Does "The Bureaus, Inc" Collection Company do PDF?

Does anyone here have any stories about dealing with "The Bureaus" Collection Agency, and know if they do PFD?

 

I've been able to PFD my issues with Applied Bank and Midland Funding, but The Bureaus has been a thorn in my side. 


This is my last derog (aside from late payments I am patiently waiting to age off) and I really wanna get this blight off my report.

 

Has anyone dealt with them? Do you have any tips?

 

Thanks!

This isn't one I can say I have seen info on. I would just go ahead and make your PFD offer.
"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Agreed. CAs are often easier than OCs for getting a PFD and it’s a good incentive to offer you in order to get you to pay, rather than just let it age away. Hoping they do it - please report back and let us know what happens. Someone in the future may need that info.
