Wells Fargo charge off





Sub: Wells Fargo charge off
Sun, 14/11/2010 09:30

I just got a letter from wells fargo saying my account was going to be charged off in 7 days if I did not pay. I am just over 100 days late. I thought the norm was 180 days, are they speeding up the timeline or just blowing smoke.

Sub: #1 I am in the same situation with Wells Fargo, they are very uncooSun, 11/14/2010 - 09:30



I am in the same situation with Wells Fargo, they are very uncooperative and have decided to communicate with them by writing. My account has been charged off for $5,400. I tried and tried to work them even through a payment program but they won't budge after you have already been on a payment program. The only thing that is on my side, is I am disable and I cannot work so, I don't have any income and can only afford to pay them back so little every month. I live at home and have no assettes, like cars, mortages etc except for a checking account and they can't do anything with that either since I don't make the required amount of money for them to garnish my wages., All they can do is ruin my credit and keep trying to collect for 6 years. I'd love to work with them but, they won't give you the time off day after your account has been charged off.


wells fargo client.

Sub: #2 may second mortgage was charged off, and i want to settle it. MySat, 09/04/2010 - 07:23



may second mortgage was charged off, and i want to settle it. My second mortgage is $130,000. First they gave me a letter for 30% of the value, but we don't have that much money, can we still negotiate for a lesser amount let us say around 10 to 20% of the value?

It sure makes it easy to choose when you don't have a choice. Hopefully they will wait until 180 days to charge off and give me some more time to build up funds, either way I will fire up the grill and have a couple of cold ones tommorow.

Well, there's your answer and it makes the charge-off immaterial. If you don't have it, then you don't have it, and a charge-off won't change that.

Plus, life goes on. My Wells HELOC charged off last week. They are still talking to me about settlement... I'm sure the long term implications of that will not be great, but it certainly has made them more willing to settle given their most recent offer.

Thanks, I either answer the phone or call them about once a month. I am not ready to make a settlement offer at this time. I will roll the dice and see what they do, I really don't have a choice.

I typically do not answer the phone, but do return their calls generally every 7 to 10 days. Speaking more frequently than that is just a waste of time, I think. But based upon their calling cycles, they'd like to talk every three days.

I have tried faxing and mailing them settlement offers, but they have always gone unanswered. And I mean completely unacknowledged. All headway that I've made with Wells has been over the phone. And that goes for my Wells credit card, Wells home mortgage, and Wells HELOC.

And if you really only have 7 days until charge-off, if you plan to try to settle before that happens, basically you have to do it over the phone. I just can't imagine them acting upon a letter or fax quick enough to meet that deadline.

Sub: #8 There's nothing that says they can't write it off before 180 dayThu, 07/02/2009 - 11:45



There's nothing that says they can't write it off before 180 days. In fact, they should write it off before 180 days, if they think it is uncollectible.

Also, if they sent it in writing, then I'd believe that they intend to write-off in seven days. Otherwise, that's deceptive collection practice and could lead to fines or even a class action lawsuit.

Just as a point of reference... I'm about 130-150 days late on my Wells CC, and they told me on the last call it would charge off at the end of August.
