I've been GW-ing HSBC for months with no success, BUT today I have a good feeling the letter I just put in the mail is the one!
Has anyone had success with HSBC and an address in upstate NY?

I'm from upstate new york. I haven't tried sending GW letters to HSBC yet, but I have two closed/charged-off accounts I want to fix up. One account has always been reported wrong to CRA and I have disputed it multiple times and they continue adding incorrect information. The other I haven't touched because I'm working on removing the CA tied to the account (Midland Credit Management). I've been searching for an e-mail address for HSBC instead of using snail mail.

I am from upstate too (Watertown). I am currently GW'ing HSBC due to a Orchard Bank card that I did not do well on during a deployment. Let me know how it goes, and I will do the same.

Welcome to the forum spiderman08. I recommend that you read the 7 locked threads that you see at the top of the "rebuilding your credit" forums. GW stands for goodwill. This is a letter that you can write to the original company asking for a goodwill adjustment. A goodwill adjustment could be the removal of a bad tradeline, or the removal of late payments. Good luck!

Along the prev. poster's recommendations, I'd suggest reading the following:
Credit Scoring 101 - great for knowing what is in your credit score and to see how your score is impacted.
What Steps Do I Take - great for learning the repair process.
and Example letters - PFDs, GWs, DVs, etc.
