Just wanted to post an update for anyone who might find this info useful.
I just received a 9 point increase on TU, so now I'm at 660!! I sent out another batch of GW letters about a week ago and the following have been confirmed as removed.
*Removed 1 late from Dillards credit card (very old from 2006)
*Removed 1 late from Toyota (30 days - 2008)
*Removed 1 late from The Limited (30 days - 2011.
Reasons why I'm excited: This is the first time I've received so much success from one round of GW letters. I was successful on 3 out of 4 letters.
Capital one wouldn't remove my only late payment from 2003. Now that I think about it, isn't that past the date of reporting limitations anyway?
I had success with Toyota on a paid loan. I had 2 late payments from 2008 and they removed 1 of those late payments.
So, those 3 removals got me a 9 point bump. My utilization is high, so I will start focusing on that now.
-Good Luck to everyone.

Nice! I just sent out my very first GW letters yesterday, one to chase for a 30/60 day late payments from 2006, acct was settled in full. And the other is for a $70 medical collection I paid in August. Hopefully it does some good! I know it can't do any bad
