I have an account with JCpenney that according to Transunion is estimated to be removed 5/2015. The account was closed in January 2006, i settled with them for less than full balance (before i knew of PFD) in 5/2008. Shouldn't this account be removed already considering the DOFD had to have happened before January 2006?

No it is actually a letter and you decribing exactly what you dispute and why. You get to include documentation to support your dispute, they have 30 days to respond to you with the results.
Making a payment does not reset the DoFD. Don't dispute anything with the CRAs except as a last resort.

Just a question regarding a situation like this and how I understood it.
I thought that if the account ever became current again then that changed the DoFD? So, looking at this credit history the credit line became current for a few months late 2007/early 2008 then they reported lates again. Am I wrong about this? Is the time actually calculated from the very first DoFD no matter if you brought it back to current for a month or two during that time?
I have an account similiar that is why I thought I had the thought process right??
