I don't remember the exact wording, but they did provide a written offer agreeing to request deletion of that debt from my credit report if I paid in full by date "x." I paid the debt, and 30 days later I got a 2nd copy of my report, and indeed it had been removed.

Is there some standard letter, or some specific wording we need to use?
