Removing derogtory remarks-
I have poor credit due to a long medical issue. I have 6 collections and 6 derogatory remarks on my credit report thru 3 different agencies. I recently made a little money and contacted one of the collection agencies and they agreed to remove all collections and derogatory remarks that they were responcible for, 3 of each, in return for full payment. I got this in writing and proceeded to pay off these 3 accounts. I know i still have other issues and of higher values but trying to rebuild some credit while i had some temp funds. So even though i still have remarks and collections on my credit report, should i expect some sort of jump when the 3 collections and 3 derogatory remarks are removed and if so any idea on how many points. Thank you for any help or information.
