I got a letter today from Northstar Location Services- the debt is valid. Barclay charged off an account after I was two months late. I was like "yay I have money to pay you" "oh your account is charged off".
So. anyway. I got a letter from Northstar today that I owe $1,811.85. I don't actually know how I owe that much because the account was $1,300 when it was charged off a few months ago.
It is not showing on my credit report right now (at least not the one I have access to. How do I go about this? I am willing to settle the account in full, but I may offer them $1,300 first. In my letter should I still put "for the removal of the account from the three major CRAs" or how should I word that?
You state your terms as a request that they agree not to report their collection to any credit reporting agency.
It is commonly referred to as a pay for NOT reporting agreement.
I want to get this cleared up quickly. Do you think I would be best off to just pay in full the first time around or shoul I make a settlement offer?
