Re-Aging Santander account to make it work for me???

Recommended Posts



Ok...ok don't laugh at me too hard.  I know it sounds crazy but IF....I could pull this off and of course potential ramifications come into play; so let me have it to keep me focused.




I have a Santander account at $1800 that was written off and sold to NCB.  Both are not scheduled to fall off my credit reports until mid year 2020.  The car, well for all argument sake, will run and has a great deal of sentimental value to me (and my daughter).  Yes, I know it is a piece of metal that can be replaced. MarvBear has been helping me over in the Automotive section regarding some of the things I was working on getting beater etc.


This is my oldest account (over 12 years), so helping my AAOA(correct???), as all my positive tradelines have been created just this year. 


So, here is where all the IF's come into play  (insert some of the Keven Hart's Ok...OKKKKKay....Okkayyyy's in here now lmao).


If, the Florida motor vehicle information confirming the title lien is still in Santanders name(again from other post in Automotive); and I want to get the title thus going through Santander ultimately at some point.  If I wait till both Santander and NCB fall off my report, I will still want the title and will have to go through this with Santander at some point, correct to get a title?


So, I am thinking "IF" I contact Santander and work this deal out---(yes I know good luck)


-We agree to a dollar amount of $900.00 (total amount)

-This will get NCB removed (part of the agreement-after my first payment is received)

-The even bigger IF...request they re-age it and remove all the negative payments (stop laughing now)

-even if they don't remove the negative payments, I will end up paying $900.00 and get the title

-understanding if they make this as X-amount of payments that I agree to(thus the re-aging) help to get this as paid in full as I do want to purchase a home in the near future--next 1-2 years.

-definitely getting this in writing from them


I understand this re-aging will put me on the hook for up to another long 7 years of restarting the clock if I sign an agreement with them.  I remember some of the situation, where I thought I owed 1 last payment and then all this interest from "no where" came out along with my decline in body/mind unable to work scenario back then...it was a hot mess.


At the end of the day, if they said max amount you owe us is $1800(no further interest will accrue--flat out $1800), we will accept payments on this and update it on your credit report (I would have to have the removal of the baddies), with the REMOVAL OF NCB (after first payment or something) and then I get the title; I would do it.


I am looking at, I did owe them something and I want the title.  Ultimately trying to turn a re-aging into something positive on my oldest AAOA and get the NCB tradeline removed off my credit report to boot.


Trying to turn the lemon to lemonade.


Ok....smack me around and keep me focused please.

What is the date the account went delinquent and never became current again.  Forgive me If I have already asked.



So I am past the Florida SOL 4 years for contract, past the 5 years of repossession, and no court order-safe from that part if I am understanding the SOL info correctly.

Well...that was the great hope....understanding it may not be realistic.


I am hoping/wondering since Santander has the title/lien that IF I contacted Santander and could make the "re-aging" into somewhat of a positive for me that I could potentially get some benefits from the situation of exposing myself to the re-aging scenario.


I am thinking at a minimum, even if they don't remove all the derogatory late baddies that they would pull the account back from NCB since I would be paying them directly.  Removing NCB would be a partial win for me as it would remove a negative tradeline off my credit report. Then ultimately once paid in full I would get the title from them/Santander.

First of all,   I'm not trying to burst your bubble, please understand that.   You are trying to pull off a series of negotiation tactics with 2 different data providers and the state of Florida's title system simultaneously.


I can positively guarantee that will not happen, so the best thing to do in my opinion would be to prioritize your goals.

I can understand what you want to do totally.  but you need to go step by step.


Do you want the title to the older vehicle more than you want anything else? ( that will be a formidable accomplishment in an of itself)  Florida started ELT title work in 2001, it became mandatory in January 2013. So you need to find out what kind of title exists on the older vehicle, is it paper, or is it electronic?

MarvBear, that is exactly what I need!!!  I don't want false air/hope in my bubble so your info or others will keep me grounded and is much appreciated!!!


I will confirm this upcoming week at a dealership exactly what is stated in the ELT system. I had looked up the information online from the Florida Department of Highway and Safety's website based on my vin# and found out they are showing the TranSouth Financial Corp info.  The vehicle information check shows "paper title with lien" on Florida Dept's website.


My goals-

-Clearing up baddies on my credit reports

-Have added 5 positive tradelines within past approx 6 months (let them grow on time payments)

-In approx 8 months I can have all but the 2 baddies off my credit report(Santander and NCB)


-Just under 2 years both Santander and NCB falls off credit reports

-End goal home mortgage in 2 years (sooner better if possible VA loan)


I can live without the title.  I would like to get it resolved.



-Want title to car as above item will still come back to haunt me regarding title



I can live without the title.  Just trying to clear it up with a little mix of combing negotiating tactics if at all possible.


So, IF Santander (by default of transition of ownership from TranSouth) has the lien in the ELT system; I am wondering the options pros/cons of opening up the re-aging process as I have indicated.  I definitely understand I may not get all what I am asking for if I contact Santander.  If I pay Santander the balance and get the title then I can dispute the NCB off credit report.


If I call Santander (once confirming they are the lien holder in ELT) and agree to pay X, I am just wondering if I missed any other possible scenarios of the re-aging process that can impact me?

Well first of all if there exists a paper title then you need a wet-ink signed lien release from TransSouth or it's successors. And knowing how incompetent Santander is they won't have a soul who knows how to look up something that old and would be authorized to release the lien.

The negotiating of the chargeoff amount will a separate task.

The negotiating with two individual data furnishers is another task.

Re-aging means you have agreed to something that restarts the SOL. A settlement with a lump sum payment will not do that; that is what you want, not a new coupon book. They probably wouldn't go for that anyway considering your track record. Most lenders don't.


Your only real advantage is that they cannot successfully sue you, and they obviously don't want the car back. They have a debt sitting on their books, and any money they get against it is a gift.


List your conditions in a simple letter. Make sure you call it a settlement negotiation, not an admission of liability or an offer to pay. Read the statutes in your state and find out exactly what can trigger the SOL. It might even be a good idea to hire a lawyer for a few bucks and have them write this for you.

If they charged it off and sold it to NCB, you ALSO now have to persuade Santander to take the extraordinary step of re-purchasing an individual account.  The likelihood of that is about slim and none, and slim was last seen saddling the horse to head out of town...

Thank you ALL for keeping me focused and avoid the pitfalls of my brainstorm (drizzle storm-lol)


I did call the Tax Collector office today and they were able to verify that TranSouth was in fact what they had in the ELT system.  The Rep also told me that it was a paper title, not electronic.

      I am in really bad need of some advice on what to do with two accounts showing up on all 3 credit reports. I realize I made a mistake and somehow I need to fix it but I don’t think I deserve what this place is doing. The two accounts are duplicate accounts and are the same credit card account, but it is not showing that way according to all 3 credit report agencies.
      In 2019, I was going to be away for 3 months for some important medical treatments and I knew that I would not be able to take care of my payments during this time, so I set up automatic payments from inside my checking account and paid them their payments that way.  I had always made my payments on time so I was surprised when they closed my account.  My bank said that the payments should have been delivered by the due date, but Merrick Bank said that they were late by two days all three months. So they charged me a late charge of $39, three months in a row and then closed my account by the time I could get a hold of them. 
      Once the account closed, they turned it into a collection agency right away. But now on all three credit reports, it is listed from the credit card company as well as the collection agency and makes it look like I owe $2444 between the two.  The card was not maxed out and they inflated the balance big time.
      What’s worse, is the collection agency somehow updates it as a late payment every month and I get an alert from my credit monitoring website saying that I have a new late payment.  The collection agency is also listed as 12 charge-offs.
      I realize that what is done is done and there’s not much I can do about it. I am planning on paying this off in the next 6-12 months, but in the meantime, I do not think it’s fair that it is listed in duplicate and that the collection agency continues to update it as late every month. It is hurting my credit score considerably because it is renewed as a new late payment every month, as well as two separate accounts.
      Are they allowed to do this or should it just be listed as one account instead of having it on there in duplication?  Can anyone please tell me how I can possibly go about fixing it so that only one account is listed on my report correctly? It seems like something like this should be illegal or be against FCRA rules. I am also surprised that they are able to list it as 12 charge-offs!  Unbelievable.
      Merrick Bank listed me for a bunch of late payments in 2019, but stopped then.  CWS/CW NEXUS has continued to list me as late every month and just listed a new late payment for August 2020.
      The info from the accounts is copied below. The first one is the credit card company, Merrick Bank. The second one is the collection agency, CWS/CW NEXUS.  Merrick Bank will not talk to me whatsoever on the phone and will transfer me to the CWS/CW NEXUS if I get through to a live person.  The collection agency called me once in the beginning, and the representative was as surprised as I was and I have never received any more calls from them since.
      My credit is otherwise very good and I have around 20 accounts all reporting good payment history except for this company reporting every month as late with 12 charge-offs.  I apologize in advance for the long read, but I wanted to make sure I had the correct information in the post.  Thanks for any help!

      Trying to help a friend and not sure what to do. They were just served with paperwork from the Courts in Osceola County, Fl. It was filed by Raush Sturm on behalf of Sears for some appliances purchased almost 5 years ago. The account was interest free and when it came time to make the final payment it was offered to Sears to split the final payment within 7 days of each other to clear the account. They refused and final payment was not made. In the documents they included only 1 statement which shows a balance now due of $9027.70 as of 1/9/2019.  Currently she has 10 days to answer the court complaint and I have no idea what we need to document or request. The amount is beyond ridiculous and she is currently a full time student with an unemployed spouse. Is there a way to request validation of the debt with all statement copies and proof it was purchased individually and not a bundle purchase (meaning they have no documents to prove they rightfully own?)
      Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated. I have been reading on your boards about them being in the Hall of Fame for bad collectors. 
      Thanks !

      So when i was a teenager i went to open a bank account with my father at BOA (highly regretted it ever since) with a security deposit of $500. I had a bad payment status for 30-59 days and the account was closed by the credit grantor but only after i payed off the balance (they allowed me to pay off the balance by saying i had to make payment to use the card again and after i did they said i had to call a service representative) . I should have been more responsible on checking my balance since it was below $500 and thinking back now i was told that even though i payed off the due amount i would not be getting my deposit back, so me being a irresponsible teenager i just wanted to hide this fact from my parents. Moneys tight right now for my family so i was wondering if there was anyway to recover this $500. Is there any steps i should take to gather information regarding this ie the credit card terms and service before i try to dispute the fact? Would i be able to remove this remark from my credit score? I know this is a long shot but any information would help. Its been 4 years since then and the account was open for around 7 months. The year was opened on july of 2016 and closed feb 2017. Has anyone else had any experience with something similar?

      Long story short, an illness took me off work for some time and some card payments were prioritized above others. I have since cleaned my credit up save for one lone big bad that will not die off in the form of DSNB/Macy's (CitiBank). Here's the deets:
      Date Opened: 11/16/2009
      Last Payment Made: 05/06/2015
      Date Closed: 04/26/2015
      I've inquired about the debt and was told since it's past SOL it's no longer being pursued for collection, just reported monthly as charged off. That charge off reporting is a damper, though. What steps should I take, if any, to remove or rectify it on my reports? I can pay it in full, but is there any hope for it being removed or updated to not reflect so harshly? I appreciate any advice!
