Dispute or let sleeping dogs lie?
« on: March 03, 2012 11:20:12 PM »
I got a credit report in the mail today. 

There was a rather glaring error.  A property was foreclosed on, but it was listed as if it were a short sale.  Not only that, but the date of the last payment was off by a few months, winding up about a year before the foreclosure.

Since this is inaccurate, should I dispute it, trying to get it off the CR?  Or is that just tempting fate, since they could investigate, clean up the information, and put on a TL that would be somewhat worse?  (Some other credit reports show the correct info, BTW).

Full foreclosure or foreclosure/short sale.

Neither is particularly helpful on a credit report.
