The Bureaus INC ??????

Okay I posted a previous post about ORCHARD BANK, but now I have another situation. I just viewed my credit report and this is what it says about my account with Orchard Bank (HSBC):

Transferred, closed/Account charged off. $344 written off.
Date Opened: 12/2006
Charge of as of 5/2008
Creditors Statement: Purchased by another lender.

Now on my report it also shows:

The bureaus inc (which I guess is the lender that purchased this debt from HSBC)

Status: Collection acct. $893 past due as of 10/2008
Original Creditor: Bureaus Investment Grp NO 15
Date opened: 6/2008

** Now my question is how is this possible??? The original creditor should be HSBC, right??? And it HSBC wrote off $344 than that is what I should be responsible for to make this debt go away, right??? Another thing how can it say that the date opened was 6/2008 when the account was opened in 12/2006????

What should I do???

any of you geniuses ever stop to think that what you know might be unknown by others and even reasonably prudent people can't determine what you're referring to?

HAVING BEEN EMPLOYED BY THEM FOR A NUMBER OF TEARS, i CAN TELL YOU WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT TBI IS LICENSED/REGISTERED IN EACH AND EVERY LOCALITY REQUIRED BY LAW TO DO SO, AND RENEWS REGULARLY.

YOU NEED TO CHECK WITH THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF FINANCIAL INSTUTITIONS

Any suggestions?


Yes. They ended up sucking up the debt. I would have paid what I owed them but they wanted to break laws instead of collect money. Always have them prove the debt. They usually can't. Sometimes they place the debt with another company to collect. Got them 2.

I just checked my credit report and found a potentially negative item listing for The Bureaus Inc. in 2005. When I disputed their debt with Experian, they posted another for August 2009. When I tried to call them to inquire about this debt I am either left on hold for 20 minutes or transferred to an answering service. I am not showing any charge-offs that have not already been accounted for and paid so I do not know what the hell these people want or why they are on my report.

I had a strange feeling about this place from the start. I now know that between 6/12 & 6/29 they have put on my CR themselves as the original creditor, changed the account number, added crap fees, and probably illegally re-aged my charged-off HSBC account. All done during my validation period. I am not pissing with these morons. I see an attorney in my future. Keep your eye closely on CR with these people.

I rfecieved a phone call today, 6/25/2009, from someone named " Bill Smith ( I think that was his last name )", and he told me that my account that had been with HSBC was now their account, that they had purchased it from HSBC. He told me my account was $3800.00 past due and that I hadn't paid on it since12/8008. I told this guy that I had suffered three heart attacks in january and bee in the hospital for a long time, and had returned to work in the last 60 days. This guy wanted me to write him a check for the amount owed. I said I can't do that. He asked me how long it would take to pay off the account? I told him about 3-4 years. He said oh no. We can't do that. Heres how it will read on your account, "uncooperitive, and refused to pay. Hows that?" I told him it was a bear faced lie. He had already hung up.
