Did you receive a discharge in the Ch 13?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
YES IT WAS DISCHARGED, I STATED IN THE FIRST REQUEST THAT IT WAS DISCHARGED AND I GOT A PAPER FROM CHAPTER 13 THAT THE JUDGEMENT WAS VOID.

Hello,

You can have the balance removed from your credit reports. Write to the credit reporting agencies and dispute the debt. Include a copy of your discharge.
