Will GoodWill work for this?

I have three installment (student) loans that were each past due once back in September of 2003--so it's been almost 4 years since any late payments.

Do you think I'll have any luck writing goodwill letters to the Lenders to get these late payments removed? I plan on saying it was because I lost my job (this is true) and I could not afford to pay them (needed to eat) between jobs.

Do you think they will be understanding? Anyone have success and/or bad stories of GW letters working?

oh well, I called ACS, they said to FAX them the goodwill letter and they will think about it--

There must be someone out there who has had experience with Goodwill letter writing for student loans...

Re: Will GoodWill work for this?

my student loan went to 120 days late and i refi'ed it and when it was paid off they removed all the late payments.  Im dealing with sallie mae now i missed a few payments when i left for basic military training and sent them a GW letter and am waiting for them to respond now. I guess it all depends on the company.
