You can't MAKE a credit card company reopen an account. You can call the credit bureau and request that they change the status to indicate that is was closed by you and not the credit grantor. Or, you can simply put a notation in your credit report stating that the account was closed by you and not the card company.
None if it is indeed your account. However, your credit report should indicate that the account is paid and closed.
Typically these types of actions can be seen on your credit within 30-60 days. There are no laws or rules that requires a credit reporter to immediately post "closed" or "settled" to an individuals credit. Most just report data to the credit bureaus once monthly.
This depends only if the creditor originally reported your account to your credit report.
A credit report will show that an account is either active or settled. If the account is settled, it means that it has been paid and is closed.
A charged off account is similar to a collection on your credit report. The creditor has written off the debt owed and closed the account. The debt is still valid though and can be collected on. The charge off will lower your credit score unless removed. You can dispute a charge off and this give the credit bureaus 30 days to verify the charge off or it must be removed from your credit report.
Yep! If the ambulance company turns your account over to a collection agency that agency might report the collection on your credit. Medical collections are the most common type of collection on a credit report.
Only the credit bureaus the collection agency can remove a collection from your credit report. The collection agency won't do it now since it is paid and they have no reason to. You can dispute it to the credit bureaus and ask for verification on the account. They will have 30 days to verify the items or it must be removed from your credit report.
that it has been closed by either you or the company- either way it shows as a negative in your report
If the account is legitimately yours, then you cannot legally have it removed from your credit report. However, if you paid the collection account off, it should be reported as paid on your credit report. Still, the accounts will not be removed from your credit report for 7 years.
Forever, since it looks good on your report.
Yes. Creditors report to the credit reporting agencies the terms under which an account is closed. It looks bad and is a slightly more derogatory status when an account is closed by the lender vs. closed by the customer.
If a credit card is closed it cannot have a balance. Just because you have stopped using the ard you cannot declare the account closed. If you owe even one penny, the account is open and the credit card company can 'report a 30 day late'
only like 5 months -andrea It must depend on the type of credit report. My 2007 CSC Mortgage Services report has credit card accounts on it that I closed in 1997. No late payments, no negative marks. Just listed there as a closed account. -Lee
Chances are good the bank sold the account to a collection agancy. Contact a local attorney for state specific info.
You pay the collection agency.
When I had a collection deleted from my credit it made my score go up. It will take several weeks.
Yes they can and they probably will. if you are concerned about your credit profile, it would not be a good idea to stop paying.
Contact the credit reporting agency from where you got the report. They have the contact information and can provide that to you upon request.
Only the collection agency or the credit bureaus can remove a collection off a credit report. You can negotiate the removal of the collection off the credit report upon final payment of the debt owed. Some collection agencies have policies against this, some don't. You can also redispute it to the credit bureaus as many times as they will let you. It has a higher chance of being removed if it is paid off and an older account.
shut the fu ck up.
No, once a collection agency relinquishes their claim to the account by selling it they must remove all negative trade lines related to that account from your credit reports. Hope this helps ST
It is always a good policy to attempt this. But whether or not you succeed in getting a paid collection account removed from your credit report is totally within the discretion of the creditor. There is no law that requires or compels credit reporting. The Fair Credit Reporting Act states that IF an account is reported, then it must be correct. Therefore, collection agencies and creditors usually will tell a consumer that they "must" by law report the accurate nature of the account, which would be a paid collection, as opposed to removing the account.
