  1. DH had a medical bill that was sent to CA (West Asset) for a hospital bill. I paid the OC (the hospital) directly on their website using my check card to my checking account. The OC took the money from my account, it is their name that appears on my bank statement. The CA then updated DH's credit report to reflect a zero balance & that it was paid. I've tried to get this removed, I've disputed it w/the CA, I filed a BBB complaint against the CA (they replied that they were not violating any Hippa laws & for me to provide proof) & I attempted the Hippa process by sending the 1st letter & waiting, only for the CR agency to send me a letter saying that it was verified. Is there any hope for me to get this removed. I was reading old threads & saw where someone had referenced the fact that if you could show proof that the OC was the one that received the funds then that may work in your advantage. I'm willing to go through the Hippa process again, I just want to get this removed as it is the last collection on DH's report. Any help/comments/suggestions are so greatly appreciated.
  2. MY DH HAD TWO HOSPITAL BILLS THAT WERE SENT TO WEST ASSET MANAGEMENT. I WAS NOT AWARE OF THE HIPAA ACT BEFORE I BEGAN TO HANDLE THIS. I FIRST DV'D WEST ASSET THEN I SENT A PFD & THEY REFUSED TO ACCEPT. SO I JUST PAID THE HOSPITAL DIRECTLY. NOW WEST ASSET HAS UPDATED THE ACCOUNT TO PAID BUT WILL NOT REMOVE & ADVISES THERE IS NO LEGAL BASIS FOR THEM TO REMOVE & I'M STARTING TO FEEL AS IF THEY ARE RIGHT & READY TO JUST THROW IN THE TOWEL. IS THERE ANY WAY FOR ME TO GET THIS PAID ACCOUNT REMOVED?
  3. DH has two paid collections w/West Asset Management reporting on Equifax & TransUnion. They were from two hospital bills that I paid on the hospital website online. After I did that I tried to DV West Asset to remove & they sent a letter saying the account was paid & satisfied & that was it. I then disputed them online, TransUnion removed one of the accounts but left the other. I then sent the letter that WhyChat advised to send on his site to the two credit bureas. I followed all of the instructions to a t. I received a letter back from Equifax advising the accounts have been verified that thisitem belongs to you. So what do I do from here. I'm so utterly frustrated w/these two accounts especially since they've been paid to the OC, I just want the CA to remove these from his report.
  4. I'm reposting this in case there is any confusion on what I'm asking. DH had 2 hospital medical accounts that were showing on his credit report by West Asset Management. I paid the OC the hospital on their website online & then sent the CA a DV letter. The account was updated as paid & the balance was zero but they wouldn't removed. Then I found the HIPAA process. So, I've sent the letter to the CB & I'm waiting for a response, I just want to make sure I'm taking the right course of action b/c this is confusing for me.
  5. I paid these collections online to the OC before I found out about the HIPAA process. I did send the first letter to the CB that WhyChat advises, certified, in purple ink & in italic font.
  6. DH had two medical accounts w/them. I paid them directly to the OC via their online website. I DV'd them & they updated it as paid. I disputed it w/the CB's & it was verfied. Today I get a letter from them saying that the account was paid. I just started the HIPAA process & sent the letter to the CB to see if I can get them removed. Has anyone else had an issue w/them? They wouldn't agree to PFD, so that is why I paid the OC. Should I try to DV them again? My HIPAA letter to the CB was just delivered this past weekend so I know I still have to play the waiting game but I'm highly impatient & just want these two accounts gone
