They apparently closed the account after doing a charge-off of the debt.  Normally, the term closed is used rather than "cancelled," so I dont know what was "cancelled."

 

 

 I also dont know what "payment" means.  Did you simply make some payment after their charge-off, or did you satisfy the debt?

Are they still reporting a balance owed?  Does the current status read "paid?"

I spoke with a very nice gentlemen with cap1 exec office. he said they found an error reporting on EQ dating back to 6/2011 and one in 4/2012. it was reporting late and not paid. so they updated and back dated from 3/2010. so i am hoping for a nice score jump in the next couple of months.

Re: help please

The way that I would read it is that your account went to collections and was charged off.  You paid the balance AFTER it went into collection and was charged off.  The creditor was the one that cancelled the account as opposed to the debtor (you) closing the account.  It is my understanding that having a creditor close the account is viewed as negative (lowers your score, but not sure by how much), as is the collection and charge off, of course.  However, if viewed by someone reviewing your CR for a loan, they may see it as you being responsible for an outstanding debt and paying it.  They may overlook the fact that you allowed it to go into collection in the first place.  It just depends on the lender.

it went into collections and everything i paid it in full plus fees. it wasnt reporting right for the past 2 years on EQ so its being fixed by cap1 and the CSR said sorry for it.
