I was wondering if Experian removed the fall off dates listed on their credit reports? I remember a few years back they had these listed along with TransUnion. Equifax never showed them to my knowledge. It's been a long time but my 7 years of having negative items on my credit reports have arrived. I pulled my Equifax report and noticed that 3 negative items were removed and it dropped my score about 4 points. I"m guessing due to credit age, anyways I checked TransUnion and Experian and these negative items are still listed. I went to Experian to pull my credit report directly to see if it still lists the fall-off dates but I don't see them on their at all. Do they not lists these anymore? TransUnion seems to be the same way, i'm I missing something?

IME, EQ shows the DOFD. EX and TU usually dont show the DOFD but list the date of removal.
Wow TU and EX didnt show the date of removal. Did it show the DOFD?
Where did you pull your CR's from?.......and When?
I wonder, if it's something new.

I pulled TU and EX directly from their sites. They show DOFD but not removal.
Like I said I remember seeing it listed a few years back but I haven't actually pulled my credit report from the CRA's websites in a few years now. Ive just been tracking my credit via myfico and TC

Does the account still show as negative? IME, I had some drop off dates disappear but that was because the OC's bads dropped off thereby making it look like a positive account. I have one CO still reporting after 10 yrs...the negatives were removed and looks as if it was a positive account. It reports as "open" and I don't want to tell it otherwise.

They are still showing negative. I still see the CA and the OC on my reports with no fall (drop) off dates listed any where on the report.

Hmmmm....I just checked DW's EX report directly from Experian and she has a CA and a recent CO. The CA showed a drop off date of 1/2011 as of last month. Now EX is as EX does, and usually a January drop off date would mean that it falls off in February sometime, but the drop off date clearly isn't there today. Her CO also is missing the drop off date when it was clearly there last month. She's baddie free on TU, so nothing to compare there.

If you have your credit report order number, just call and speak to a rep and you can ask them what day exactly they will or should fall off your reports. I recently called all three to confirm fall off dates and they were all kind enough to tell me.
