For the past several years, I’ve been carrying a collection on an old credit card debt that got racked up back in the 1990s … when I was unemployed for awhile at the end of 1998 and early 1999, this debt ballooned up, and ultimately went into collections. Since 2001, I’ve been paying it back … today, some 6 years and $9,000.00+ later, I cleared the debt completely.
I’ve received the release letter from the collection agency, showing paid in full on 9/20/2007.
Still working on clearing out my current credit card debt … but I expect to have at least half of that cleared by the end of the year, and closing out some of those accounts.
And then I’m looking forward to watching the FICO score climb. It’s all part of rebuilding my life.
