Re: Recently added charge off account

When you say the account was paid off, do you mean you settled/paid with the OC?

Re: Recently added charge off account

The charge-off will become excluded from the reported account no later than 7 years plus 180 days from the date of first delinquency on the OC account, after which the account was not brought back into good standing prior to their taking of the charge off.

What is the DOFD on the account?

 

The reporting of the account itself has no specific required deletion date.  It will deleted if requested by the creditor, or after closed for approx ten years, by the CRA.

Once the charge off is excluded, the reporting can in fact help, as it will then show postivie with an old opening date.

Re: Recently added charge off account

I had a charge off from USAA from 2006. When I started paying attention to my credit report I realized what damage had been done. I sent multiple GW letters to USAA and they removed it from my CR. I would highly suggest GW letters until they take it off. Its not like they can do any worse to you.

The OC just listed their TL saying Failure To Pay?

You will need to pull your reports from annualcreditreport.com or directly from the CRAs to find it.

 

You could call the CRAs and has them what the FCRA Compliance Date is also.
