I've been working to get a $500 collection removed from credit report from Time Warner. It is now with Collection Bureau of America (CBA).
I sent CBA a PFD - They didn't respond
I then decided to call Time Warner to see if they could help. Time Warner said that if I went into a payment office and paid in full to Time Warner they could have it removed from my credit report.
This sounds nice, but I've read on the forums that even if you pay the OC that doesn't mean the CA is required to remove the collection from your CR. Is this true?????
Does Time Warner have the ability to recall a collection?
Thanks in advance for your responses.

It sounds like CBA is just the CA assigned to the debt, and not the owners of the debt. Is this the case? If it is, I would pay Time Warner - but get something in writing stating that is their intent. If they won't do that, just pay it and hope they live up to their word.

I had a collection account with TWC and sent an email to the office of the president. Recieved a return call with in 2 hours and paid the account and they sent a letter the the CA to remove the account from my Credit Report.

thanks to everyone for their responses. Fingers crossed it works out.
I didn't receive the PM with the email address. Would you mind sending it again?
