Re: Diversified Consultants, Sprint, Deleting a Paid collections account

I was told the same as the OP. It is possible to pay and OC and have it retracted from a CA and therefore removed from credit reports. I've done it with other accounts.

Re: Diversified Consultants, Sprint, Deleting a Paid collections account

I understand that you were told that, however the rep was wrong.

 

Then that would seem to be on Sprint, not me. Why are the reps telling people entries will be deleted when they won't be? To get payments out of them?

 

I contacted a US based corporate employee, will see what sort of results that yields. I still plan to dispute once I receive the confirmation letter from Sprint, if this route doesn't work.

Re: Diversified Consultants, Sprint, Deleting a Paid collections account

The debt was always under the ownership of the creditor, and not the debt collector.

Thus, there is no "recall of the debt."

 

What is at issue is the termination of assigned collection authority, and whether it was done before or after they creditor accepted payment of the debt.

 

A creditor cannot retroactively terminate assigned collection authority after accepting payment of the debt.

And going off of what the rep told me, the collection authority should have been terminated from DCI before I paid. If the rep was wrong in saying that, then that is Sprint's fault for not training their front line CSR's on the proper etiquette or verbiage. 

 

If speaking to this corporate employee fails, I'll try disputing it with the CRAs (because despite what you seem to be trying to tell me, paying an OC and then disputing with the CRAs has yielded results for others here in this very subforum). If neither of those works, I will open a dispute with the BBB/CFPB because a Sprint employee told me it would be removed and it wasn't, and chalk it up to a learning experience.
