I had some credit issues and I decided to go with myvesta.org to get things cleaned up. This was in early 2000. My account was taken care of in full.
I am getting a bill from a collection agency saying I owe money for a credit card that was in my credit counseling deal. I do not have my paperwork anymore because it has been so long. I don’t want to pay out $7,000 for something that should have been paid many years ago. What do I do?
Well I’m glad Myvesta was able to assist you back in 2000.
You indicated that your account was taken care of in full so I’d go back to the original creditor that Myvesta made payments to for that account and ask them for a statement of your account. Alternatively, if you saved your monthly statements from that creditor you could use those as proof you paid it as well.
Unfortunately Myvesta closed in 2005 and those records are no longer available.
