Use this sample Second Follow Up Letter to get your credit bureau to reply to your written request that they fix credit reporting errors. If they fail to respond to your initial follow up letter, use our Second Follow Up Letter to further prod them into making the correction to your credit report.
This follow up letter lets the creditor know that the situation is becoming a legal matter. You may use this letter for any of your errors. However, the success of correcting errors of late payments WITHOUT records of proper payments will be harder to correct. The burden falls on the payer to provide proof those errors need correcting. Document every thing done during this process.

RE: Dispute Letter of [Date you sent in first request]
Dear: [Credit Bureau],
This letter is formal notice that you have failed to respond in a timely manner to my dispute letter of [DATE}, deposited by registered mail with the Post Office on that date.
As you are well aware, Federal Law requires you to respond within 30 days, yet you have failed to respond. Failure to comply with these federal regulations by credit reporting agencies are investigated by the Federal Trade Commission (see 15 USC 41, et seq.). I am maintaining a careful record of my communications with you on this matter, for the purpose of filing a complaint with the FTC should you continue in your non-compliance. I further remind you that, as in Wenger v. Trans Union Corp., No. 95-6445 (C.D.Cal. Nov. 14, 1995), you may be liable for your willful non-compliance.
Be aware that I am making a final goodwill attempt to have you clear up this matter. You have 15 days to cure.
For your benefit, and as a gesture of my goodwill, I will restate my dispute. The following information needs to be verified and deleted from the report as soon as possible:
[Creditor Agency, Account Number]
The listed item is completely inaccurate and incomplete, and is a very serious error in reporting. Please delete this misleading information, and supply a corrected credit profile to all creditors who have received a copy within the last 6 months, or the last 2 years for employment purposes.
Additionally, please provide the name, address, and telephone number of each credit grantor or other subscriber.
Under federal law, you had 30 days to complete your re-investigation, yet you have failed to respond. Do not delay further.
Be advised that the description of the procedure used to determine the accuracy and completeness of the information is hereby requested as well, to be provided within 15 days of the completion of your re-investigation.
[Your name typed]
