Credit Union Wont GoodWill

So I sent my old credit union a GW letter asking them to remove 1 30 day late.  They responsed with they report accurately to all credit bureus and they could not do so.  Should I keep sending letters?  I wasnt even a full 30 days late when they reported it.  Yes it was close about 3 weeks.  Any advice?

Did you just do a general GW or a specific person? If general, try a higher up like a VP.  I can try to help you find one, if you provide the CU .

If you weren't 30 days late, it should not have been reported.  Period.

 

You can always file a direct dispute with them under FCRA 623(a)(8).  They have to investigae and make corrections and notify you within 30 days.

I disputed with the BBB to see if that works.  I havent heard anything back yet on it.

Did you dispute to a general address or specific person? If general, try a higher up (dir, vp etc).  Sometimes reporting them to the BBB will backfire, because they may see that as a negative-not always, but sometimes..just an FYI.
