When I had a collection deleted from my credit it made my score go up. It will take several weeks.
Afraid so. If they have bought the account and the SOL has not expired.
The original account with a normal credit company went to a third party collection agency. Only after it went to the collection agency was the debt paid and then the account closed.

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
7 to 10 yrs from the time it appeared initially on your credit. Contact original creditor & see if they will help you with a letter saying there was a billing error, send the letter if you can get one to the collection company & have them remove the collection account for it was entered in error. Cry a lot and ask for mercy.
No! ###### Yes if they have permissable perpose to do so (ie: Collection On Your Account)
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.
only if you and your lender report it to the other bureaus
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.
This depends only if the creditor originally reported your account to your credit report.
You pay the collection agency.
Contact the original creditor. Provide proof of your payment. They need to retract the account from the collection agency. The account could have been sold to the collection agency or simply assigned to them. For your purposes, it does not matter which situation applies. You paid the original creditor and your credit report needs to reflect this. After they do what they need to do to get the account back; you then dispute the entries with all three credit bureaus. The original account should show as a paid collection and the other collection account should be removed from your credit report entirely.
When your Amazon account is closed, the credit card info that is associated with the account will not be kept by the company and will be deleted also.
Is the doctor going to turn the account over to a collection agency? A collection account would hurt your credit. Is the collection agency going to sell the account to another agency, thus extending the time period it shows on your credit report? If they do, it could hurt your credit for an even longer period of time.
YES, THIS COLLECTION ACCOUNT CAN BE DISPUTED; WHICH MEANS THAT AFTER THIS IS DISPUTED YOU CAN ALSO REQUEST FOR THIS ACCOUNT TO BE REMOVED FOR GOOD WITHOUT HAVING TO WAIT FOR THE SEVEN YEAR PERIOD. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO HAVE A CLEAN CREDIT HISTORY WHICH IN TURN INCREASE YOUR CREDIT RATING.
Yes Once a collection account is reported to your credit history, its origin no longer matters. If money is owed and it gets listed with a credit reporting agency as a collection account, it affects the main factor in your credit score: Payment history.

Yes, this is only reported on your credit report if it is a collection account.
There are some collection companies that will agree to what is termed as a pay for deletion. You pay in full or make a settlement and they will delete the account from reporting at the credit bureaus. Most collection companies won't. To get the account deleted from the credit bureaus you need to use the consumer credit laws to get the results you want. Simply the law states (FCRA - Fair Credit Reporting Act) that nothing can stay on your credit report if it is inaccurate, incomplete, obsolete, or can not be verified. This gives you the power to challenge how the account is reporting. Unfortunately, not many people do this well. In addition, your power increases if a collection agency violates the FDCPA - the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. You may be able to use that as a wedge. If you are unsure how to do all this you might want to leave it to the experts at a credit repair company. Do your homework first. What training have they had, do they do this full time, are they recognized in their industry. A good starting point is NACSO - the credit repair industry's trade association.
YES, THE CREDITOR WILL REQUEST FOR EITHER PARTIAL PAYMENT OR FULL PAYMENT. ASK FOR A LETTER STATING THAT THIS COLLECTION WAS PAID IN FULL AND THAT YOU HAVE A ZERO BALANCE. ALSO; REQUEST THAT THIS LETTER STATES THAT THIS ACCOUNT NEEDS TO BE DELETED IN ERROR, SO THAT YOU COULD SEND THIS LETTER TO THE BUREAUS AND HAVE THEM DELETE THIS ACCOUNT OFF YOUR CREDIT REPORT AND RAISE YOUR CREDIT RATING.
You can attempt to have this account removed (or deleted or simply shielded from view) in two ways. The first way is by approaching the creditor or collection agency that placed the account. There is no federal or state law which requires or compels credit reporting. Any creditor can, at their discretion, remove or withdraw any account they choose to. The chances of them complying with this request is very small, but it is always worth a try. The second way is by disputing it with any credit bureau that happens to display the account. The (federal) Fair Credit Reporting Act states that bureaus have 30-days during which they must "verify" any disputed item or shield it from view. The accuracy, authenticity or status of the account is not an issue. If the collection agency cannot "verify" the account, for whatever reason, it would work in your favor.
While there's no definitive answer with respect to how many points your credit score may drop after a collection, a collection account is a clear indication that a loan, credit card or retail card was not repaid and payment history is one major contributing factor to your credit score. This can have a negative impact on your credit score.
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.
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.
By that date any delinquencies will be deleted because they'll be considered a write-off on your account.
