Where, oh where, has the little charge-off gone?

Postby randeman » Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:43 am

I was having a conversation with a neighbor and she mentioned that her son has a charge-off from an old medical debt. She told me that he wants to negotiate paying it off but doesn't know where it is. It is from 2007 (she thinks). I suggested sending one of those nifty letters asking to take it off his credit file if paid in full since it still has a few years before it would drop off is credit report anyway, but we don't know where it is. Suggestions on where to look?

I would start with the healthcare facility that never got their money. I am sure they know where she needs to send the money.

It will fall off or chances are even the collection agent is no longer in business
