Sent a DV about 2 weeks ago and got a reply back in the mail that they are deleting from all 3 reports! This was the only CA on my reports and it was rather recent (2011) so I'm hoping it will help my score a few points .. maybe? I know whether or not it's paid doesn't really affect the score, but hopefully it being deleted will help. Thoughts?
Starting Score: 585 Current Score: EQ Fico 766 | TU Fico 715 | EX Fico 753 Goal Score: 800
Depends on what else is on your report, but yes, deletion could cause a bump in score.
