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

That's what I was thinking. Thanks Pizza you are the man. Anymore suggestions from anyone else. Do I pay first or get a letter from them first ?

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:
