Q: I’ve been told that I do not need to pay my unpaid collections. Is this true?
A: A collection or charge-off account that is reporting and updating each month needs to be paid. If not paid, it will continue to suppress the credit scores regarding of the good information that is reporting.
1) According to the Credit Repair Organizations Act, “Neither you nor any ‘credit repair’ company or credit repair organization has the right to have accurate, current, and verifiable information removed from your credit report.”
2) If someone guarantees you the removal of a verified unpaid collection or charge-off; they are not in compliance with the law. A) By law they cannot make such a guarantee and B) refer to #1.
3) If the debt is valid then you owe the debt. Depending on the Statute of Limitation, the creditor could file a suit against you to obtain a Judgement, which can lead to wage garnishment or worse, a levy placed on your bank account.
The only way to legally release yourself from a valid debt is through Bankruptcy in which we suggest speaking with a Bankruptcy Attorney.
