Re: clearing charge offs

Hello careyall and welcome to the forum. The only thing you can do at this point is to write a goodwill letter to the original creditors asking them to remove the chargeoff off the credit report. Did you settle the account for half of the original debt? If so, it should say that it was paid and settled for less than full amount in the notes. It should show $0 balance.

Re: clearing charge offs

You say 10 years. Is this when the account was opened or went delinquent?
 
Who is reporting the account? Is the OC reporting a $0 balance?
 
Look on your reports(reports directly from the CRA) and what is the DOFD or fall off date for this?
 
What is your DOLA and SOL?

GW is only for paid collections/charge offs.
