I had a 60-month loan with 59 perfect payments and one 30-day late payment (May 2004) which I asked if they would consider removing. I drafted the letter using many of the examples I found in these forums and tailored it for my situation.The reply signed by someone in their Loan Services Dept stated something to this effect..."We have reviewed your loan and in doing so, have determined that you were 30-days late with your May 2004 payment. The information is therefore accurate and we cannot remove what is now history"I was upset that my request was not addressed properly because in the letter, I fully acknowledged the late payment and explained my circumstances why it was late. But I emphasized my 59 other perfect payments and how I was cleaning up my credit, etc.My question...do I let this go or do I try again? Seems like it did not get to a person in a position to consider goodwill. We received it back in a week which seems like not much time was spent considering. Your thoughts??Thank you, Mike
