Can't get collections to update on my report!
I paid off a $2,000 collections account about a month and half ago and it's still showing up on my credit report as unpaid. So I called the debt collection company I paid the amount to, and they said I had to call another collections company that my account was under before being sold to the other company. So I called them, and they said I had to call the company who I paid the amount to. Called them, they told me there was nothing they could do since they don't report to the credit bureaus, then told me to call the other company again!!! I'm so fed up with this, I know it's probably too much to hope for to get it removed from my report completely, but at least if it could show it's been paid I'd be happy. Is there anything else I could do to get it updated/removed from my report without having to deal with the debt collection companies that apparently can't do anything for me? I tried the direct dispute option, does anyone have experience with this/does it work? Thanks!
