I was able to get medical collections off for clients in a few days, and they were thrilled! To those who are struggling with this, keep on it and you can help get them removed!

Some of the credit bureaus used to offer a rapid re-score for a fee. Not sure if they still do,but worth checking to those who need it,

2 weeks is good. Sometimes it takes 30 days or more depending on how much documentation is provided with first request to remove.

It may be best to ask a credit expert that question. They know the tricks of the trade.

I thought that creditors had 30 days to dispute the claim but I am guessing your proof was indisputable. So glad you updated us, well done!
