So i have a secure card from wells fargo from 2013 it was a $ 300 card…..
its a charge off on my cr for $ 450…..
i called wf to pay it off and the rep said that if i pay it in full they will NOT remove it from my file just notate that it is paid
even if we settled which i did not know that was a option to settle for less that they still would not mark it off just as a settled account
here is my questions….
1 is it better to pay in full or settle for less when it comes to affecting my score???…….
also its killing my utilization since its 450 reporting each month and my total cards to date are like 1600……
someone please explain the difference in this case for me…….i applied for a Barclay’s and they told me this would have to be off my report
i just got approved for a qs1 and a platinum unsecured cap 1 both with 500cl
much better then my 1st premiere and credit1 cards i had with 300 &450 cl…..
