BUT it's the 4yr old one. I have one from May 08' that I really wanted to get deleted too and that's the one I specified more. These are both paid medical accts.
I got a letter in the mail today saying they will delete the older one.
True Credit reports all 3 bureaus reporting both, but here, only EQ shows both. All 3 have the newer one showing.
I know beggars can't be chosers and I'm very greatful for their help. Should I pursue with getting the newer one off? I'm wondering if I should call her. She said "If you have any questions feel free to call me." Somehow, I'm not feeling very "free".
What would you do?

I read that it doesn't work if it was turned over to collections and you paid the CA.
There are a few of my accounts that have been paid but still report my lates. They can report closed accounts for 7.5 years paid or not. Just like credit cards do. I don't know. I don't even understand the HPAA process and I've read it many times. Opt out of my credit cards? What does that even mean? Grrr.
Nevermind. I suppose I'll just get the guts to call her someday and ask her to remove the new one.

Opting out means that ccc's cannot share information such as your name, address, ph# etc. They already cannot share SSN & the like.
You can also opt out w the CRA's where they cannot share your info either. Keeps new CA's from getting your address, ph# etc. IF you happen to have any skeletons out there you'd rather keep in the closet!
