Current FICO 8s: Ex 705, Tu 743, Eq 704
Current FICO 9s: Ex 748, Tu ?? Eq 725
Total TLs: $140,000

Yes, my husband had 3 paid/settled accounts that were all removed last week. I just paid mine two days ago. Anxious to see how quickly it gets updated.

I suspect a lot of PRA reps are going to make their bonus this month!

My Portfolio Recovery collection was removed from my Experian and Transunion credit reports. I haven't checked Equifax yet.

I received the removal from TU and EQ but score increased only with TU. I never got the official myFICO alert about EQ. I have received anything about EX.

Anyone ever try this via their email? I trust my email correspondence more than speaking on the phone.

Not sure who is getting the pay for deletes from Portfolio. I got the letter saying the same thing, after reading the reviews decided to pay them. But I paid and they placed the account as settled and updated my last payment date to 2019. I got an alert from experian saying this will negatively impact my scores. Now the account will show as settled for an additional 7yrs!!!! I am definitely disputing this! Do not bother paying them!

Actually they update to the amount you pay first then to zero and then they remove it after 30 days of you paying them.
