ABSOLUTE ASSIGNMENT OF DEBT AGREEMENT and DEBT UPDATE LETTER (list below) to the creditor from a NEW DEBTOR that includes this clause from the Fair Credit Act to report debt in the new account owner’s name minus the negative debt.
Example: When original creditor OR collection agency attempts to collect a debt, they have the power to negotiate with the debtor to remove the negative item from the credit bureaus in exchange for an agreement to pay.
This is power they have in the Fair Debt Collection Acts. The original creditor will be used as a catalyst to report the newly negotiated transferred debt in the NEW debtor’s name.
Below is the DEBT UPDATE LETTER to send to the ORIGINAL CREDITORS.
DEBT UPDATE LETTER
Creditor’s Company Address
RE: Acct # XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
Dear (CREDITOR’S NAME Example Chase Bank)
I am writing to you today regarding account #XXXX-XXXX-XXXX which was originally held by __________________________. I
have legally assumed this debt as a good will because ____________________has been unable to pay it and have paid it off in full.
I have documentation to prove it. (See attachment).
The purpose of my correspondence is to see if you would be willing to make a “goodwill” credit adjustment on the reporting of this account as PAID IN FULL to the three credit agencies under my name.
I would like to STRESS that the information currently being reported is accurate, (I am not disputing anything
with _____________). I am asking ____________for a courtesy gesture of goodwill in having the credit bureaus adjust this account with the new account holder.
I do recognize that this request is unique and that it may not be _CHASE BANK normal policy.
Please consider that the Fair Credit Reporting Act Section 623 (attached) demands that all accounts be reported and updated accurately if that account was reported to that credit agency.
Therefore, Example CHASE BANK___will do that in this case for the above referenced account. Your kind consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Best Regards, Your Signature.
Now you wait 10 – 45 days for debt to be updated on your credit report or a response from the creditor. Then check your credit report. This is what it looks like when you do it the correct way. Below is a screenshot of a debt we purchased and it posted on April 04, 2019. You can see the date on the credit report that we purchased for $22 dollars below with age on it.
Remarks Dispute resolved; reported by grantor RESPONSIBILITY TERMINATED FOR (DISCOVER CREDIT CARD) BELOW IMAGE This shows you got the debt you assigned the debt you are not responsible for the debt because you purchased it and you satisfied it on your end 😉 and it report positive on your credit report all 3 agencies. This is the result we are looking for in all cases.
Where Do I get the accounts from?
Do your own research in your local listings we are not responsible for you finding a good debt seller neither will we find them for you. This course gives you the information, we don’t not do the work for you.
How much do they cost?
They vary but they are normally pennies on the dollar. Some vendors sell only portfolios and some will sell single accounts you have to do your own research, start contacting them.
How long will the assigned trade lines stick?
For 7-10 years, because you purchased them, it’s yours.
Will the debt sellers put the trade lines on for me?
No, they will not, and do not ask them to. Do not ask them for advice either, their job is to sell you the accounts. This is the reason you purchased this information is to do them yourself.
How long does this take?
From the time you submit the information from the creditors anywhere between 10-45 days, depending on the creditor’s reporting cycle.
