Hey everyone, I just wanted to get an idea of how to tackle a string of lates with GW letters.
Back in 2009 I had a string of 30 and 60 day lates on my auto loan through Toyota. In total, I have 5 30 day lates and 4 60 day lates. The reason being that I lost my job the day before xmas 2008. After depleting my savings, I started making late payments(or lack of) from March to December. The ironic thing is that before I lost my job, I worked for a Toyota dealership.
Anyways, I was wondering how I should tackle getting this off of my CR. I think this string of lates is by far hurting me the most . If I get this off of my CR, then I will only have 2 other unrelated 30 day lates.
Should I attempt to get them to remove all the baddies in one letter? Should I mention that I used to be an employee?
Give me some ideas please! Thanks a bunch

Forgot to add, this loan is now paid in full. It never went into collections/repo. Just paid it off in Dec/Jan.
I understand a Toyota Dealership and Toyota is different. But they are somewhat connected, Just want to know if I can use this as a boost.
