Question: I did fille a dispute and Transunion refused to take the information off of my report. Reference to the bankruptcy will remain under the Sallie Mae remarks until 2013, which means that for 14 years there will be a reference to bankruptcy on my report. I called Transunion and filed another dispute. I really don't think that Transunion is going to do anything further. I thought about filing a motion to reopen the bankruptcy because Sallie Mae and Transunion are violating the discharge. Can I do that? I will also file a complaint with the federal trade commission. I am just sick over this. Should I call Sallie Mae?? Response: Yes, you can do that. Under 11 U.S.C. Section 350(b), you can reopen your bankruptcy case to request for any relief. You can also file complaint with FTC. However, before you file the Complaint or lawsuit against Sallie Mae, you need to contact its bankruptcy department to try to resolve the issue. You can contact the department at 1-800-428-9250 ext 81225.
