Re: Can I get a paid collection removed from my credit report?

thank you! happy holidays to you as well :smileyhappy:

 

it's through national credit systems. I couldn't find an email but I they have a form you can fill out to contact them on their website so I did that. I'll send the letter to the address I have on my CR also.

 

I don't really want to pay for my credit report every two week and this collection isn't showing up on any of the free sites I use to monitor my reports! Any other ways to know if it gets deleted or is this my only option?

Discover It $1k | Chase Freedom $1.2k | Barclay Apple $1.7k | Target $1k |TJX Rewards $1k | Walmart $900 | Macy's $800 | American Eagle $750 | VS $750 | LOFT $500 | Express $350 | Cap1 Sec. $200 |

AU: Amex BCP $5k | Barclaycard Arrival $3k | Amazon Visa $2k | Chase Freedom $2k | Discover It $1.5k

Re: Can I get a paid collection removed from my credit report?

There might be a thread around here somewhere...where to find free credit reports..

 

Maybe just send the GW letters and check once a month.
