My solicitor tried to get it removed and put a notice of correction on my file, however, Experian and the other big 2 refused until the Police/HMRC had finished their investigations.PDC wrote: ↑Thu May 17, 2018 2:15 pmSounds a real nightmare! Though I would class that as a special case as the marker would have been put on due to the police arrest rather than having anything to do with you trading under normal circumstances.
Glad to hear it all got cleared up for you. You can put your own notice of correction on your file if there is an issue with it prior to the issue being resolved/removed. May have been something you should have done at the time as that has to be taken account of when applying for credit.
It ended up being a pin ball bouncing back between Police, HMRC, Experian, My Solicitor for over 2 years. I even went to court to get my file fixed but my case was dismissed due to the nature of the alleged offences.
They all dragged their feet over it. And yes, I went for compensation too after everything was sorted out but lost that too.
Yes, a real NIGHTMARE.
