So paid off collection account from LVNV Sep 1st. really wasn't sure what to expect. Last week was checking credit karma to see if it showed paid, it did but CK recommended disputing it so I did. Transunion give me a list to choose from so I clicked (creditor agreed to remove) Equiax (Balance wrong) got email today showing completely removed from both. So freaking happy only collection I had. Hope this help someone out don't give up.
A little update for you. 46 point increase on EQ just with that removal waiting for EX and TU to update scores. Went from 580 to 626 as of today
