Removed is ALWAYS better. Paid collections do little for your score.. and can in fact bring your score down. And yes, a GW letter can be used for a paid collection.

My question is should I just ignore. Does anyone know the point difference for collection paid in full or completely removed? Has anyone ever heard of a Collection agency removing after PIF?Thanks
