Capita One and forgivness?

Is Capital One more willing to give second chances if you have a CO is the past that is paid?

Re: Capita One and forgivness?

I got another Cap1 card after settling the first one approx 7 years prior to apping.

Re: Capita One and forgivness?

I think they do because I had a co in 2003 and they approved me for a blank check for a car a year ago. I didn't use that blank check though as the damb interest rate was out of this world.

Re: Capita One and forgivness?

May I ask what your scores were and what CR they pulled?

If you're asking me, here's a link to the thread where I discussed getting the card in the first place.

They have a card selector that asks you a few questions, or you can try their pre-approval link.

Re: Capita One and forgivness?

had 2 unpaid cap1 chargeoffs in the 90s.  lived w/o ccs for 7+ yrs.  started rebuilding in early 07 w/first premier (now fired) and orchard (to be fired in early 09).

 

4/08- went to cap 1's preapproval site...preapproval for no hassle rewards came up.  decided to app.  got it.  300 cl (bah) turned into 1.1k (300 cli @ 3rd stmt; 500 cli b/c of credit steps) in just a few mos.

 

9/08- went back to cap 1's preapproval site...preapproval for no hassle cash rewards (what i wanted in the 1st place, but was afraid to 'cold app' in 4/08) came up.  got it.  300 cl (bah) is now 600 b/c i called the backdoor # after 3 stmts hit.  due to credit steps, it will be 1.1k cl (yay) in another mo or 2.

 

cap 1 keeps sending me 'preapprovals' for their auto loans (which i need), but i've not apped yet.

 

so yes, cap 1 DOES forgive.  however, my chargeoffs were OFF my reports for years before i even bothered apping w/them.

 

btw, cap 1 pulls ALL 3.
