Re: MEDICAL BILLS

What is the total of all collections?

 

Do you realize that they will no longer appear on your credit report after 7 years? I do not know if it is true or not, but some people believe that if you pay them it resets the clock and they will not fall off until 7 years from the paid in full date.

August 2010 TU FAKO 627 Sept 2010 TU per myFico.com: 643 CL util per myFICO: 88% with a $16,853 revolving balance
Oct 2010: Applied and received new credit lines: CL uil down to 75% EQ 648
Goals: Lower revolving balance, remove medical collection, 700 club

Nothing can reset the CRTP (Credit Reporting Time Period). Whether a derogatory is paid or unpaid it can only be reported for a certain amount of time.

 

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
EX - 9/09 pulled by lender 802
EQ - 7/06-663, 3/10-800
TU - 8/10-772
You can do the same thing with hard work
