I paid off some collections and my score went up 50pts!
I paid off a new judgement (medical) and about $600 in old collections and my score went up about 50 pts! I originally started @ 515 before doing some disputing, some things fell off, most did not. So, I PAID some of them. I just paid off the remaining $900 in medical collections and look forward to more of a score improvement. Whoever said paying old debt is not effective is wrong. WOO HOO! Pay you debts and see your score go up!
