Re: Paying off collection account.

I offered to pay #2 to not report...and then #2 started listing me with a dispute comment on #2.  No movement on #1 for 2 years.

I'm confused. Did you mean "...and then #1 started listing me with a dispute comment on #1"?

 

Is #2 reporting?

Yes sorry if I didnt make that clear.  In my update yesterday (post # 8) all of that pertains to #2.  #2 started listing me after I offered to pay #2 the full asking amount if they would not list me.  They are the ones reporting me with the "dispute" tag.  

 

Nothing is happening with #1 right now, they have had me listed for years, but nothing has changed with them.  Hope that clears it up.

Ah got it. Skimmed over it.

 

So, #2 and #1 are reporting. IMO, #1 should not report at all. If you DV'd both, just wait it out. #1 should disappear. #2 would likely verify and when they do, send a PFD via mail.

Re: Paying off collection account.

Yes I figure after a DV for #1 I could get that removed.

 

I just cant believe that #2 started reporting me after I offered to pay them in full.  Now I have a fresh collections accnt on my report.  Im also not too optimistic about a PFD if they didnt accept my first offer to "pay for not listing me".  

 

This may have just screwed me out of my mortgage.

Re: Paying off collection account.

MCM was probably going to report no matter what. Still worth going through the process though. If approaching a mortgage, then I wouldn't wait for the DV results and I would launch into PFDs. I'd also search around for GW success. I don't recall too many posts with MCM at $0. Maybe they are open to deleting.

Re: Paying off collection account.

Yea I think I will go right for a PFD and see if they bite, or else just pay it off and GW them.  Thanks for your help.
