How to remove a paid collection from my Credit?
So I had a viewer recently ask “How to remove a paid collection from your credit report?”
Hi everybody, Dave Sullivan for the Credit Guy T,V out at Philmont Scout Ranch with my son. We’ve just hiked fifty miles went up to the summit of Mount Baldy at twelve thousand four hundred feet. This week I want to talk about how to handle a Paid Collection on your credit report and if it is worth the time to try and remove it?
One thing I’ve learned on this track is don’t focus on the negative focus on the positive. If you have a paid collection and nothing else derogatory on your credit report and it’s a few years old it could actually help you. I won’t get into that right now, you can watch future episodes for how that could be. What I would tell you is focused on the positive don’t focus on the negative. If you have a paid collection, leave it alone. Every month the goes by it will actual help improve your credit score naturally, provided you don’t have any other derogatory information at all.
So focus on the positive, three to five bank credit cards with a long credit history, keep the balances down to five to nine percent of the total available credit. Then if you do have one or two 30-day late payments go for the good will removal of those. Try to focus on the positive, on the open active accounts and you’ll be much better off in the long run.
