Ok..... Here they are ......

[ Edited ]

Ok, I just finished reading Sidewinder's post "What steps do I take?" I have just been approved for a car loan (a small one) but a start no doubt. I have a paid off car loan for 03' and then back doored with a repo in 05 that is scheduled to fall off in Dec. 2011 on Experian and March of 2012 on Transunion and Equifax, Why the different drop off dates? Ok anyway, I will be in a better position to begin some credit gardening. Everything in 2011 scheduled to fall off I'm just going to leave alone, let them be. These that I list below are scheduled to stay on from 2012 to 2014 and I need some advice. If I settle them, will that start the sol over for another 7 years or should I just go ahead and DV and then PFD. Thanks in advance for any feedback you guys can offer.

If you settle those accounts, then the SOL does not apply since you will be closing out the accounts. When you settle, the can no longer sue you since the issue has been rectified and settled. Just go ahead and DV and if it comes out verified, offer a PFD. I think you will have good chances on the PFD for most of these CA listed except for plains commerce and new millenium bank.

Re: Ok..... Here they are ......

I spoke with a rep at New Millenium and she is trying to get me to open another account with them once I pay. Don't want another credit card right now. Already have 3 reporting positively and I never use them. I just have Myfico, experian monitoring and rapidfax.com posting to have a new charge post every month to keep them happy. No one has had luck with these to CCC on a pfd? If not they will be the last on my list to pay.

Re: Ok..... Here they are ......

Reporting SOL and legal SOL are two different things.

 

Reporting SOL or CRTP is how long an account remains on your CR. It is 7- 7 1/2 years from DOFD. DOFD doesn't ever change once it reaches collection/charge off.

 

Legal SOL has to do with how long they can recover their money in court. If you are settling or PIF, then legal SOL doesn't matter, as they will have no reason to sue. SOL usually goes from date of last payment.

 

So, to answer your question, no- paying will not cause them to report longer.

 

As for the different drop off dates, as mentioned above, negative items can remain for 7- 7 1/2 DOFD, so it sounds like one CRA is removing right at 7 years or maybe a little early, and the other two are leaving them on near the 7 1/2 year mark.

 

Never DV within SOL unless you can PIF.

 

If SOL has expired or you can PIF, then I would DV and if they validate properly, offer a PFD.

Re: Ok..... Here they are ......

What exactly would a proper validation be Sidewinder? The signed application? And since their already charged off,

if they don't agree to a pfd, should I just settle since it will still reflect the same. Then just goodwill them to death, maybe? And if I settle, will they still fall off the same dates? I will pif all of those less than a thousand and settle the other 2. Thanks for your help Sidewinder.

Yes, the fall off dates will remain the same, whether you PIF, don't pay, or settle.

 

According to the FDCPA:

 

§ 809. Validation of debts

(b) If the consumer notifies the debt collector in writing within the thirty-day period described in subsection (a) that the debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, or that the consumer requests the name and address of the original creditor, the debt collector shall cease collection of the debt, or any disputed portion thereof, until the debt collector obtains verification of the debt or any copy of a judgment,or the name and address of the original creditor, and a copy of such verification or judgment, or name and address of the original creditor, is mailed to the consumer by the debt collector. Collection activities and communications that do not otherwise violate this title may continue during the 30-day period referred to in subsection (a) unless the consumer has notified the debt collector in writing that the debt, or any portion of the debt, is disputed or that the consumer

requests the name and address of the original creditor.Any collection activities and communication during the

30-day period may not overshadow or be inconsistent with the disclosure of the consumer’s right to dispute the debt or request the name and address of the original creditor.

 

Make sure you ask for "verification of the debt or any copy of a judgment"
