Re: Should I pay for delete?

Why do you think it is incorrect? Are you positive?

Since you've already disputed it, I'm honestly not sure what your best course of action should be. Sorry. I've limited experience in that field.

I'm sure others will chime in shortly with their opinion/advice. Hang tight. :smileyhappy:

Score wise... Over 6 years, it's about to disappear after 7 years and 1 month. Do nothing and it goes away soon. But if you feel you should pay it for other reasons, you can do that. I personally would be afraid to touch it after 6 years worried they would somehow make it stay or update on it. I might let it fall off then pay it if I felt I owed the money. But I'd just leave it until it falls off.
