If I pay the full amount of an acct. in collections, how long will it take to come off of my credit?...

Haha that's load of BS. Vast majority of debts are being sold to debt buyers, that debt can be brought and sold many times over from one collection agency to another, once it's sold, that debt has nothing to do with original creditors, as original creditor no longer has any authority on that debt, so the original creditors are powerless to do anything to change the status of that debt nor delete the collections. Just think, after you "sold" your car? can you demand the new owner not to wash the car?

I finalized my bankruptcy two months ago and was just approved for a 20,000 car loan at 9.5% this

I don't think anyone able to tell you what the time frame might be. However, you are already step(s) ahead of others, with auto loan of 9.5% it's sold base to build on. Avoid credit card issuers that were included in the BK, most, if not all of them will decline your app, AmEx will not let you back in for probably next 20, even if you pay them back but CapOne may approve you just after 12 months. You can always start out with a secured card, again, just not those were included on BK. what 

643 score on CK. What are my chances of a 11'000 personal loan?

I'd say no chance, I would be very happy if I am wrong but unfortunately, if you can't get refi on auto loan (secured loan)? Then there is very little chance of getting a personal loan (unsecured), along with 1400/mo income on 11k personal loan, the chance would be zero. I would suggest try use pre-qual link at CapOne's auto loan, it's soft inquiry, if/when you get pre-approved? you do NOT have to use it, just to see where you at, what amount and what kind of interest you can get with your current credit profile. Best of luck.

Only fee with CapOne comes to mind is the annual fee, they even stop with the annual fee, if you apply it after July/Augest of 2015. I want to listen to your review, however I am not understanding exactly what fees you are referring to. It's little bit difficult for me to grasp they would close your account only because you check your account frequently.

what does the tax lien status "Released" mean?

Sep 26, 2016
Helpful to 13 out of 13 people

It means the lien been satisfied and it's "released"... Just in case you are wondering, NO, released dosent mean it will/should be removed from your report. You would need to get it withdrawn, typically it's very difficult to do so for the State liens, you would need to do reasrch on it in your State. For Federal tax liens? You can go to IRS website and search for "Form 12277".

how can I built my credit high

It's difficult to answer without knowing what makes your credit bad but there are two things you can do to have better credit/higher scores, one, make all your payments on-time and two, keep your credit card ultlization below 30%, below 10% if you can help it. Other than those two? Probably time, your credit scores will improve over time when the "bad" fall out of your credit history, assumes you do not add anything negative to your report.

Unpaid collection account dropped from credit report

Could be clerical/data keeping error from Credit Bureaus, could be the collection is transitioning from one collection agency to another. The new collection agency may or may not reporting it to CRA intermediately, sometime it might not ever be reported again. Keep your eyes on credit reports tho, collections have habits showing up at most inopportune time.

The Relationship Between Your Credit Score and Credit Card Utilization Rate

If you aren't going to use your high credit scores once a while for your financial benefit then what's the point of having and maintaining an high scores? I personally much rather take a 20 points drop to have 0% for 24 months, simply because my score would rebound as I pay down the balance but I won't get the interest back if I didn't taking the advantage of my high scores.

Credit scores are only factor, your income, amount of debt/balances you have., your credit profiles/recent activities matters. Besides, AmEx do not use credit karma's score for their lending decisions, the score they use (most likely Experian FICO 8) could easily be 50 points lower or 20 points higher than from scores you have here. You can request a CLI upon activation up to 3X (1k to 3k) or you can wait until 91 days from approval.

How do I remove an account from my credit report that is over 36 months old??

Jun 15, 2016
Helpful to 10 out of 10 people

Nothing changes the reportable/removal date for collections. Per FCRA, It's 7 1/2 years from the Date Of First Delinquency, usually it's last time you didn't pay that lead up to such action, it dose NOT go by when the original account was opened/closed certainly not by when collection's open date.or another collection agency received the collection authority on that debt. The reportable/removal dose NOT re-age periord. The CRAs routinely remove them in 7 years. If you aren't sure? Call Credit Bureaus and they will tell you exact month it will be removed.
