Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

Looks like you've done well considering the number of derogs. Will you get full 100% PFD's? Probabaly not. The ones that wont budge will take time to heal. Once the last one falls off. Thats when it will all be over. And your scores will rise. Keep hammering away for PFD's. But in the meantime build on what you got now for the future once all the baddies are gone. Wish you the best of luck.

I don't have any suggestions but I wanted to say CONGRATS on all of the success so far! Especially on Synchrony/Walmart. I cannot get that egg to crack Smiley Mad

Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

I have one collection remaining for a old Cox bill that I need to get pfd. The others have been deleted or in current goodwilling. Is there a way to speed up a score increase. I'm looking to sell and purchase another home in the near future.

Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

The funny thing is. I've had success with synchrony/Walmart but the synchrony/Ashley's wont budge. I guess I have to rejoice into the victory!

Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

My only suggestion is to get what cox said to you in writing before you pay it.  That way if the CA doesnt update to 0 balance you have some leverage to get it corrected or removed for inaccuracy.  Good job and keep it up.

Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

Update: collections 2 remaining

PRA has been deleted today (7 point increaseSmiley Happy

Midland funding (PAID last month)
Still waiting for deletion.

Credit managment/Cox-
Settled with Cox today for 816.00 (original balance 912)
Best casinrio, Cox recalls debt as agreed and credit managment is deleted from report.
Worst casinario credit managment updates balance to zero and the collection begins to age.

Either way, I owe God the glory for allowing to to get this far.

I went from 12 collections to all being paid off and removed. Well, that's if the credit managment collection works in my favor. Thank you for the encouragment!

Re: Making great Progress!! ANY SUGGESTIONS

Might I ask how in the world you got synchrony to agree to remove a chargeoff? I have two old (since paid) chargeoffs from Synchrony. The CAs removed their entries upon payment, but I was under the impression Synchrony wouldn't touch their tradelines for anyone.

^^^ I would love to know too. I’ve contacted them several times and each time I’m politely told to kick rocks, even though I have a current Synch-backed Lowe’s card.
