I was thinking 4-5 years. Just looking for hope. I worked hard for him for over a year. One more year and he could get a mortgage and prime cards. He let it go to charge off because he was angry at the CC company. Lates happen. Charge offs don't just happen. I can't keep helping him when things like this happen. I'm trying to GW the charge off. If no luck, he will have to wait it out. Maybe in 7 years he will take it more seriously because that is how long it will be there.
