what is the removal date set from, when the account was opened, when it was closed or the last transaction date.
 
please i need to know. i have (4) accounts that i believe should be removed in september of this year, because they were opened in september of 2000, but the closed dates were in 2003.

7 years on collections and 7 to 10 years on BK's. I'm not real sure how they get the exact date to base the 7 years on. Hope that helps a little.

The date opened won't matter it the date of delinquency.  Were thes accounts charged off or were they closed in good standing.  Good accounts can remain on indefinitely but 7 1/2 yrs from the date of delinquency for bad accounts though of course you could dispute them right at the 7 year mark and they would probably be removed
