Re: WILL IT HURT MY SCORE

Re: WILL IT HURT MY SCORE

You have good cards. I would just focus on making payments on-time for right now and asking for CLI's when the economy starts getting better. Payment history is a big part of your credit report and now is the perfect time to work on it.

 

Also, since you paid for the collections, did you try arranging a PFD (Pay For Delete)?

It's probably too late because they would've done anything to get their money from you.

Re: WILL IT HURT MY SCORE

you can send a goodwill letter to the collection agencies requesting they remove the derogatory items from your CR. Many will not, but its worth a try!!

Make sure that you state (in the letter) that

you voluntarily called them and offered to pay in full.

Re: WILL IT HURT MY SCORE
