Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†

After browsing the forum for the past two weeks, I came across the success letters seen written to AFNI. I have a collection with them through Tmobile and I decided to write a PFD letter. I originally sent a formal letter with a CRRR, but I found sending an email more successful. I got a reply this morning saying that they will delete the collection from my CR! I wanted to know, to those who has had success with deletions from AFNI, how long it has taken for the collection to be cleared? Thanks!

AFNI is a CA out of Illinois. I think it stands for Anderson Financial Network, Inc.
OP, I had them go away twice for me and in both times, it fell off beginning after a week after I first learned of their deletion mention.

My Afni account was deleted from all 2 CRB's within 3 days following their email that they would delete. EQ deleted same day, TU was deleted within 24hrs, EX deleted within 48hrs. I kept a diary.

Great to hear and congrats. I requested a delete as well and it came off TU and EQ in a few days but still shows on EX (40 days later). I disputed and they VERIFIED! I sent a copy directly to EX of the delete letter. Hoping they delete. AFNI will work with you, usually only through mail or better yet email.
