Is it too late for a reconsideration?

Postby prady » Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:14 am

So i applied on Sept 28th for Zync and was denied. They said my score is 591. I pulled my report and found i unpaid charge off account on it, i disputed it and now its been deleted. My current USAA Experian Score has jumped to 708 (not FICO). Report is totally clean and i have 3 CC's from 2011 itself. My credit history is very low, less than 1 yr. I was wondering since my score is high and report is clean maybe i can call them and request them to manually reconsider my application. I can't afford another hard inquiry on my experian.

Will they consider my request or since its been 2.5 months from my previous app, i have to send a new application.

I believe at this point it is, in fact, too late to get a reconsider. You might have to file a new application.
Cards I Carry:

Visa: CitiForward Student (1k CL, 15.24%), Capital One Student Journey Rewards (.5k CL, 19.8%)
Discover: More Student (1k CL, 17.99% regular, current rate 1.9% through 3/6/12) (Primary card at this time)
AMEX: Blue Cash Everyday (2k CL, 21.25%)

Not to divert from the topic, but I'm just curious how you got your charge off deleted from your credit report. I've been sorta doing a bit of googling on this topic, but there's so much conflicting information out there. So it's possible to get a charge off deleted from your credit report?! If so, how?!?

It is pass the 60 days mark and do not re-apply for at least 6 months.

well u need to dispute it with CRA, in my case it was a charged off wachovia cc. Wachovia was bought over by Wells Fargo and i disputed with all 3 CRA's "i don't own this account". WF couldn't validate it and bam 2 days later it was gone ;)

You can re-apply if you want to meet your 2011 deadline; i recommended six months to increase your chances of approval. I don't know what your Fico score is but if it is anywhere near your Fako score, you should be fine.
Best of luck and please share the good news with us :)

It is all up to you. If you apply by phone or online you stand the same chance of approval.
