In my experience with WFFNB, they can't/won't remove the lates, because they don't keep records that far back.

 

You could dispute them with each CRA and WFFNB won't respond. 

Of course, you shouldn't be sending out disputes for accurate info, y'know?  :smileyhappy:

To clarify:  I was referring to disputing the lates, NOT the tradelines!   You don't want to lose your TL.

Re: Victoria's Secret Credit Limit?

No, it worked.  They removed my lates.  I never disputed with them.  I acknowledged that I was late.  I just told them that "back then I thought if I had credit I have money. And now I know better. And will never be late again.  LOL.

That's cool!  With me...the acct had long been closed & paid off.  I just still had the acct showing with lates up to 150 days!!!  :smileysad:

 

I mean...I paid them $580 on a $250 card limit!  Yeah, I screwed up, but they got their 2 pints of blood out of me.

Re: Victoria's Secret Credit Limit?

A gentle reminder to all: it's against the Credit Repair Discussion Guidelines, Terms of Service, and User Guidelines to advocate disputing lates that really did occur.

I had 5 (!) 30-day lates on J.Crew, from back in my stuck-on-stupid days.I finally screwed up my courage and called WFNNB in early August to ask for GW. Before I could finish my sentence, the CSR said that they were over 2 years old, and they didn't show on her screen, and that I could dispute with the CRA's and WFNNB wouldn't challenge it. This kind of stuck in my craw a bit, even though the lender was the one offering to do so, so I asked her to mail me the "never-late" letter and also asked if they could just update on their end. I dilly-dallied around, never doing the dispute, and one day, presto! --the lates were gone on all three reports, without me having to do anything.

This got me out of the serious derog score bucket, and boy, was I a happy camper.

I found WFNNB surprisingly easy to work with!
