Re: Collection Agency says it CANNOT delete?

I have gotten 3 collections agencies to delete the accounts after paying them in full. 1 just yesterday, 1 last Friday and 1 in July. These collections arose because I moved and didn't receive notice which is what I told them repeatedly. Thier first response is always to say that they cannot delete. I wrote very nice letters about 3 weeks apart explaining my situation and how terribly it was harming me in qualifying for good rates on a home. I never got a response. It's just a matter of being persistent. Afterwards, I began calling and probably spoke to 15 different people. Finally I was given the name of the person in the disputes department and began writing directly to him. The process took about 3 months but it is worth it in the end. Good luck to you. Don't give up.
