Subject: Unique National Collection is listed in my CR. What to do?
 
Posted on Wed Oct 24, 2007 8:24 pm  

I have a debt on my credit report from Unique National Collection, it is for a library fine. From my understanding, Unique Nat'l Collection does not accept payment, and I must deal with the library directly.

My question is, once I have the debt paid in full with the library, can I have Unique remove the item from my report entirely or does it simply goes into a "Paid/Closed" status? Should I talk to Unique first? Do I need the library to sign an agreement that says they are releasing me from this obligation?

Well first talk to Unique National Collections as they have reported to your account. If they want you to deal directly with the library then do so. Make the payments to the library and keep all the communications in record (in writing). After the debt is satisfied they will close their account and delete the reported item from your CR. If not, you have to ask them to do so.

Always remember that if a report is good then its better to keep it on your file but a negative report can be dropped by paying off the debt.

Just to clarify, a negative report can be dropped by paying it off, but it is always a good idea to get the agreement in writing prior to making your payment. Follow up after payment is received for a paid in full letter.

Dida mornignstar has mentioned a very important point. Please keep it in mind. Always keep record of any transaction.

Do I need to send certified mail or is keeping a copy of the letter I sent to Unique National Collection sufficient?

Can other negative items, such as past due credit card, be drop similarly by paying it off? I paid off the overdue amount, but negative item remains on my CR.

Please send a certified mail with request of return receipt.

If the account has been paid off and has a derogatory entry then it will take seven years to drop off. However you can send disputes to the bureau, call the credit card issuer and request to change the negative remark.

You need to get in touch with the AG General's office. They will have the information if the company is a legitimate one

Do you have any contact details mentioned there? If so then get in touch and find out. If not go ahead and dispute it with the credit bureau.

I "Googled" Unique National Collection and this site popped up. I found it to be very helpful especially since my situation is similar to Dida's. Also, I have to agree with Fred333; Stephanie really came through with providing such great information. I just called UNC and they were helpful in providing me with the info I requested to pay the library. Thank you again!
