They all appear to be paid or only lates reporting. If that is the case about the only thing you can do is start sending out GW letters. You may get 100 no's but it only takes one yes.
If one person says no, find another one to send a GW to. Just keep sending them.

With Macy's I would call. I had really good success with just giving them a call. They are relatively receptive to sympathetic stories & whatnot.
Likewise, I would make sure I talk to a higher rep. I spoke with a few lower guys that continually told me there was nothing they could do. Once I spoke with the higher rep, everything was "clean & clear".
I had 13 lates ranging from 30 to 120's....
SO it can def be done!!!

I just called the number that was listed on the Macy's website.
One key thing as i mentioned before, make sure if they give you any hassle (the front line folks) just ask to speak to a supervisor. These guys are really helpful and willing to help.

Yeah that's probably who you'd need to speak with.
I hung out on the phone with them for a while, however they took care of the issue fast.
Just stay on top of it and you nail it.
