Yes, Wendy. Entergy did turn over their $800 bill that they say I owed (I
averaged my billing) to a company who did the "callings and collections". It
turned up on my credit report. I paid mine to get it removed (which took
about 3-6 months from the credit bureau).

Some people never paid their former bills and I suppose never checked their
credit history, so they may not know that Entergy did this. (remember
Entergy seeking/threatened bankruptcy last year in their woes that they lost
millions and thus needed the money, so it went off to a collections agency).
So many were hurt by paying past billings like this when what they needed
were disaster aid, housing, etc. (They still do, but some refuse that a
grave situation for so many still exists - it's called denial).


Hi Everyone,

Just found out something really weird and not sure if its legal. So if
anyone knows let me know. My boyfriend was checking out his credit report
and found that Entergy had put his account in collections (pre- katrina,
that part is fine) but then on the account it has charged off as a result of
their bankruptcy. Now here's the part I think is illegal, they then added
the amount charged off to his current bill. He just got his FEMA trailer in
the last 3 months, so that's why he hasn't had a bill since the storm. Does
anybody know anything about this and did anyone else have this on their
credit reports?
