So I recentrly purchused a home this year and over the holidays I got some mail at my parents house from a company named Harris & Harris of Illinois, Ltd. It says ia Delinquency Notification and is asking me to pay a amount of 5xx.00 dollars.
This is regarding some old 1-2 year old unpaid tolls. ( I called the toll company and tried to pay them directly but they said they could not accept payment from me and that I need to contact the collecting company to make payment. ) I currently do not see anything on my credit report regarding this so my question is will this show up on my credit report once I call and make a full payment to them ?
Thank you !
Someone was saying non-contract debt such as parket tickets, are no longer allowed to be listed on credit reports. I would think tolls might fall under non-contract debt, but i could be wrong.
Current CRA policy, as stated in their National Consumer Assistance Plan, is not to include collections based on debts for which there is no contract or payment agreement with consumer. That includes tickets and fines.
Regardless, if you owe the money, then pay the bill. Bonus - this will prevent negative entries on your credit report.
What if they were on your credit report, and dropped off after 7 years. If you all of the sudden decided to pay them, would they re appear on your report?
