Nicor Gas customers, good news!

Just wanted to post this because during my searches on how to remove baddies, I noticed there were a few posts about Nicor Gas (gas company in northern IL). It seemed people had issues with GW and/or getting baddies removed by them. Well, I tried an email GW last week and by the end of the day I received this:

My name is (me) and I was a Nicor
customer from the spring of 2010 to the
summer of 2011 (address).  During this
time, I signed up for the my check free
service to pay my Nicor bill.  I was
very busy with work, and was hardly
ever around to keep track of all bills,
so online payment was the best solution
for me.  I thought I had signed up for
autopay, but after a few months had
realize that no autopayments were being
made.  I quickly addressed this and
paid the Nicor account in full.

Just recently, I've been looking at
becoming a homeowner.  I noticed on my
credit report that I have several late
payments from the misunderstanding on
my behalf that I had signed up for
autopay.  I'm asking that you make
a "goodwill adjustment" to the
information being report the credit
reporting agencies.

During this time when searching for a
home, I know that this will greatly
improve my chances of buying a home,
which will lead to me becoming a Nicor
customer again.  In fact, I've already
decided to purchase a gas dryer because
I've been told it's much cheaper than

I hope that you will understand this
honest misunderstanding on my behalf
and seriously consider my request.  I
would appreciate it dearly.  I will
eagerly wait your reply.


It has yet to be removed, but I fully expect it to be gone when my credit is ran next month for my mortgage.
