Re: Removals

Not sure about the other ones, but Midland has a policy (it's even stated on their website) that if the debt is more than 2 years old, they delete it after payment whether in full or for less. They report about every two weeks or so. You should have a deletion within about 6 weeks if it was already 2 years old. If not, when it turns 2, they should delete it.

Re: Removals

Speaking from my own experience, I believe along with Midland, IC Systems and Credit Collections delete.  I had one each with them and I know for sure IC deleted and I'm pretty sure Credit Collection did as well.

Re: Removals

Long time lurker, used this board extensively to clean up my credit. I have used info here to go up about 125 points in four years. Probably not as impressive as some but it is what it is.

 

I wanted to add my experience with Real Time Resolutions for anyone searching about them in the future, looks like you have a baddie with them.

They had a deficiency judgement on my second after foreclousre. About 58K. They called and sent letters constantly. They were hammering my credit with an open account show 120+ days late still open, I was at 610 Fico and screwed. No one would give me a pot to piss in. 

 

I never called them. I kept everything in writing. They sent a few letters asking me to call them, I emailed once per day offering at 10% settlement of $5800. No response four about three months, it was December and I kept sending it daily, figured some collector would need to meet end of year goals. One day an email rolls in, they will take my settlement but will NOT pay for delete. My credit is being destroyed by this open account so I do it, I send them a certified check for $5800. Account closed, shows as settled, Fico bumps about 35 points over night. I get a secured card and start to rebuild as described many places on here. 

 

That was 2015, fast forward to now. I notice they are not reporting my Date of first delinquincy wrong, and it will be on my file an extra two years. For some reason they only show up on Equifax and Transunion. I dispute, comes back verified. I email them, nothing. I decided to take a different approach, I file a BBB complaint in their home state of Texas. Under desired resolution I put "I would like this account deleted" and a few weeks later they email me and the BBB and agree to delete it. 

 

Go figure, but my journey is over. The only reason I am in the 720 range now and not higher is my file is all pretty recent and some student loans, but there is nothing bad. Keep offering RTR 10% and eventually they will take it, but in my experience, they will not PFD.

Re: Removals

Hi myFICO members. Im new and the information here is incredible.

I recently got declined for a vehicle lease and the reason was cause my collections, so i decided to take action for my mistakes. I dont owe alot but its affecting me alot. 

 

In Collections Currently:

Credit Collection Serv: Orig Balance $377 

Credit Collection Serv: Orig Balance $1206

Jefferson Capitol: Orig Balance $745

I have a Car Loan Paid Off but W/ 14 late payment affecting me also, I called the loan company but they wouldnt help. 

 

I called CCS this morning and they told me to pay the account and they will mark it as paid. I want it PFD but the rep kept saying pay it off first and call us back.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you search the threads for both of those CAs you will find how others have done with them. From off the top of my head, I believe both do PFDs!

 

Good luck!

Re: Removals

Just called JC and the rep naviagted me to there FAQ section and assured me that 30 days after payment they will delete. 

 this is what it states:

Our policy is that we will request the credit bureaus delete the tradeline approximately 30 days after the final payment has been posted that resolves the account as paid in full or paid in full for less than the full balance.

 

Don't know if i should trust this.
