Re: how to get old account to report for TU

If they report, so as long as you were never late, will help you a lot. The only option is to call the OC and ask them to report on TU. If the loan is closed, it will be next to impossible to get them to report. If your AAoA on EX and EQ without the loan is the same as yours on TU, it may be worth keeping quiet on if this is closed. WF may end up removing on those two as well.

It should be noted that Creditors are not obligated to report information to the credit bureau.

 

Some will report to one, while others report to two and some will report to all three.

 

I suppose you can call the creditor and request they information to be inserted but they are not obligated to do so.

 

Since this is an old account and has been paid off I really see no advantage in pursuing this, other than the age factor of accounts. I do not think it would matter one way or another for scoring purposes, especially if the account is closed.
