbing inaccuracies.  I had 2 HSBC credit cards that were charged off in 2007. Portfolio Recovery Assoc. were quick to buy up these debts and send ridiculous settlement offers and punctuate those offers with numerous daily phone calls that still continue. 

I noticed that P.R.A. has been reporting payments of $25 every month since July of 2010 to Experian and Equifax and I have never sent them a dime. Also the balance, instead of decreasing by $25 each month actually rises by $2.  There is no data reported for the date the payment was received, scheduled payment amount, date of last activity, or activity designator, only the "actual payment amount" and "recent payment" fields report the magical $25. I understand why they are fraudulently reporting payments to constantly extend the statute of limitations which I believe has already expired, but isn't this a direct violation of the FCRA?!

I'm assuming my next step is to file a dispute with the CSC but does anyone have any other ideas?
