No.

Once a person is being threatened by a collection agency, there is a high liklihood that the damage to the credit report is already done - a chargeoff or collections transline will already be in your credit report.

Having a payment plan merely gets the debt paid and on-time payments are usually NOT reported (however, if you miss a payment, that company can and will send a negative tradeline to further damage your credit reputation).

If you don't pay your credit card you will get a nasty call from a Collection Agency demanding immediate payment.




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.



Usually the collection agency won't take it off until the bill is paid in full.


if a collection agency has not bought out my debt from the original company can the collection agency look up my credit report?



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. See www.myfico.com/CreditEducation/WhatsInYourScore.aspx for details of a FICO score.


if collection agency is not from your lender, but third party, then you need to fax them proof of your payments to your lender or financial insitution and have them send you a letter stating that they will not report you to credit bureau. and also have them contact the collection agency you are making payments. asian623 http://www.myspace.com/scionturboracing


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.


Unless you have given a collection agency written permission to pull a full credit report they are in violation of credit laws.



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.


They don't do anything. Failure to pay bills causes credit to be reported badly and your credit score to go down. All a collection agency does is go after you for the money.


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.


if a collection agency isn't paid, the debt can be put on a persons credit report. The collection agency can also choose to garnish a persons paycheck.


Yes, Collection agency can do that. But contact a good collection agency like Guardian Credit Services, they know will how to deal with customers to get money


If the collection agency did not accept your payment, the debt should be discharged from their control. You might need to contact an attorney to make sure these debts are removed from your credit report. If you are making payments to the company that sent you to collections, they will need to remove you from the collections agency.


You did not include a jurisdiction for your question. Where I live the collection agency can report any failure or late payment of a scheduled payment. That means if you are on weekly they can report you weekly. If you are late by 1 minute they can report that every time also.


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.


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.


It will most likely be turned over to a collection agency. Then it will be reported to the credit bureaus which will make it difficult for you to get loans in the future.


after 180 days of non payment your account will be charged off and turned over to collection agency


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.
