It's fine if we bump it when we need it.

Helping a poster and found another that PFD's.

 Plaza Collections will delete:

"We delete all trade lines for accounts that satisfy the balance after 2-years from the date of delinquency as reported on your trade line. An account is considered satisfied if the account is paid-in-full or settled for a lesser amount."

You can make payments online and use a CC. https://plazaservicesllc.com/payments/

Re: Collection agencies that do PFD

We can add Deville asset management to the PFD list. 

today I called them and negotiated a 12k, 3.5/4 year old collection to settle for 5k, and delete within 48 hours. 

Very easy to work with CSR, I asked what settlement offers they had if I paid a lump sum today and to send me an email letter that they will delete upon payment. She asked a manager, said yes 5k,  I had the email within 15mins, paid over the phone.

Please feel free to add your own experience with collection agencies and I'll try to keep the list current. 

 

One big caveat to this list are medical collections. There are other possible ways of dealing with those, so if your CA is not on the "will delete" list, it's still possible to get them removed. 

 

Will delete 

 

LVNV - Changed policy, deletes now. YAY

Portfolio Associates - will delete per statement on their website. Installment payments and settlements get deleted, too

Midland Collections - will delete 2 years after DOFD per statement on their website. Installment payments and settlements get deleted, too

Add Astra - will delete 2 years after DOFD per statement on their website Installment payments and settlements get deleted, too

Williams & Fudge - will delete and will provide letter stating so. 

Cavalry Portfolio Services - will delete per statement on their website. Installment payments and settlements get deleted, too

CF Medical LLC - will delete and will provide letter stating so. Must be paid by certain date, okay to settle for less. 

AFNI - will delete, irrespective of the age of the delinquency

Phoenix Financial LLC - will delete and send email/letter stating so. 

Common Wealth Financial -will delete and provide  email stating so 

Aargon Agency  - will delete, provides letter to submit to CRA, but skip this step so it's not treated as dispute. Deletes in couple weeks

Optimum Outcomes - will delete and will provide email confirming deletion upon payment 

First Credit Services - will delete. If you ask CSR about it, they may not even know what you're talking about, but collection gets removed from CR. 

MARS, Inc - Will delete 

Affiliated Management Services - Will delete

Caine Weiner - Will delete 

Fidelity Collections- Will delete, will not provide anything stating that. Updates at the end of the month 

Plaza Collections - will delete accounts older than two years

Deville asset management - will PDF, possible to ask for email confirmation, settlements get deleted, too.

 

Might delete 

 

Source Receivables - If paid in full. Might require some leg work. 

EOS CCA - Will delete with some work

Enhanced Recovery - Really mixed bag. Most deletion occurred when debt paid to OC and asked to be recalled beforehand. 

Diversified Consultants - they dont delete, but if collecting for Sprint or ATT, contact  OC and ask for collection to be recalled. 

Convergent - they dont delete, but possible to pay OC and get it recalled. Contact OC first

 

Most likely will not delete 

 

National Credit

Allied Business Services

Waypoint Resource Group

Penn Credit

Delivery Financial services 

 

 

 


Diversified Consultants looks like they are going out of business. They came off all 3 CRs, I got in touch with Sprint to see if my account had been forwarded to another CA, they said no, I paid, and now free of this CA reporting on my CRs. Others may find now is a great time to deal with the OC.
