How to get collection bill deleted when I didn't ask at the time but have a letter it's paid off?
I received a letter that the bill was paid off. Is there anything I can do with the letters I received saying its paid off. Will this be considered being deleted?

Just because something has been paid off does not mean that it will be deleted from your credit report. The tradeline on your report should be marked and "paid in full," if not, dispute with the credit reporting agency, and provide a copy of the letter.

All of the information you need to handle this can be found here on CK, or similar credit repair forums. You do not need the services of these so called "credit repair - law firms." Anything they will do for you, you can do for yourself for free! They are only out to prey on people and steal your money, just google their reviews and complaints! It's incredible these people are allowed to operate these scams.

Thank you for that information!  No I do not plan to get help from them because I have heard bad things. I am so glad I found this wedsite!
