Cleaning Up Your Credit Report

If you have old debts on your credit report, you may be wondering how you can get them removed. One iVillager is contemplating just that issue but, since her old, unpaid debt has been sold to a bank or collection agency, she also wondering if she still has to pay the debt before it will be removed. Carmen Wong Ulrich explains her responsibilities and how she can make arrangements to pay off the debt.
