Is reopening a Charged off CC with New CC a good idea?

Is it a good idea to pay CC charge off and ask them to reopen the account(get in writing), then DV a CA once account is reopened for at least 30 days.

 

Trying to rebuild.

If you burned them once- what makes you think they will give you more credit?  How old is the charge-off?

Many CCCs won't let you reopen a CO'd account. So paying them would only result in a paid CO, a paid or unpaid CA (because the CC would pass the $$$ to the CA or return it to you), and a new CC if you app'd. If you have a CA reporting, and the CO is reporting $0, then it is the CA that owns the debt. Reopening a CC wouldn't impact the CA at all as they are no longer related.

 

The best practice is to wait until the SOL expires or wait to have the $$$ to PIF, then DV the CA and PFD them if they verify to your liking. Then GW the CC CO.
