Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to send a demand letter pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act to the credit bureaus and the bank as well and you need to state you are attaching proof that the dates they are reporting on your credit report are incorrect. Tell them that pursuant to the FCRA you are demanding the dates be corrected and if they refuse to do so within 30 days you will have no choice but to sue them for the damages the inaccurate reporting is causing you and your attorney's fees as provided for under the FCRA and you will also file a complaint with the federal trade commission (http://www.ftc.gov) for their violation of the FCRA.
