i paid off collection agency on several accounts but they still show as not paid -why
i paid off a credit card thru a collection agency. They sent me a letter saying it will be taken off my credit report as paid in full. A year later when I checked my report it was still there as not being paid. I called the collection agency who then informed me it can take up to 7 years for it to be removed. Thats not right so after that I never paid any other collection agency a penny. I also paid my Wells Fargo off in full to Wells Fargo but I see that is showing on my credit report also.
