Amex Softing Me Twice A Month?

I had an Amex card about 9 years ago that was charged off.  I noticed though when I pulled my free annual experian credit report (As opposed to the reports on here which dont show softs) that Amex has been softing me twice a month. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know what the deal is? Should I be concerned aboutt his excessive softing?

Amex would like to get their money.  


Is there any way you could/would contact them and make payments on the charge off?   Amex would appreciate it and you would probably feel better.  Amex would probably stop doing "soft" hits so often.

Amex hits me 1-2 times a month regularly and I haven't been with them in years. I also never had a late payment or CO with them... go figure.
