YES, COLLECTION ACCOUNTS ARE VERY TRICKY! IF THE ACCOUNT HAS DELINQUENCIES, THOSE MARKS WILL STAY ON YOUR credit report FOR 7 YEARS FROM THE DATE THEY WERE REPORTED. IF YOU INQUIRE ON THIS ACCOUNT IT WILL TRIGGER THE RESTAT PROCESS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER 7 YEARS BEFORE IT DISCONTINUES TO AFFECT YOUR CREDIT SCORE! SOL = Statute of Limitations This term refers to the time period allowed by state law during which a creditor may sue a consumer to recover money owed. Not only does SOL vary from state to state, but it also varies by the type of debt. Under certain states' laws, making payment arrangements can re-start SOL. SOL is very different from the reporting time period. Reporting time period is established by the federal law, the Fair Credit Reporting Act. It is set for derogatory accounts as 7 years from the month/year you last paid an account on time immediately priof to that accounts' default. Nothing can legally change this time period.

When an event is repeated, the probability of it occurring is squared. For instance, if an outcome had the probability of 1/4, then the outcome happening twice would have a probability of 1/16.

A:There are two key ways of deciding whether an action should be judged as good or bad. The first is to say that the action was good if the person's intentions were good, or bad if the intentions were bad, regardless of the outcome.

Is a collection agency obligated to remove debt from your credit report?

No! The only obligation of the collection agency regarding a debt is to accurately report the debt...i.e. balance outstanding, current status, and payment history. However, if you are paying or contemplating paying a collection agency, it would be wise to negotiate a positive outcome...i.e. the total removal of the account from your credit profile in exchange for payment. This should be negotiated prior to paying the collection agency and the agreement should be in writing.
