You can attempt the PFD but OCs are pretty reluctant to do them. If they will great if not just settle it with them to stop any updating of the TL as it keeps Fico depressed. After it has updated to a paid CO you can request a GW deletion from them and you keep trying at set intervals to get it.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Webbank charge offs

Hello

I was wondering what you decided to do? Did you pay them off and did your score go up? If so, approx by how much?  Thank you and have a good day!

Re: Webbank charge offs

Obviously, if you obtain agreement for a PFD, then credit reporting thereafter is deletion, and thus effect is the removal of the derog(s) from scoring.

 

If you obtain a settlement agreement, then the creditor is required to promptly update their reporting to show a remaining balance of $0, and a current status of paid.  The prior delinquency status (e.g., charged-off, or 180+ late) is replaced with a new non-delinquency current status of paid, but the CO continues to be included in your payment history scoring, and thus continues to effect your scoring.

Paying, however, removes the current delinquency status, and thus precludes further updates that continue to extend the effective period of delinquency, permitting the CO to thereafter age in its scoring effect.

If a revolving account, paying also removes the debt from continued scoring under your % util category.

 

If you obtain a settlement for less, the creditor has the ability to additionally place the special comment reporting of "paid/settled for less" in your file, thus advising others that you did not pay the entire debt that you had obligated.  That is always an unfavorable comment in any manual review, as creditors dont expect to lose $ in their lending determinations.

If you negotiate a settlement for less, you can include a provision that they agree not to make any reporting that the debt was paid for less.

If they agree, then your credit report will appear the same as if you had paid in full.

Thus, you might attempt to obtain agreement not to report any reference to settled for less.

I personally would try to take care of this with the OC as soon as possible before Webbank sends it to collections. My webbank charge-off went to PRA and of course most know what kind of nightmare that can be.
