Date an account is opened has no bearing on when an account is deleted

Dear Experian,

I haven’t paid my credit cards in four years. How long will it take them to be removed? I opened the accounts in 2007.

Removing negative information from your report

Dear Experian,

How do I get companies to remove negative remarks off my accounts? I also have an account with a zero balance that I paid off, and it’s still on my report.

When paid off accounts are deleted

Dear Experian,

If I pay off a negative account on my credit report, will it be removed from my credit and raise my score or will it remain on there seven years and not change my score? How does this work?

Removing bankruptcy from your credit report

Dear Experian,

It’s been just about 10 years since my bankruptcy was been discharged. How do I go about getting it removed from my credit report?
