Your credit score is not being benefitted by unpaid bills, that's for sure!!!  The accounts will remain part of your credit history for at least 7 nyears, unless one of the credit card companies decides to try for a judgement in court.  Then the account will remain for at least 10 years.

Isuggest reading the articles on this site so you can learn about credit since that is the purpose of Credit Karma--to erase the ignorance about credit that far too many people have!!

Depending on your state Judgements can come off your credit report in 7 years. I have one that will fall off in the next year.
