SUCCESS!!! Honda Finance Removal

[ Edited ]

Update 2/2/12 - Just (literally) got a call from American Honda Finance Corp... they are removing the 60 day late AND the charge-off from my credit reports!!! YAHOOOOO!!!!!! I couldn't get to MyFico fast enough! This is great news!

 

Update 3/8/12 - I do not actively monitor this thread so if you want contact info, send your request to me in a PM. Thanks.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Original Post:

I need a good contact to try a GW from Honda Finance to remove the charge-off on my account.

 

I missed 2 payments (1 30 day in 2006, 1 60 day in 2009) and there were only like 4 payments left on the acct but I lost my job right then.

 

Anyways, I made payment arrangements to the CA to pay off the remaining balance, which was complete in Mar 2010. I sent a GW letter in 7/2010 asking to have the negative/delinquent info removed from the CRA. I never heard any response. I noticed today that it is still showing on the CR and plan to send another letter this week.

 

Is there a better way to get a response. Here is the address I sent it to (from the CR) - 8601 MCALPINE PARK DRIVE, SUITE 230, CHARLOTTE , NC-28211

 

Here is the info from EQ today:

Re: American Honda Finance Corp - GW Contact?

Hi!

 

Since your post is about fixing your credit, I'm moving it to the rebuilding your credit forum.

Re: American Honda Finance Corp - GW Contact?

thanks Fused.

 

I wasn't sure where to post it, since it was more about trying to find a contact at Honda Finance than actually rebuilding.

Re: American Honda Finance Corp - GW Contact?

I found the name of the president, and just sent it to the headquarters address, but not sure if that will get a response - hopefully!

 

I'm still looking for any other information/contacts - email, mail, phone, etc

Re: American Honda Finance Corp - GW Contact?

I wish you luck with this one.  I sent them numerous GW letters and called them countless times to remove one 30 minute late.  They always said no until one day the late just disappeared off my credit report.  I guess they just got tired of me sending GW letters.  I sent all of my letters to the following address:

 

AMERICAN HONDA FINANCE CORPORATION
8601 McAlpine Park Drive, #230

Re: American Honda Finance Corp - GW Contact?

Hi John,

 

I ended up sending it to the headquarters in Torrence, CA because previously I was sending it to that address.

 

I am ecstatic! I hope this helps my credit score!
