Re: Anyone have any luck GW'ing Univ. of Phoenix??

This gives me hope because I owe them about $4100 and I am about to pay it off. I will probably send a PFD first but if they dont bite on that I will GW and call them to death! Thanks for the post!

Re: Anyone have any luck GW'ing Univ. of Phoenix??

Been on a temp Hiatus from myfico but honestly I got them removed last year by reporting them to the BBB.  I owed them 4500.00 from 8/06 and reported them to the BBB in Arizona. 2 weeks after that they sent a letter stating they are closing my account and clearing away the balance. I spent 2 hours on the phone with EX Manager getting it removed off my credit report as the debt said Western International University and the letter and the BBB complaint was in UOP. We had to do a 3 way call.  For 6 months before that I disputed till I was blue in the face. Only thing that scared them was the BBB. Too many BBB and they can not renew their accreditation each year and that is not something they want! YMMV

Re: Anyone have any luck GW'ing Univ. of Phoenix??

Im still waiting on a response from UoP. I heard they are a pain for removals but I will keep trying. Im thinking the bugging game will work where you keep calling and calling until someone bends their "rules" and just removes it. i will try it after i get a response from my GW. The worst they can say is no.

Re: Anyone have any luck GW'ing Univ. of Phoenix??

Ok all we have has success but not through UofP. I was rejected and sent around the loophole for weeks with everyone basically telling me that there was nothing they could do. Finally got so sick of it I decided to dispute it directly with the credit bureaus. Within a week they were deleted from my credit report. So thrilled! Making a dispute was so much easier than I anticipated and very timely. Give it a try!
