Is this on the CAs letterhead? If not, don't send a penny.
I am trying to PFD with a difficult CA. They sent a letter that says "...Upon reciept of payment will request removal of tradeline with Experian, Equifax and Trans Union of all accounts."Is this the same as a full deletion of the collection item? I'm not that familar with the term tradeline. Does it mean the whole negative report, or just the payment history and status?
