Collection removed

Long story short. I had a Bellsouth bill turned over to a CA which reported to CRA's before I could pay them. When I saw it was a collection I paid right away and asked the rep to delete from the report but he wouldn't. I sent a email to the CEO of the CA basically begging they remove from my reports. Today they did. I suppose they're not all bad? Anyway, I thanked them profusely and I'm so happy I just wanted to tell someone. So there you have it.

Re: Collection removed

To say I was surprised would be a HUGE understatement. I started repair last fall (425ish) and there were, (still are) times you get so fed up that you just want to quit and give up. That's where I was with this one so I figured hey it can't hurt. Big smiles here! (over 600 now on TU and EQ)

Re: Collection removed

Tell me who was in charge of the collection and who you sent the GW letter to.  I just PIF'd mine 6 year old Bellsouth Bill and saw that it was paid off but not removed. I know it will drop off next year, but it would be nice to remove it now.

I sent you a PM. I'm kinda gun shy about outing them just yet.
