Grape or hopeful5,
I am going to try emailing another CA to try and have something deleted, would you mind sending me the email you sent to AFNI, it appeared to be a very well written email. Thank you!

jenc55 - My email was literally 5-6 sentences long. It went something like this:
Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is _________ and I paid in full a debt that AFNI was collecting on for__________about a year ago. The final payment for the debt was made in __________.
My AFNI account number was: ___________
I am writing to you today to ask if you would kindly consider removing this account from my credit reports. I know this may seem like an odd request, but at the time I incurred this debt I _______________________ I have since had a clean credit report, and this collection account on my credit reports is my main derogatory item. I really appreciate your consideration and thank you very much for your time.
That was it. Hope that helps.

THANK YOU myFICO forums!!!
After reading about success a few people have had on here getting AFNI to delete a CA from your CRA, I emailed them on a whim to ask for it to be deleted and I just recieved a response stating they have gone ahead and done a credit deletion for me!!! Now my one and only CA has been removed!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Would you be able to supply me with the email address you used? I have a collection from them and they are really tough, i called to get information and was pretty much being tied to a chair and force spoon fed to give them a check over the phone. I would appretiate it.
