How to remove PAID collection debt?

Submitted by clemato on Thu, 02/19/2009 - 19:45

I recently pulled my credit report to do a once over before buying another house, luckily I did for there was a notation that I was 180 days late on a payment and it went to collections. I had to make several phone calls to figure out what was going on and found out the debt was paid (how I am not exactly sure) and their is nothing they could do.

Any advice on how to get this off my report? I have read writing to credit bureaus, any other thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

The Best option in my opinion is to write the credit bureaus, and also send the proof of the payments.
I hope this helps

You can file a dispute with each of the credit reporting agencies, if the information is incorrect they will remove it. I just had this done through transunion, I called them and disputed the negative report over the phone, a paid bill reported incorrectly. With in ten days, very quickly, I got a letter stating that they investigated and remove the item. They also stated that if anyone inquire and I was denied credit with in the last two years that they would at my request send a correction to them.

I requested that they send a report to each of the other two, equifax and experian, I got a letter from them a second time, they did just as they promised, they sent letters out and had my two other reports updated.

I know that it takes some effort on the creditors part, but they can also go in and manually remove it. They may say that they can't but they can, have had this done also.

When you file a dispute with one reporting agency do they automatically correct the error with the other ones? I had always thought that you had to file disputes for the three credit reporting agencies separately.
I can not see why the billing dept. can not just go fix there error instead of waiting for the consumer to dispute but I know they do this sometimes. This is why you should always use your three free pulls to ensure you have a correct report.

I have had a notation removed from a credit card issue. When the credit card company wrote back they said it was a mistake and where going to mail a letter to the big 3 and have the account removed, within 2-weeks it was done. So I guess depending on which side you are dealing with they will usually take care of all of it for you, but better to check than not.

If the three reporting agencies communicate.. that is a good question.

Well, MOHAMMED, you MAY want to try and call the Credit Card companies and find out if the accounts were PIF (Paid In Full) BEFORE the debts went to collections. If the accounts WERE PIF before that time, it's possible that the CC's can remove them. If that;s NOT the case, then they can stay on your Credit ( even though PIF..) for 7 years.

It's important for everyone to understand that the payment of a collection or charged off account does NOT mean they are in ANY WAY obligated to delete the item. Unless of course you have that in writing from the creditor IN ADVANCE...

In fact, the bureaus are STRONGLY URGED not to delete items, simply because they have been paid, citing that that would diminish the integrity of the reporting system itself.

The key to successful removal of ANY item, is the quality of the disputes themselves...

I paid my debt in full and it is still on my credit history. I was told by Trans-Union that it takes up to seven years to fall of my history. Even though it is paid in full. They are giving my a load of crap and using the Fair credit protection to cover their butts. I mean come on I paid it all off and even disputed it and they still say that they won't remove it. Any ideas?

It is tough to get something off your report once it is there and validated. It is very possible that it will stay there for the seven years.

embarassing thoughts, Like constantly keen on your alopecia, Can be a symptom of an anxiety issue or such like. on behalf of me, The most helpful thing to quell those kinds of thoughts is to either thing of the for the worst situation scenario and how is deal with it, subjects that hasn't helped, fair to god, medications do.

I take an SSRI for an panic attacks and the best way to describe how it works is that it just generally makes me care less. It's not that i'm careless or don't care at all, It's just that I don't ruminate about things that I can't change or control likewise.

Thank might be something for you to reflect upon.

People turn down others for a lot less I think there are compatible people for people in thousands: Just takes the right amount of need and right amount of compatibility.

even so I did date someone sexy russian women with aggressive stomach issues and that played no part in our breakup. Inconvenient during the relationship as we had to cut a couple outings short. i mean, Once we left a bar with 2 friends of mine and I was a little pissed but she promptly threw up in the gutter once we were on our way home then I traded to care mode, No rawness. Held back the head of hair, Rubbed the back a true advanced.

now you ask: Would someone with IBS want to be with someone that gets pissy when they the one browsing something?

We broke up seem lifeless physical, love-making incompatibility? if a thing.

All I know is that I wouldn want to date someone that had an inherent disdain for something my body did. could they be an asshole? none, perhaps just a person. constant issues exist, Some irk better than others. I could call them an asshole but I think if we went deep enough we all assholes if given any reason to be.

When i was on it, I recall that I would mainly check images and art pages to get inspiration for my own work but I also realized that it was a drain on my emotions too since I couldn help but check the "man or women life" Side of it too like creeping on exes and other time wasting sporting activities. I didn like the thing it was doing to me and how it caused my more petty side to emerge.

as, What I am trying to say is that I am biased too with my own negative happenings. I view IG/FB as wastes of time overall even if I can acknowledge they can be used productively by people who have more self control.
