Could you PM me the GW letter that you used? I have some paid collections I would like to try sending GW letters on.
I didn't use any letters. I just sent them an email asking them if they would consider deleting the account from my reports since the debt had already been paid. And then I copy and paste a copy of the collection from my credit report to the email so that they could refer to the exact account.

I just failed at an attempt to goodwill Credit Protection Association by phone. They told me the original creditor (Charter Communications) would have to delete the item before they could delete it thru the CRA's. Charter told me the exact opposite. Your victory gives me hope.
Try emailing them. I did mine by email. I will PM you the email address for them.

Awesome job! Glad to hear you got CPA to delete. They wouldnt even reply to my GW request on a paid collection account. And it was only like 9 or so months away from completely dropping from my CRs because it was that old. That and I live like 45 minutes away from their office in TX. You must have found the right person, on the right day or something, lol. Or just really awesome GW skills.
I guess someone was having a good day and was feeling generous. I'm sure glad and thankful that they were.

Emailed RJM this morning and just got a confirmation email back that they are deleting my account!! Keep in mind- I paid my account in full 3 years ago. Very impressed with the response time from them!
That's terrific news! Congratulations!
