CO Update

I paid 2 CC CO accounts AMEX and Cap 1 the beginning of last month shouldnt that have updated with the CRA's by now? should I dispute or wait some more time?  It is killing my score I think.  I didnt get a PFD that has myh utilization over 90%.  when the CRA update that will bring my Utilization to 5% that should help my score right?

Re: CO Update

just thought after almost 2 months it should have shown up,,,is it possible that the CA for cap 1 didnt report the "paid in full"?  my UT is over 90% even these are closed when its brought to 0 shouldnt it help my score even though its already charged off showing an over the limit balance?

Re: CO Update

When I was paying off my cap1 co I would dispute with CRA online days after I found that the payment had cleared my checking account. The collections person at cap1 told me that they only report 30 days AFTER the payment is received and I didn't have that kind of time to wait for the updates. Each time I did and they corrected the balance on my CR my FICO would increase as well.

Hope this works and that your numbers increase soon.

Lowering your util to 5% will help your scores.  Getting the COs off your reports will help your scores, paying them WILL NOT.  If paid off, you can try a GW letter to get em deleted.  If not paid off, PFD them.

Too bad you PIF, sometimes it's luck and sometimes it's who you send them to.  Many have failed with CAP1.  You could still try a GW letter, nothing to lose.  When are they suppose to fail off?
