Collection

My husband had a collection on his report for $70 from 2009. Two weeks ago it was no longer showing up on credit karma which we thought was unusual because it was not that old and it wasn't paid. We then updated his trans union score and report on my fico and it was no longer listed which made his score increase 50 points.

No we did not dispute it. We were actually planning on paying it because we would like to buy a house in the spring but then it was off the report. Do you have any ideas as to why it would be taken off and then added again if we had done nothing.

Was it the exact same creditor that deleted and then re-reported? It's not uncommon for a CA to sell a debt and have a new one take over.

Maybe they deleted for a short time while reviewing their own records. Who knows.
