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

Its a collection on my reports from a CA. I never tried paying back OC because I wasnt working.

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! :smileyhappy:

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.
