Delete from CR?

If something is paid but is still on your CR, can you request it to be removed?

Exactly, send GWs until they just want you to go away.

Re: Delete from CR?

Of course you can request it be removed, but the creditor is under no obligation to remove it.  It will age off naturally after 7 - 7.5 years.

 

If by chance it's medical you can follow the HIPAA guidelines.  Otherwise check out some GW examples on this board.  Make them as heart felt as possible in hopes of getting a CSR somewhere that will be on your side.

 

Best of luck.

Re: Delete from CR?

Should I send this heartfelt GW letter to the CA or OC?

 

Thanks for all of your help!

To whomever is reporting.  an OC cannot delete a CA trade line and CA cannot delete the OC.

 

However, keep in mind that the collection notation hurts your score more than the OC post.

Unfortunately, one of them was a CA reporting. Sigh, so I guess I have to hope they remove it.

Never call a CA.

 

As bravo mentioned, send them a GW. Bug them until they delete.

Bravo,

 

What does this mean

"However, keep in mind that the collection notation hurts your score more than the OC pos"

 

If they leave a note on credit report about the delequency after someone dispute it?

A collection account is a major derogatory.
