What steps would you take to get this deleted from the CRAs?

 

Try going to the OC or straight to Fidelity? Anyone have experience getting Fidelity to do a PFD?

 

Thanks!

Frankly I don't remember doing business with the OC named. I did have a couple merchant accounts back around those years, but some changed names, merged, etc. and as far as I was ever aware, all of my fees were paid (in fact, for merchant accounts, they take the money straight out of the account they send deposits to usually). I may have been down as a personal guarantor at some point, though I just can't recall the name of the OC listed.

 

At this point, my scores are 690, 685, 665. If I can get my middle up to 700 then I can refi my mortgage and get away from the PMI. This is the only active negative mark on my report. I had some pretty severe collections in 2006/7 that I ended up settling and getting marked as "Paid as Agreed" in 2009. Hoping that clearing this up might give me that 15pt boost. Am I dreaming?

PFD are virtually impossible, in order to enforce an agreement to delete a contract would need to be signed. Collection agencies do not like to sign any thing that will take the leverage away from them.

 

Since your credit is high enough for about any credit I would just leave it alone. If they have contacted you send them a refusal to pay letter. This may force them to sue but in court if you offer a pay for delete and they accept there is a binding court order for them to delete it.

 

Why on earth would a person pay a debt that has not been proven to be their is beyond me. You will be wasting a lot of energy and time trying to get them to sign an agreement to delete.

I don't agree with this.  Many people have had success doing this.
