Not sure what happened....I guess its a good thing

I sent a collection agency a PFD letter, they stated they could not delete a trade line with all the legal mumbo jumbo.  The last sentence read, "We have, however, assisted you by updating all three credit bureaus with the news that your account has been paid in full."


Only thing is, I have never paid this collection, thats why i sent the PFD.  I guess I will see what happens.

From what I have learned here, this will not raise your score.  It will make you look better on a manual review however.

Yes, eparker, I agree.  That was a stupid response.

Neither did you pay the collection debt, nor did their response refer to deletion from your CR.  Which is what a PFD requests.

Paid in full, even if you had paid, would not have mandated any CR deletion.


They obviously dont know what they are doing.
