Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

I have an old Macys card that has a balance of $488. It is scheduled to fall off my credit report in 08/14. I caontacted them yesteray to see if they would do a pay for delete and they said no. I'm thinking of calling them back and seeing if they will accept 1/2 payment for a "paid in full" or "settled". But my question is, if they don't agree to a "paid in full" status is "settled" just as bad as having the $488 balance on my credit report? I'm trying to bump my credit score?

 

Thanks

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

IMO, it's better to have it reporting at a zero balance.   If you settle for less than what is owed, they may report it was settled, which hurts too.

 

You could pay it off in full, and then send them a GW letter asking them to remove the tradeline.

 

A zero balance should help your credit score a little.  Settled would not.

If the balance is factoring in your UTIL, it will help your score. If it is not factoring into your UTIL, it will not help your score.

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

Hi Scott,

 

No, the balances are not apart of my UTIL as they have both been charged off. Basically heres the deal. I am trying to get into the really nice apartment. They said I need a min score of 580 credit score get approved. Im at a 560 now. The only thing with balances on my credit score are these two accounts, My thinking is if I pay off these two accounts it might boost me up enough to hit the 560 mark. If not then I migth as well leave them alone since one will fall off in 3-5 months and the other aug of next year. 

 

Thoughts.

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

No potential creditor wants to see, in your credit report, that you have old, unpaid delinquent debt.  It says you dont pay your debt.

Even upon credit report exclusion, while the fact of the unpaid debt may not be obtained simply by a pull of your credit report, it is still there.

So, in my opinion, it is always best to have no unpaid, delinquent debt.

 

As to how a debt is satisfied, when paid either in full or settled for less, the result is the required reporting of a $0 debt balance.

However, if a debt is paid by acceptance of less than the full amount, the creditor has the option of reporting that fact to your credit file by way of an additional special comment of paid for less.  While much better than having an unpaid debt, is is never a postive comment to record that fact that you did not fully pay the amount of debt you incurred.

 

A credit report that shows $0 balance and that does not include that special comment provides no basis for showing that the debt was paid for less.

Thus, I would try to get agreement to not report that additional special comment.  "Paid in full" is not a specific reporting status.  Paid, with absence of a special comment of paid for less equates to an inference of paid in full.

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

Hi there, my experience is RJM is real cool with PFD. They were real easy for me. Another note, I have a Macys and Bloomingdales as well. The accounts were never sold but it does report my balance is still with them. It doesnt factor into my utilization if I use the credit score simulator but I have been told it does in fact, hurt your score. Additionally, Macys tends to be a bit forgiving with credit and their CLIs. If you pay it off, it'll help your chances in getting another shot with them further down the line. Just my 2 cents..

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

I worked out a PFD with RJM so that one is taken care of. I contacted macys and they said no. I also contacted IC Systems and they also said no. I just mailed of varification letters to both Macys and IC Systems. If I dont hear back from them I will send a PFD via mail. If that does not work Ill pay Macys and try to later do a GWL. As for IC Systems if they dont budge Ill leave it alone since it is scheduled to fall off in March of 2013 anyway.

 

Next on the list is GWL to everyone else and lots of finger crossing.

 

With that said. I mailed a GW letter to Toyota asking them to delete (3) 30 day lates. THis account was paid off in 2011. If they do agree to delete them will it boost my score at all? I am kinda stuck in a catch 22 right now. Everything on my credit report (min Macys and IC Systems) is paid but I cant get anyone to give me new credit so I can start to rebuild. I have even applied for secured cards and no luck. I had a secured capital one a few years ago but after having it for a year I called them up to cancel and get the deposit back. This closed the account and my credit score took a major nose dive :smileysad: I called them back to reopen and they said no.

Re: Is settled better then a delenquent balance or should I leave it alone

My experience is that the Toyota lates removed wont help your score UNLESS youre looking for another auto loan.. Regardless, you should be good to go back to them if needed. Glad to hear RJM worked out!
