Dear Credit Bureau,
On (Date first letter was sent), I sent you a letter requesting several highly derogatory items which do not pertain to me, be investigated on my credit report. Please see the enclosed copy.
Additionally, on (Date second letter was sent), I sent you a letter requesting that you expedite this investigation. Please see the enclosed copy. Since then, more that a reasonable amount of time has passed.
To date, I have not received a response to either letter! Please be advised that unless my credit investigation is completed by (Date 3 weeks from date of this letter), I will file a formal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. I hope this will not be necessary.
