What do you write in the GW letters? Does anyone have success with calling the companies and requesting? Or, is writing better?

So even though some the original creditors settled up or sold off the accounts, at this point the basic GW letter is all I can do?

 

Also, is it the standard procedure for GW letters to simply mail them to the account shown on the credit report?


Thanks


Settled is paid.  If they sold the accounts and you paid the CA you can still ask for a GW because even though they sold the debt their TL is still reporting.  And the debt was paid to the CA.

 

Yes, mail to the address on your CR.

Escallate should also be easy to remove have been dealing with them a whole lot too. Have you called them and ask them to remove the accounts? They are really very easy to deal with? You must be pretty close to me we have the same collections accounts lol
