Hello! Thanks in advance for help/advice. Here's the situation. 1. Husband was laid off. Several medical bills went into collections. 2. What I *want* to see happen is that the OC will recall the debt and allow us to make payments, thus removing it from our credit report. 3. OC office is saying they "can't" recall the debts, but of course, they can. 4. What law or legal precedence proves that they CAN? I'd like to be able to cite it to office and/or doctor, if I need to appeal directly to him. Again, thanks!
The commission for collecting on overdue student loans has dropped from 16% of the entire loan amount to 11%, a move that is expected to reduce the incentive for collection agencies to push large payments instead of more affordable plans such as the Income Based and Income Contingent plans.

Hi there, I'm not even positive how I ran across this site, but I'm glad I did. Lots of great ideas and positive support from one another. I'm looking for some advice; I see all sorts of conflicting information on how to eliminate and/or improve bad things on your credit report. Too much time on the interwebs!! Here's my story. Bought a home in 2006, was self employed in the real estate industry. Income went from 80K to almost nothing. A few p/t jobs & contract work and I 1099'd about 12K in 2008. Lost the home to foreclosure after attempting a failed short sale....yada yada yad
