Is it possible to get a debt that i paid off, off my credit report. I helped somebody open a Cell Phone account and they let it go into collection. I found out when i received a letter from a collection agency. In the letter it gave me and option to pay off the account for a lesser amount. I talked to the agent and told them i do not want this to show up on my credit report. They told me if i paid the full amount it will not show up so i did so.Now a year later i see it on my credit report as a paid off collection. Is there a way to get that removed? Any help will be appreciated.
