Long Success story short:
-Fell behind on payments on a Capital One card in 2007.
-I was served in 2009,
-Won Judgment against me (I was a no show, mixed up court dates)
-Garnished my wages,
-10 months later, it was paid off on June 2010.
April 9th 2013
Searched this forum and found several GW letters that matched true to my situation and spliced them together. Sent a Goodwill letter stating:
1. My deepest regret for falling behind
2. Gave my reasoning that I was currently separated and involved in preliminary divorce proceedings and had 2 household to financially take care of.
3. Recognized my responsibility and have been up to date with current accounts ever since.
4. Was trying to get better interest rate on a mortgage, but this negative mark kept me from accomplishing that.
5. Requested kindly an "adjustment" to the credit bureaus.
6. Thanked them for the consideration they've given my current situation.
10 days later, (yes 10 days)
Alert from myFico, account was deleted from all 3 CRA's! Unfortunately since this was my 2nd to oldest account, score did not go up, but it's off my record 1 year earlier than it should have been. (7 years for IL)
The Judgement on my record for this account is in process of being vacated as well, that's another thread.
This is the only info I have and used for the above post:
