"Charge off" on a credit report means the creditor has deemed the account uncollectable. The creditor will then write the debt off and sell it to a collection agency. The collector adds it to the debtor's credit report for seven years (unless removed), dropping their score up to 100 points.
What Is A Charge Off On A Credit Report?
A "charge-off" happens when a creditor closes an account to further use, but the debt is still owed. Often this occurs 120-180 days after payments on the debt have stopped.
