Verizon Collection DELETED!!

I have had a collection from Verizon on my credit report since 03/2015 for a non-payment of the final bill which was having an early termination fees.

I have been trying to remove this collection since then. I tried to a PFD, called multiple reps. planetfeedback and couple of goodwill letters.

Last night I emailed to their executive office and this morning I woke to this wonderful email. Finally Verizon agreed to remove the collection. Looking for a nice bump on my credit scores as this was my only baddie in almost 5 years.Smiley HappySmiley Happy

 

Dear XXXX,

 

Thank you for contacting Verizon Customer Support. We have recently received your notification of dispute. We have reviewed the information you provided and we have completed all actions required to ensure that the above referenced account has been removed from your credit report.

 

A request for deletion was sent electronically to all of the major credit-reporting agencies. Please allow up to 30 days for any changes to be reflected on your credit report.

 

Please note that under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act a creditor collecting its own debts is not a "debt collector". Any request for "debt validation" pursuant to Section 15 USC 1692g of the FDCPA is therefore not applicable to Verizon.

 

We appreciate this opportunity to serve you.

 

Sincerely,


Verizon Customer Support
