My chapter 7 BK was discharged in October of this year and I have a couple accounts reporting like:
Status - Charge Off; Type of Account - Revolving; Type of Loan - Charge Account; Whose Account - Individual Account; ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - Consumer Disputes - Reinvestigation in Process; Account Transferred or Sold; Charged Off Account; Charge;
My other accounts are all showing iibk besides about four which all say the above. Should theese be reporting iibk? I submitted online disputes and they say it is reporting correctly. I am trying to make sure my report looks right after the BK because of what I read in another thread.. Do I need to send out certified letters now? Thank you a head of time for your help, AND happy Thanksgiving!

All of these accounts are the OC that have sold the accounts off. They are reporting as "PIF charge off" I made a quick call to the OC and they told me they are not the owner and it is reporting correctly. Is this right, or do I need to send it certified letters with a copy of my discharge paperwork showing they were iibk? Thank you so much again, I just really want my report to be 100% accurate so I can start all over

If the accounts were CO's before being included in BK, then they are reporting correctly. A CO is considered a final event in an account reporting. So the account was already finalized and you owed nothing. Including it in a BK afterwards changes nothing from the reporting party's stand point. You owed nothing, and a finalized status was already reported.
If you included them before they were CO then you could make a case but most of the time the CO status preceeds BK and is considered a finalized account. While this is disputable, you dispute reason must be different. Do you disagree with, the credit limit, high balance etc reported. You can dispute based on that, but not on the status.
