Woohoo Pizza that's awesome! Way to be a master at reconing! Teach me your ways
Thank you SMC!!
Well, first you have to get an analyst willing to listen to you, then its all just about explaining your baddies, what youre doing now to ensure that what happened in the past wont repeat itself, etcccc, and why you want/need the card! Be prepared with answers to all their questions, even trying to explain why you have 25 new accts and 80 inq, lol..it all can be explained, LOL dont be afriad of recon!

This is epic. So happy for you.
BTW- How much did you burn them for and what did you say when they mention it?
Thank you sjt!!
You know I honestly dont remember, without going back and looking, but 9-10k probably..
She mentioned the BK, and I brought up that they were included, even though I knew she could see it in their system. I just explained what led up to it, and why it happened, what Im doing now to ensure history doesnt repeat itself, and I threw in some pleases, sorries, and give me another chance for good times as well. LOL.
