A $ 70 AT&T collection showed up in the last couple of weeks reducing my credit score by 80 points.
I have had nobody chase me for this money and would not have known about it had it not been for a change in my credit score. The “debit” is around 18 months old, even though it just showed up on my credit as a collection.
AT&T said they’ll fix it. ….will pull a/c back from collection agency and have deleted from my credit report.
Assuming no other negative items in the 4 weeks or so that this occurs, should I expect / assume my score to increase 80 or so points?
Sorry let me add to this, I ask if my score will increase if I “pay the collection”….but in actual fact, AT&T have said that although this $ 70 is indeed outstanding, they will wave it and I don’t need to pay hence they are acknowledging wrong doing on their end?
