I usually post my questions on the collection agencies forums but now i am facing my "next phase".
I pulled my free credit report from all three credit agencies back in May of this year. By the end of this month, i would have paid off 5 accounts that was charged off by the original creditor and sent to collection agencies.
By the end of November, (cross my fingers), I should have receive all my paid settlement letters from those collection agencies.
What is my next step to get this off my credit report? Since I already received my free credit report for the year, when should i order a new credit report???
I am trying to be proactive and see what i need to do now or if i have to wait 30 days for the paid in full papers to start arriving.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
