Get a copy of all three credit reports, then dispute them. The credit reporting agencies will contact the creditors to verify. If the collection agencies do not report the items paid, you will need to contact the collection agencies individually, and provide them with proof of payment. Do this by certified mail, with a letter advising them to correct the records within 30 days. If they do not, you may have recourse thru the FTC under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Yes, once you paid them, then you would no longer be in collections. Your credit report should update to reflect that it was either paid, or settled.

Good question. There are a few tactics to remove collections from your credit report; First, is the debt paid off? If so, the option I would suggest is to write a dispute letter to that specific credit bureau. If the debt has not been paid yet, typically, you can negotiate with the creditor to remove the collection account from your credit report if you pay the debt (WARNING!!! make sure this is stated in writing before you send any money).

Judgments will stay on your credit report for up to 7 years whether paid or not. You can dispute your judgments to the credit bureaus by sending dispute letters to each of the credit bureaus. The credit bureaus will have to investigate the items and if they are paid they have a greater chance of being removed.

Removing Paid Accounts from a Credit ReportIf you haven't paid your collection account(s) yet, negotiate with the collection agency. State that you plan to pay in full, and that you want them to agree to remove the item from your credit report. If you've paid, and the item remains on your report, go to the credit bureau and dispute the item that has been paid. It's a good chance that the collection agency has purged your record and therefore will NOT verify a dispute investigation from the credit bureau. If the credit bureau doesn't receive verification from the collection agency in thirty days, they are obligated by law to delete the item from your credit report. Only the collection agency or the credit bureaus can remove collections off your credit report. You can either negotiate with the collectiona agency or dispute it to the credit bureaus.

Yes, as long as you are all paid up and your credit is good enough to qualify.

The collections and purchase schedules measure the speed at which receivables are collected and purchases are paid. To the extent collections do not cover purchasing costs and other financial requirements, the firm must look to borrowing to cover the deficit.

If the lien appears on your credit report, you dispute it with the credit bureau. You can do this by ordering your credit report on line and issuing a dispute through their investigation department, of course, you will have to provide evidence for your claim. this website gives you sample dispute letters. But if it has not been seven plus years my experince is they still will not delete a paid off account.
