collection debt

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

what they said, but depending on what type of debt or if there is an error in the collection. it also depends on how old the debt is as well. Lets say, Dish turned it over to a collection agency but you paid dish. Send a validation letter to the collection agency and see if they can validate the debt if not you can dispute it and have it removed. There are many tactics you can use, best tool is your computer to do some research.

paying negative items off does not remove them from your report. they stay on your credit for 7 years.
