Ok I have 3 charge off's with GE Money Bank Walmart, JCP, and LOWES. These account are almost 7 years old and only JCP is reporting on my TU. My concern is that I may be blacklisted and dont want to waste a TU inquiry. Current FICO is 658. Any advice?

Your 658 current score is higher than my 617 TU was and I applied this past week for Cap One Cash Rewards, Walmart Store Card, and Amazon Store Card. I was approved for all of them instantly online. Cap One checked all and Walmart/Amazon checked TU only. I had a Walmart CO and collections deleted from my report earlier in January so that's why I went on this small app spree. It worked and now I can garden for a while and let my scores build and hopefully see CL increases.
I would probably wait until your JCP falls off just to be sure. It may also depend on what other things are on your reports.

If GE Blacklisted they would be out of a large percentage of consumers. They deal in primarily store cards that are in general medium to low credit profiles. Other than 0% deals folks with solid credit will be using a regular credit card with lower interest or rewards. If they blacklisted everyone who burned them in the past they would be out a lot of customers. So no, they don't blacklist but this is why their interest rate is sky high, high risk. Do you have any current credit lines? After 7 years you should be fine but any current positive trade lines would certainly help.
