Re: Need input on right direction to go with these

Should I state something like:

 

To whom it may concern,

I paid this debt to Consumers Energy before I noticed you had it in collections. Since it is paid, although not through you, would you mind removing this from all 3 credit reports as a good will measure?

Thanks in advance for your consideration,

Re: Need input on right direction to go with these

While I do like them short and sweet, that may be a bit too short.  Remember in a GW you are attempting to go against policy, to show a human side.  

 

Hello,

 

     While going over my credit reports, I noticed that you had a listing that has been paid.  I ask that you show a gesture of goodwill and remove this posting from my credit report.  " put something personal as to why it went into arrears, but keep it short.

 

    I thank you for your time and look forward to hearing from you.  Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays...   ME.....
