Follow up or move on? UPDATED - QUESTION IN COMMENT

[ Edited ]

I GW'd a local CA on 3 paid accounts they have for me.  I was very specific in listing the accounts in the GW, it was very clear I was asking for all to be deleted.

 

2 have been deleted, not the 3rd.

 

I received a letter from CA saying:

This letter is to confirm ywe investigated your credit-reporting dispute on the above account and have requested it be deleted from your credit report.

 

 

Okay #1 - I didn't dispute but whatever.   Secondly, the "above account" they are talking about shows 2 account numbers, not 3.

 

Should I follow up asking about the 3rd or be greatful they did 2 and be quiet?

If I had that I would wait a couple of months before sending a new GW. I probably wouldn't cite the first two.

+1  Let those be removed and make a copy of your CR with those removed.  Then after a bit, kindly ask them to delete the 3rd.  Good Luck.

Thanks, I think I will wait a bit like suggested.  Don't want to push them too hard haha.  And for all I know they are deleting the 3rd but it hasn't updated yet?  This CA has told me they send files to the CRAs twice a month.  So waiting is good I believe.

When did you pay them?  I've heard it can take 60days sometimes to post to the CRAs.  Who is the CA?

Re: Follow up or be thankful and move on? (CA partial deletion)

I sent another GW fax yesterday to get the remaining acct off my reports. 

 

They just called and left a message to call them.  This didn't happen last time.  Last time I just got a letter and it was off my record.

 

Even though I don't OWE them money I'm still nervous to call LOL.

 

 

MY QUESTION is this.....when I call them back, if they say "no we cannot delete" do I thank him and hang up.  Or do I say "well you deleted the first 2 I asked you to" and risk them reinserting the first 2 CA tradelines?

 

HELP!
