There are plenty of success stories in here of sending a DV to a paid CA. Often the CA won't take time to validate it so they will delete. Look for one of the many DV letters in this forum and you'd probably have to make some changes to it.

The collection agency handling the collection promised to delete. They were double reporting and I didn;t relaize it. They deleted their entry but not BMW financial. I know...they had no legal right to delete BMW's entry. I've gotten over that.
The "largest past due balance" is just that, the largest amount that was due. Even if that figure was wrong, it doesn't have any bearing on the account or your score. Also on EQ, if you have the account to change to "settled collection" or "paid for less than due" or even "paid in full", the damage would be the same. Closed date doesn't matter.

I have GW'd them over and over again and they have repeatedly told me no!When I call...they won't even return my calls. Hang up and they again...they won't connect me with anyone else. I get the same jerk,. It's the same storyline over and over again.From all the reponses I've seen...I basically have to live with this?
