I have three student loans from about 12 years ago that where charged off. I paid them off in full two years ago, yet they are still reporting on my credit report. They are being reported as paid in full; however, next to that it lists a loan amount and still shows a balance. The loan amount would be the original amount borrowed, but there must be a mistake since it shows a balance even though it states paid in full. Is this affecting my credit score? Should I get a letter stating paid in full from the lender and send it in to you?
How do I find out what I really owe and if any creditor will settle for less if I can pay off the balance? Can I get a list of all my creditors from you?
If you have a derogatory record on your credit report from a collection agency and you pay off the debt in full, will the debt be taken off of your report sooner? Or do you still have to wait the seven years?
How do I have old credit card accounts that are long ago closed or paid off removed from my credit report? I know that my score is negatively affected because of so many “open” accounts!
I have student loans on my report with different amounts but the same account number. They are all under accounts in good standing. I think that they are repeated. They are listed nine times! I also have two other student loan accounts with the same account number but with a different company. I have consolidated my school loans twice so I’m assuming that they are from before I consolidated. Do all these hurt my credit? They are all paid/never late/closed, but I’m concerned it shows that I over extend myself.
I am currently paying off a state tax lien. After the tax lien has been paid in full, how long will it take for my credit to be restored to good standing?
Does settling a debt that is showing negative on my credit report as a “collection”, get removed from my report as soon as it is paid? Does paying this debt help raise my credit score?
I pay my credit cards off in full before the payment is due, yet my report shows a 60 percent utilization ratio. Why is this happening and how can I prevent this besides getting more available credit or not using my cards?
I went through Chapter 13 bankruptcy. I paid all that I owed, and my Chapter 13 was discharged in March 2012. I requested an item be deleted since the seven years was up, and my request was denied. They said it was because the account was brought current. How can that be?
Does “potentially negative, closed” mean the account was paid?
