Past Due/Collection Accounts Removed After 7 Years?
Will an account be removed if you are still making payments? I have an account that I am making very small payments towards a very large balance. Thankfully the creditor agreed to this to help me out and stop harassing me. The account went past due about 4 years ago. So what happens three years from now if I am still making payments? Is it removed from my credit report?
