Depends upon the terms of the CC agreement, but most will allow fees to continue.
Afraid so. Charging off an acct is only an accounting procedure. You are still liable for accruing interest, late fees and over the limit fees as long as the cc agreement states it will be added and as long as your state laws allow it.

This is tricky.. The large balance should not be used since the CL is being reported.. my guess is this account would be simply ignored when util is calcuated.. I will find out for sure and let you know later today.
