Pay off Charged off Amex?

Re: Pay off Charged off Amex?

I may be wrong, but I was thinking Optima was only offered if 20% of the amount you defaulted on was a minimum of $500. So you would have to default on at least $2500. I found this out when I called and asked the executive office about the program. I didn't tell them that I was going to pay my balance (i did that online); I just asked about the card itself and they told me what it was.

I am not aware of such a thing. I owed 1500 after the initial 500 I paid in 2012.
