SunTrust Banks, Inc. Credit Reporting Complaint

Incorrect information on credit report account status

Incorrect information on credit report Account status Georgia

I filed a previous complaint with CFPB about my Suntrust Equity Line being refinanced due to hardship. They did complete the hardship refinance to my satisfaction due to the pressure from your organization. Thank you. However, they reported to the credit reporting agencies I had been late 30 days on my loan which is the not the case. I had called Suntrust several times to see why the refinance was taking so long and was told " it was a sensitive subject ''. I was instructed " not to pay one the old loan '' until the new terms were worked out or I would be paying on the old loan and it would not be reflected in the new loan. I followed the advice of Suntrust and did as I was told. As soon as the new refinance terms took place, I made a payment and have not missed a payment. I feel that Suntrust reporting a late payment to the reporting agencies is unfair and false. Suntrust told me not to pay on the old loan which I followed. Reporting a late payment is disingenuous when they took " a lengthy time to rework the loan because it was a sensitive subject. '' I am now trying to refinance the loan to get away from Suntrust and their reporting is hurting my credit score in getting a new credit line. I want the " late status taken off my credit report as this account has always been in good standing for over 10 years until the payment ballooned and was unreasonable for me to handle. I worked it through Suntrust to get fair treatment. Reporting a late payment that was their fault in the length of time in handling my refinance was not my fault. I would like this changed on my credit reports. Thank you.
