First of all, charge offs cannot remain on your credit report for longer than 7 years so most credit bureaus remove them after 6 years 9 months to ensure proper compliance with the law. Secondly, it's possible that those charge offs are not yours and/or that the companies in charge of the charge offs have lost the records so it is possible, although unlkely, that you can get the charge offs removed by disputing them with the credit agency. Another possibility is that one company shows the charge off and the collection agency shows an open collection. You should be able to get one of those two eliminated as they are duplicates. Finally, it is possible to contact the companies that have made the charge offs and negotiate with them to remove the charge offs in exchange for paying part or all of the charged off amount. Some companies may gladly do this whereas others will not even consider it. You could initiate conversations with the debt holder by writing a letter to the address on your credit report basically offering to pay a portion of the debt in exchange for complete deletion of the negative credit entry. In conclusion, it's better to avoid charge offs and negative credit by paying your bills on time than to try to clean up your credit report afterwards.

Charge offs are accounts that have been written off by the creditor as uncollectable. The debt owed is still valid and can be collected on either by the original creditor or by a collection agency.

Why would you want to do anything? Having active accounts, instead of charged off accounts is a positive reflection of your past credit history and is probably causing you to have a credit score. This is a good thing, certainly much better than having charge offs, even paid charge offs showing. Your credit report is a history of how you have managed debt over the past 7 to 10 years. Accounts that were active during that period of time, whether open, closed, active or delinquent, are SUPPOSED to show on your credit report. Having them removed would certainly decrease your current credit score.
