pls dont ignore...major confusion

I called a CA (Certegy) today for a debt/baddy that is paid - and they refuse to remove it from my CR - i begged and pleaded......what can I do?  it is a major ding....it shows as a paid collection. 
 
second.  I called equifax about a collection from Cingular and they said it is not on my report.  but i have a recent(last week) copy of my CR which shows CIngular....CR was pulled from MyFico.  should i still pursue the matter?? 
 
Lastly, i disputed with EQ a providian collection because i feel that the amounts owed are wrong and DOLA is wrong - although i disputed with EQ should I send DV to providian anyway????
 
I hope you guys help - i feel maybe am not asking the right question or I am not expressing myself properly because i seem not be getting alot of responses to my questions.....i would truly be grateful for the help:-)
 
please please....i promise to keep quiet for a while after that......thanks aloooooootttttttt!

Re: pls dont ignore...major confusion

1. Try a GW letter. If that doesn't work, try another.And another. And another. Get the picture. Make each one a little better than the last.
 
2. Perhaps the Cingular was dumped after you pulled that report. Do you have TC? I do - so I can look at my reports everyday to monitor my progress. I wouldn't take anyone's word on what's on your report - get in in print.
 
3.Let the dispute you filed have a chance to work. If it doesn't get you the results you are looking for, DV.
 
Good luck!

 Never call a CA! they lie.  What is this showing on your CR?  paid unpaid?? what  OOPS i see it now.  DO as TEX says  start with GW to them.
 
I have providian also & they ummmm can't use that word here....stink. Does it state Providian collections or another name like a CA?  Ask the CRA  what they have as your DOFD
 
Did you get an updated report from CRA on your dispute?
 
A DV goes to a CA not a CCC.  Although I did send 1 before I knew the difference.
 
Like TEX said...cing. might have dropped since last week OR  you mentioned pull...did you mean an ing was pulled?

Re: pls dont ignore...major confusion

Hey, I'm pretty certain that everyone here has been where you are emotionally. It IS frustrating trying to make things happen when all you can do is sit at a computer and type letters. But, believe me- Things will improve. It will probably take twice as long and three times the effort you want it to, but if you just keep plugging, things will happen!
