Re: GW Example Letters

If my husband and I have an account jointly, do we need to write two letters or will one do? 
 
This is the first time that I have heard of the possibility that a letter could help.  We have been nursing our credit back to health for two years.  A very slow process!  Thanks.

Re: GW Example Letters

Foreclosures deleted via GW?  Has anyone had success doing this?  Mine was with National City Mortgage in 2002.

DW and I sent one GW letter to Chase. Three accounts--hers, mine and ours. One GW letter worked for both of us for all 3 accounts.

Re: GW Example Letters

I have a paid hospital collection that I would LOVE to remove.  Should I send the letter to the hospital or the collection agency?

Thanks!

You really think it might have a chance?  I'm 3 for 3, and I would hate to break my streak.  In my case, my accounts were not late or any other baddies right up to the date of my BK filing.  In those cases, the account is reported as Closed - Included in Bankruptcy or something along those lines.  I wonder if doing a GW letter in that case would really do me any good or not. Maybe if they dropped the whole account off of my CR, it might help.  But that begs the question, should those accounts described above disappear after 7 years (which is next year for me)? If not, would I dispute them as being older than 7 years old to make them go away? If just seems to me that there are some accounts on my CR which are older than 7 years.

Hard to say... IMO, the .41 is worth a shot. Smiley Happy
