How to Write and Submit a Pay for Delete Letter to Bank of America

Credit scores are one of the main factors banks and other vendors use to determine how "risky" it would be to loan you money. Those with low credit scores may get loans with high interest rates, forcing them to pay more than they otherwise would, or they may just be denied a loan altogether. If you want to , DoNotPay has you covered!

What Is a Pay for Delete Letter?

Pay for Delete letters request to have negative aspects of your credit history deleted from your report. This can help boost your credit score quickly and help you get better loan terms, especially if you have already paid off the negative balance. Negative credit items sometimes stay on your credit report for several years, usually up to 7 years.

Writing and submitting a Pay for Delete letter is a good option if:

  • You have small debts, like utility bills or medical bills
  • You have debts that you are still paying off, but you want to clear up your credit report
  • You have the money to pay off the debt, and you want to ensure your credit report will be cleared up with the final payment
  • You are settling a debt by yourself, and you want to reduce the damage to your credit score

Creating these letters on your own can be overwhelming, and it's not easy to figure out what information is needed. Luckily, DoNotPay can do the hard work for you.

How to Write a Pay for Delete Letter to Bank of America

If you'd like to write a Bank of America credit card Pay for Delete letter on your own, there are 5 important pieces of information you must include:

  1. Your name
  2. Your address
  3. Your local Bank of America address
  4. Your Bank of America account number
  5. The current date

From there, you can draft a letter that first outlines your loan situation with the bank or lender, followed by an offer to settle the loan or pay down debts if they delete past-due payments or records of a negative balance from your account. Next, add a sentence or two about how you plan to pay the balance, whether with a money order, wire transfer, or cashier's check.

Lastly, include a sentence that describes the next steps you plan to take if you don't hear back from the lender or credit card company, which can include enlisting the help of a lawyer, rescinding the offer, and requesting full verification of the debt. If you decide to write your own Pay for Delete letter, you can find several helpful sample templates online.

Unfortunately, submitting your own Pay for Delete letter is often time-consuming, and it never guarantees that your credit issues can be resolved.
