Sounds like a valid plan. Good Luck! And the good part so far is the debt is paid, it can't come back to haunt you.

Valid point! I actually feel good about paying it today. I have one more CO to go, but waiting until Feb when the SOL giant goes to sleep permanently.

I am in the same boat with First Premier. I have two charge off accounts with them. I was wondering if I pay will it drop my score, even though the simulator stated that it would increase my score by over 50 points. They are due to fall off in a year.

Paid off the First Premier earlier this month. Today - TU finally shows a balance of $0 and my Fico score jumped up 16 points! The charge off now has a status of "Payment after charge off/collection. Settled - less than full balance." I can live with that (for now........lol). Waiting for the other 2 credit reports to show change.
Good decision to pay - thanks to the board
P.S. I think I will start sending them GW letters every 3 weeks until they either remove it or it drops off. I can handle the cost of a stamp!
