I have had a CC account with them for over 5 years that I closed about 2 years ago while going through a divorce. I tried to GW them twice to remove some 30 and 60 day lates and they gave me the standard denial letter too. I also tried to call them to reopen the acct and they said "no." Then I applied for a new card hoping that my history with them would help override my EX 630 score....and they said "no." I haven't had much luck with them at all.

I don't have the whole "I was a good customer for a long time" line to give them, as this card just showed up in my mailbox in May of 06 and by December I had defaulted.How should I go about doing this? Anyone have any experience with Chase? I have already started GWing Chase for my Pier 1 card (1 late pay) and they keep responding saying its illegal to change information on CR's.Any thoughts?
