Need a reminder on understanding a paid charge off reporting

I have a Cap1 account which was charged off.  Through an attorney, the full balance was collected;   satisfied judgement.  It appears the Cap1 account updated to either a "0" balance or a " - " balance on May 5 depending on how it is presented.


Also on May 5, the status for the month of May was updated to FP or CO, as it had been for the prior 10 months.


Two questions:

1) Is FP accurate, or should I be requesting that May be reported differently?

2) Should I just be waiting for next month to see that there is no status reported for June.

A regretful expert. I have repaired before, I will repair again. My current goal is 670 FICO08 across the board by November 2019.

Re: Need a reminder on understanding a paid charge off reporting

Since it was just resolved this month a FP would be accurate. As you stated next month it should show no payment status. This is what will allow the account to start aging. I still have 2 charge-off's on my CR which I paid about 18 months ago.


Both show a status of 'Paid-was a charge-off' but have had no further payment reporting since I paid them.


So yes I'd wait until next month and see how it looks

Re: Need a reminder on understanding a paid charge off reporting

There should be no further updates as long as you do not dispute it and leave it be. Per CRA rules paid accounts (closed) with 0 balance are to cease monthly reporting.

"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."
