Creditors have different criteria for whether or not they will engage in legal remendies to recover a debt. The amount owed is not always the main contributing factor, the creditor is more interested in how likely it is that a judgment can be enforced. If the debtor is gainfully employed it is more likely a suit will be filed in order to receive a judgment which can be executed in the form of wage or bank account garnishment.

How is a charge card different from a credit card?

A charge card you have to pay the full balance at the end of the month. You can buy as much as you want, but you must pay at the end of the month. A credit card will give you a limit of $xxxx and you can pay that off over years and build the interest until you can never pay it off. So essentially you can buy a yaht with a charge card but not a credit card. The downside to the charge card is the fact that if you cant pay up in full every month, they will gut you worse than a credit card would. Also, charge cards carry an annual fee for their generous rewards points and the risk they incur by backing you.

How much should I charge on a 500.00 credit card limit so that its not bad on my credit report?

Your payment history is the most important feature for your credit report. If you have a $500 credit card, this is one that may be a "gotcha" card that will charge you for exceeding the credit limit, may add charges exceeding that limit and so on, leading you into a vicious cycle. Only charge what you can pay off entirely at the end of the month.

It is unlikely that the limit was lowered because of the pay off. Many card issuers are pulling limits back regardless of payment history or credit history. My suggestion would be to contact the card company and ask for an explanation of the reduction.

What is a Charge-off in a credit report?

A charged off account is similar to a collection on your credit report. The creditor has written off the debt owed and closed the account. The debt is still valid though and can be collected on. The charge off will lower your credit score unless removed. You can dispute a charge off and this give the credit bureaus 30 days to verify the charge off or it must be removed from your credit report.

Does the interest and finance charge stop each month after a credit card charge off?

No - I am a collector and service primarily unsecured credit card debt. Per the cardholder agreement that was signed with the credit card company, the account holder is often liable for a LARGER interest rate after an account goes into collections. This may not always be the case, but I rarely see credit card collections that have interest rates lower than 18%. Finance charges are not often applicable when the tradeline has been closed and charged off into collections.
