I have a negative item on my Experian report that looks to have been re-aged by a year or so. Seven years from date of first delinguency would have been four months ago, so it should be gone, right? I've never made a payment on it, ever. Heck, I didn't even know it was on there until last month. I disputed it with them in December, and it came back as 'verified and updated'. I just disputed it again, for all the good that's likely to do.
At this point, I've just about had it. I've spent most of the afternoon trying to contact Experian and talk to an actual person, to no avail. I've tried every likely-looking number on their website. All that's gotten me is lost in an endless tangle of voice-prompt menus. Does anybody have a phone number for them that will allow me to speak to an actual, live human? I want to know how they 'verified' this turkey, and why it's scheduled to remain on my report until 09/2008, which would be eight years. Can anybody help me here?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
