The first thing I would suggest is to send a PFD request.    You pay, they agree to delete the account from your credit reports.

From personal experience, I've had success getting UNPAID medical collections from 2008 and 2009 deleted off ALL 3 CRAs by sending the pre-HIPAA letters. Check your inbox! Smiley Happy

Would you please PM me as well with info regarding pre-HIPAA letters?

 

Thanks :-)

I used to post my scores here. However, I'm prone to motion sickness and the ups and downs were nauseating.
