You know, it occurred to me that since the mortgage companies engaged in fraudulent foreclosures and loans, why do I have this foreclosure still staining my credit report?

I was thinking of disputing the item with each of the credit reporting agencies. I think to ask them to prove it is an accurate entry. Perhaps there is a chance the banks involved will be slow to reply? And if they do, I can send several of the court documents and settlement paper showing it was fraudulent. I just want it removed, much as you would want the identity thief's purchases removed from your record.

I cannot believe this has not already been tried. And, if so, was a lawsuit filed that got squashed?
