Re: Jefferson Capital Systems, Legit?

I know this is a month old post, but I had to put my two cents in. I had my concerns about Jefferson Capital Systems as well. I am actually pretty satisfied with them. I completed the arrangement, there is no annual fee on the card and it gets regular credit limit increases. And the sol did not reset, the old debt fell off all 3 reports completely and JCS falls off in May of 09, the same month the OC was scheduled to fall off. Hope this helps if you haven't already made a decision.
  Did they run your credit for the acceptance of this card, I was given this option for a CO for them about a year ago but found it suspect so I didnt respond but now I am considering it just to get that CO from Jefferson off my CR, they just issue you a CC and if so what is the CL?

Re: Jefferson Capital Systems, Legit?

The limit I have seen depends on how much you owe. I had a small balance so my starting limit was only $300. You pay the qualifying amount and then I got the card about 3 weeks after that. I have seen on some discussions people starting with as much as $1000 limits. And no, they didn't run my credit.
