We cant really guess that-  It will also be depend on other factors in your report.  So it will be a wild guess as everyone's report is different.

They were only medical though.  All duplicate entries. But they are gone, or will be.  I need to work on the charge offs.  Barclays wants to settle,I want the best negative entry possible...... so waiting .... They're supposed to call me.

Well, obviously, it will go up 7 times what sapingo's did - 749 points is what you'll gain! Simple Arithmetic, amiright?

 

All kidding aside, there's just too many variables to even make a guess.

For me it's anywhere between 30-50 points from removing one. But if you see my other thread, not everything comes off from all 3 bereaus at the same time.

To many things to consider, age of the accounts and amounts.  Accounts that are 4+ years and are under 100 bucks will have less impact.  So removing them will have little effect on scores.

They are within the past year, all 50 and 90 dollars.  Its from a copay where the hospital obviously lost the information.  Smiley Sad  Paid all those bills, but anyway, its still 7.
