Do I send a PFD or GW now?

Hi there,

 

I have recently paid in full 4 settlements:

 

Chase (for a WAMU cc, this account is closed)

AlliedInterstate for Chase (this was an old Chase cc)

Rubin & Rothman for Master Card (an old Wells Fargo cc)

Kirschenbaum & Phillips for Seamans (will be paid off in Dec)

 

My question is: Is it too late to send a PFD? Should I send a GW rather? Basically what would you advise my next step to be since they are still bringing down my credit scores. I didn't learn what these letters were until recently, and I have 3 more small accounts that I haven't touched yet. Those 3 I will definitely be sending a PFD.

 

Thanks for all the help, and all of the other posts that have been extremely informative.

Also, the last two settlements stated are judgements. Is there a way I could get those off my CR? One is paid in full and the other will be in December of this year.

 

Thanks

If you have paid in full, there is no offer to pay remaining.  You must now GW.

Thanks I figured that I should attempt the GW. As for the last 2, I researched and found out that these judgements have to be vacated so I will be working on that. :smileyhappy:
