credit repair help

My credit is in very bad shape and I need some long-term help. My highest score is 536 from EQ. Today I made a few phone calls to the collection agencies one bill was for 434.00. I asked and begged for them to remove the report from my file if I pay in full or settled for 50%, the person said they cannot remove it, so I went along with the settlement amount for 163.00 for two payments my first payment is tomorrow. Did I go about this PFD thing all wrong? Should I just send the letters to the creditors instead of calling?

Re: credit repair help

Paying will do you little good. Did you tell them you won't pay unless they delete?

I asked the person “if I PIF or settle for 50% will you delete my file from my report and she said she can’t and that the only thing I can do is settle or PIF”.

I should have sent the letter instead of calling right?

 

Is this something that i have to keep pounding at them?

Talk to someone else. Let them know you will not pay without PFD.

Re: credit repair help

How do I get my score high 660 by the end of Aug. 2007? I need it to buy this house I want. I have paid off alot of mine collections accounts. And paying on time on my car payments. My car payment will be finished in Oct. 2007. And I just got 2 new credit cards to improve my score. What other things can I do?
