Success! AFNI TL delete via GW.

[ Edited ]

Another one just dropped off. Smiley Very Happy

 

TL: Four years old, OC was Qwest. Settled for less than full balance in 2010.

 

Method: GW letters via email and fax.

 

 

I sent emails to the following general addresses, which got me quick responses:

 

recoveryteam@afni.com

 

rso@afni.com

 

 

I also have more specific emails/fax #s/addresses available. PM me if you'd like the list.

 

Once again, thank you FICOforums! Y'all rock! Smiley Happy

Re: Success! AFNI TL delete via GW.

I had a collection from AFNI ($88) that was not mine, but didn't have any success fighting it.

 

I sent a goodwill letter asking for it to be removed because I paid it in full 3 years ago.

 

I sent it to the email on their website for "general inquiries" - pretty easy to figure out since they are "customer service" oriented Smiley Wink

 

I got a reply and a .pdf letter stating it would be removed immediately.  AFNI is pretty efficient.

Congrats on that! I also had luck with AFNI aka ANDERSON FINANCIAL. The only problem is they mailed me a delete letter, but it still showed up on my credit for like a year after. Finally it has come off!

Re: Success! AFNI TL delete via GW.

Ok.... this certainly works!!!!! I emailed AFNI on Friday, and I this morning I received a email with an attached PDF file stating they have filed a request to delete from all three CRA's.

 

Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Thanks Renata for sharing.

Re: Success! AFNI TL delete via GW.

Inspired by people here, I did the same, and had success with a GW deletion within minutes Smiley Very Happy

 

Note that I called yesterday and was told over the phone that "We don't do deletions", but sending emails instead did the trick.
