Contact dentist immediately and see if you can still settle with dentist. If not, see if the collection company will give you a letter removing the late from your credit if you pay now in full. They will show you paid it in full but what you need is a removal letter from your credit if it was reported on your credit. Move quickly for the collection will stay on your credit 7-10 years.

Your credit score is 563 and you just paid off 4 collection charges on your credit report how will that effect your credit score?

Not much other than having the collection marked from unpaid to paid. If you are paying off credit collection companies, negotiate to get a letter from them telling you that the amount you are paying is the balance as agreed and that they will remove it from your credit report. Do not pay until you get that letter. If you pay without doing that, it will stay on your credit report for about 3 years depending on when the collection was first put on your credit report. The fact that you paid it already just says on your credit report that instead of unpaid the collection is marked as paid. If you already paid either repair your credit or get a reputable firm in the BBB who has a money-back guaranteed policy.

Now, whether you are paying in full or settling, it has the same affect on your credit score--Paid collection or paid P&L or charge-off account. This will remain on your credit for 7 years. This is why it is important that you get a deleting letter. Source: Phil Turner, Credit Bible.

What is a letter of collection from a collections law firm?

A collection letter from a la firm is the same as a collection letter from any other debt collection agency.

That means the correspondence you first receive from them must identify the creditor, the amount of the debt, and advise you of your right to dispute and seek validation ofthe debtwithin the 30 days following the receipt of the letter.

What should you do if you had a cc judgment against you for 6000 and you paid 3000 and three years later a new credit agency has you in court wanting 8000 and says you only paid 200?

No credit agency will sue you. I believe you mean collection agency. Send the collection people a Cease and Desist letter (google "fair credit act cease desist). Then get a free credit report (your right!!)(the score doesn't matter so don't pay to get it). Then dispute the debt w/ the credit bureaus (the dispute letter will be found w/ the Cease and desist letter).

I filed Sept 19 2008 on Oct 27 2008 you received a letter from a attorney stating that they are to collect for this credit card company that you did list on your bankruptcy can they collect from you.?

Advise the attorney of the BK filing shortly before his letter date, and he should back off and file a claim with the court.

When a collection agency buys a debt from a credit card company does a new statute of limitations start from the day it was purchased or does the collection agency's statute remain the same?

The statute of limitations starts counting immediately when you made the last payment to either the credit card company or the collection agency. If you ever make a payment to either of them the statute of limitations will start over. If you have not made any payments to the credit card company recently and the credit card company sells the debt to the collection agency, the collection agency's statute of limitations will be from the date that you last paid the credit card company. Furthermore, if the statute of limitations is over and the collection agency continues to keep collecting the debt, you can send them a letter (certified is the preferred method) to stop all contact with you. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), they would be required to stop immediately upon receipt of the letter (unless they are taking legal action in a court then they can send you legal notices only). If they do not stop, you are entitled to collect monetary damages as outlined in the FRCA. This does not stop the collection agency from reporting to your credit report. Your credit reporting falls under a different set of rules which basically removes most collections debts (except for court judgements) after 7-10 years.
