Last summer (12') I paid a CO that was on my account for a few years from GM Financial. After I paid the CO in full all of my credit reports updated to 48 late payments instead of a CO (Paid in Full). Is there anything I can do?

Yes, it dropped my equifax score (FICO) by 30 points. I tried to dispute it after it was paid, but instead GM financial updated the status to charge off paid. The balance says zero, but it also updated to 48 missed payments. This looks really bad.

|The Worst Delinquency reports the worst missed payment status that has been documented on this account. Your FICO® score evaluates how recently that missed payment occurred and in general, the more recent, the more impact it has on your score. However, the fact that it occurred is still predictive of future payment risk and could be considered by your FICO® score.|

I'm a little confused on this one. Where did you get that report from? It should not have dropped you like it did. For one thing, I can't believe the OC held onto the account for so long without doing a CO and selling to a CA. Secondly, I don't like the way it updated after paid.
On a positive note, it is now paid and you no longer owe the debt. I would try a few rounds of GW letters and see where that gets you.
