OP, an IIB comment is scored as a negative. I don't know if it's more or less than a CO comment, so any guess would be just that. If the TL had not updated in a long time (years), then there's a chance of seeing a score drop once the TL changes. Something to consider. YMMV on your credit.


Yea...That's what I'm afraid of. But I just can't sit and do nothing about obvious inaccuracy in my report too.

So I called Equifax and initiated a dispute about this matter. They said it could take 30 days to investigate. Fine.

I am going to wait for the results of this dispute and see where my scores will be heading. If  my Fico goes up - I'll call TU and EX , if it's goes down  - I'm not touching it anymore.

Re: Charge off vs BK.I was stupid not paying attention!

Update as of 9/18.

I've got a ScoreWatch alert today. My score went up 5 points because of changes in EQ report.

I don't know how to do a snap shot , so I will try to explain.

In about six accounts they changed balance from let's say $3,500 to $0. Although it didn't change from CO to IIB. Not a word about being in dispute too.

I'm pretty happy even if it's only 5 points ! Will see what is next.

Let me correct myself. Balance was $0 now it just doesn't say anything.

High credit changed from (example) $3700 to $3000 all late fees removed I guess.

Re: Charge off vs BK.I was stupid not paying attention!

OK. Another update. I called EQ and told them that whole idea of the dispute was to change the status of 5 accounts from CO to IIB. 

They said that they are going to do another investigation. It was yesterday Sep 19. And today Sep 20 I've got a ScoreWatch alert where it says that my Fico score went to 669. And my accounts i was disputing has changed to "Included In bankruptcy". So little jump from 660 to 669 , yea !!! And I'm going to call TU and Ex with same question, and hopefully it will get me boost too.
