  1. I thought I saw a post somewhere where the person was able to Goodwill the original creditor and get them to stop reporting. Has anybody had success doing that? The listing from the original creditor shows no balance, so it might not be hurting my score much at all.
  2. Ohio. I know it's passed the SOL, they told me that much in a letter. My concern is about the date it will come off of my credit report. Right now it's scheduled to come off in 12/2020 but I'd like to do some work and get it removed earlier.
  3. An old CapitalOne credit card was charged off. It went to collections and the collections account appeared on my reports. The original CapitalOne credit card disappeared from two reports but is still on Equifax. Do original creditor accounts that are charged off usually stay on your report after they're sent to collections? Is there any way to get the original charged off account off of my report? It seems odd that basically the same account can show up as two negative items. If it can come off, can you please help me find some resources to help get it off? I found this article but it doesn't help much: https://blog.credit.com/2012/08/credit-report-double-jeopardy-means-double-damage-61199/
  4. DOFD was 3/2014. The report lists it as On Record Until 10/2020. It list the Date Opene as 06/2017, I'm assuming that's maybe when Portfolio bought the original debt and created the collections account.
  5. It says: Date Updated: 06/08/2018, which seems to be relatively recent.
  6. Haven't been around here in a while. Is the 1-2 Punch still my best option? 5 year old collections account from Portfolio Original account was CapOne Credit card, $3,500 Want to buy a house this year and this is the last negative I have I'm concerned about possibly re-aging the account when I send a letter I'm looking at doing the 1-2 punch but it's been so long I'm wondering if that's still as effective? Should I start with the DV letter to Portfolio? Are there any current example DV letters? Thanks!
  7. I believe the account was opened in California, but went delinquent when I lived in Illinois. Since then I have lived in Ohio and now Washington. Which state laws will apply here?

    Process for handling/disputing checking account?

    I opened the account in California, but have lived in Illinois, Ohio and now Washington since then. I'm still not clear what state the SOL goes off of. I'm getting the EWS report now. Thank you!
  9. I had a checking account that went negative and I never dealt with it. It was opened about 12 years ago and it was charged off 4 years ago. I also haven't done anything with the account in about 8 years. Recently I've been getting collections calls asking for $400. I've ordered the chexsystems report. The account is probably mine, but in not sure yet. I'm hoping that I'm past some statute of limitations or something that will help me. I'm familiar with the process of disputing credit accounts but what is the process for checking accounts?
  10. No, looking back through my phone, I've have about 15 calls in the past two weeks. My phone says "Suspicious Caller" or something like that on the caller ID so I hadn't been answering, but yes, I've only answered ONE call. When they called he rattled off his name and company SO fast that I still don't know who/where he was calling from. I had to ask him to slow down several times to figure out what he was actually saying. He did say collection company for US Bank but he said they don't buy the debt, they just work for US Bank. Regardless, I told him I'm not comfortable talking with him on the phone regarding the issue and I didn't know what account he's talking about. Which is true, because I really don't know what account this is. I think the next steps will be to get my chexsystems report and go from there.
  11. -Correct, I have no documentation of this account. I don't recall having a checking account with them in bad standing, but when things went south I was MUCH more concerned about the 10,000 in credit. -I'm not sure of the differences between checking and credit accounts when it comes to these situations. I believe statute of limitations for collections on credit cards is based off of the last time you paid on the account. How is statue of limitations different for checking accounts? -I answered the phone today, but the was the first and only time. I had just made some calls to hospitals about paying some medical bills (not in collections) and I thought this was them calling me back. When I gave my birth date to verify who I was, then I figured out who I was actually talking to and got off of the phone. I tried not to say too much, but honestly I should've just hung up right away instead of trying to figure out who I was talking to. -I have a credit union and a bank checking account, although I know that something is on my chexsystems. You're right, maybe I'll get that information and start from there.
  12. I had a US Bank checking account the went negative. After fees, they're saying it's -400 bucks. The account was opened about 12 years ago and I haven't done anything with it in probably 8 years. I'm positive this is past the Statute of Limitations. -What can I do to get them to stop calling? -If not, can I somehow leverage all their calls into some kind of lawsuit to get them to stop? They told me the account's only been charged off for 4 years but I find that hard to believe. Also, I don't think that really matters. I believe what truly matters is when is the last time I paid on the account. Not to mention, I've since won a lawsuit against US Bank over a credit card where they had to forgive about $10,000 and also pay me $3000 on top of it. I'm shocked they're now coming after me for $400 on such an old account.
  13. Thank you, that's what I thought. I'll read up and formulate a letter. Thanks so much.
  14. Had a credit card for $3500 with CapOne. They sold it to Portfolio. I sued Portfolio for a different account and they ended up removing both from my report. Now the $3500 credit card is back. It's been over 7 years since my DOFD for the card. Also, the derogatory mark for $3500 was on the report for years before it fell off. My question is, when does the clock start for this to age off? The DOFD of the credit card? The time it first appeared on my report? The time it just reappeared on my credit report? If it's from the time that it just reappeared on my report, then that seems incredibly unfair. If that's the case, they could just leave negative accounts on reports for years, then pull them off when they're about to reach the statute of limitations and then add them back again later to restart the clock. Also, a month or so ago I received a letter basically saying that my debt is past the statue of limitations and they won't sue me for it but my debt is owned by Portfolio. Any advice would be appreciated. Giving me the right search words for what I'm looking for would be helpful as well; I don't know what this is called so I'm not sure what to google.
  15. 1. Not sure if anything's incorrect. It just says $400 account abuse. I don't know what it's from. I'm sure over the life of the account I had many overdrafts, etc but I believe I've paid them all. I don't really even know what account abuse means. 2. 3 years ago. 3. I'm not sure what EWS is so I don't know. 1. It was with US bank so that's probably not going to work. 2. Maybe this will work? 3. It's not paid so this won't work. What list are you referring to? Is there a list I can see of banks that don't use ChexSystems?
