How long for deleted CA account to be removed from CRAs?

I DVed Harvard Collection Services a while back and they failed to validate. I filed complaints with the FTC, AGs, and BBB and the next day they mailed a letter to me stating that the account has been closed by them and to "be assured that this account will be deleted from my credit report and your credit report will no longer reflect this information". It's been 10 days and it's still showing up with both of the CRAs.

 

Can someone tell me how long this normally takes? (few days, weeks, months, etc.) If it doesn't disappear soon should I fax a copy of it to the CRAs?

Some CAs only update monthly. I'd give it 30 days.

if within 30 days is still showing up, instead of contacting the CRAs, send a follow up to the BBB and the AG using the case number they gave you the first time.
