Joint Account & CC questions.

Hello All,

I have two new questions for everyone today.

1) The law regarding adding yourself as an AU to another’s account is changing. As I understand, you can STILL get the benefit of adding yourself to another better creditors account, but it must be a “joint” account.
a) What is the real impact to creditor in this case?
b) How exactly would this work? Would the creditor have to open a new account?
c) OK, basically I don’t know anything about it. Anyone know anything about it...




2) Look at the account below. I talked with Capital One this AM. They are willing to change the comment from “Settlement Accepted’ blah blah”, but it will stay as CHARGE OFF, that is if I pay 350.78.
a) I will pay the 350 regardless, but what should I expect out of this? Will it change my score, or help in any real way?

One CRA will drop giving credit to AU in sept. and the others are to follow next year. Not sure if or when this will happen.
 It is up to the CCC ...some have said that they would need to open a new account in order to have it as joint and that they would pull both CR.....other CCC have changed to joint with no problems.....
 
As to what you are asking about Cap1....I have never seen anything like you posted. It looks to new to be past SOL.
I will say this about Cap1 though.......do not trust a word that they say!!!!!!!  everything in writting!!!
 
Have you tried a PFD?
