GW success so far: AllianceOne, BB&T, Citi, EAS Equable Ascent Financial

[ Edited ]

reading about other's GW and PFD successes in these forums really helped and motivated me, so i thought i would pay it forward.

AllianceOne for GW deletion of medical collection
- within SOL but it was paid before i knew about PFDs
- handwritten letter sent to address on their website (Ames Crossing Road)
- they sent a letter the same week saying they would delete TL but they are still on my CR a month later. disputed with CRAs as "no longer responsible for this." TU deleted, still on EQ and EX. have to wait until next month for "investigation to complete" but, if that doesn't work, i'm calling the 800 number on EAS's response letter.

Citibank SL for GW adjustment of lates and CO status
- no SOL limitation
- called 800 number on CR. they wanted an LOE (i rehabbed these loans) plus my CRs mailed or faxed and were very nice about it. i know people say don't send it, but i sent a copy of the triple reports (the ones with EQ EX and TU side-by-side). not the whole thing, just their listings.
- within a week all 3 CRAs showed paid as agreed and monthly statuses are all "OK"s backdated to the beginning. account status is "open" on EX and EQ but "closed" on TU.

EAS (Equable Ascent Financial) for PFD
- outside SOL
- handwritten letter to address in CR (W Lake Cook Road) offering 25% PFD
- TL magically disappeared without a peep from them. i think it's either because they are outside of SOL or because the verbage in my letter ("this should not be construed as an acknowledgement of liability," "respond with a letter on company letterhead," etc.) made them realize i was well-informed and they didn't want the hassle.

BB&T for GW adjustment for one 30-day late on auto loan
- closed in good standing so it would have stayed on my CR until 2016
- no response to my handwritten letter so i disputed with CRAs as "never late"
- EQ and EX say paid as agreed and 30-day late removed. TU just deleted TL

Starting Score: EQ FICO 588 EX FICO 587 TU FICO 588
Current Score: EQ FICO 660 EX FICO 642 TU FICO 606
Goal Score: 680

Impressive! I didn't even think about asking Amex for a GW adjustment of my CO status because I didn't think they'd do it. I simply sent them a GW letter requesting the TL be deleted. Fingers are crossed they do it (it's currently in the mail) but seems now like I should of asked for adjustment of the CO status. I guess I thought that would be too slippery to ask that of them?


By any chance, can you post or PM me the GW letter you used to request adjustment of CO status? I'd love to see what you said in it.

Thanks in advance!!

Would love to know what you wrote to Citibank sl. Did you fax mail or both. How can I get credit report with all three bureaus? Thanks
