It just went away...|
For the last seven years, I've been fighting a battle over a collection account for money I didn't owe.
Well, I won the court battle on whether I owed the money, but I wasn't able to get the collection account removed from my credit report without suing the collection agency in return--a costly process that would likely have cost substantially more than I would have paid just by settling the debt.
Legally the credit bureau couldn't keep the record longer than seven years--but I was pessimistic that the record would just vanish without me filing a dispute.
Sure enough, I checked my report today--and the collection account is simply gone.

I was most happy.

It gives me hope for my "collection" with Verizon. They left my phone on in Illinois for 2 months after I asked them to turn it off. Now they want me to pay for the two months, PLUS the cost of the collection. Yeah, right.
Only five more years to go...

Keep up the fight...in writing...phoning does know good, whatsoever I've found.
