Re: 33 pt increase i

The 30 day lates were from early 2012. I have to be honest, I was about to the point of throwing in the towel. Many many many GW letters with no forward movement gets draining. However now my heads back in the game. These 33 points has renewed my drive.

So what do you say is the best GW method for those needing to remove some lates?

Persistence. I have heard of sending one GW letter with success but that's usually not the case. Also research, on this site, for people who have ha GW success with companies you are dealing with and get advice from them. They might even have back door names and numbers. Good luck
