Good luck. I talked to them a couple years ago after bombing them with good will letters. I had accounts come out of forberance after 6 months instead of the 12 month that I believed they would have been so I racked up a 90 and 120 before catching it and paying them down and monthly since. The lady I talked to said that they would take care of them and they never sent me anything nor removed them. I thought it would take a few months for it to update but they never did remove them. Lately I've been bombing the consumer advocate office and all i get is emails saying they will follow up with me soon but never do.
My lates are from 2009 i believe and I'd really like them to be gone considering we had a communication problem since I asked for 12 months but they did 6? I've thought about disputing them, but.... I dont think thats a good method.

That's awesome to hear you got some removed. I tried emailing the Department of Education Omsbudman, Sallie Mae, and USA Funds about removing the negative tradelines from my student loans that defaulted. I since rehabed them and consolidated them under the Direct Loans Consolidation program through the Department of Education back in December 2012. The best I got back was a phone call from the Advocate at Sallie Mae saying they'd remove the tradelines that said they were defaulted, but wouldn't remove the previous derrogatories Maybe your route could help. I know you've gotten slammed with requests for PMs but if you wouldn't mind, I'll keep you posted on my progress

First I would like to congratulate you for Conquering the impossible - - - getting Sallie mae to delete any derogatory information off your credit report is fete worthy of SUPER MAN ! (LOL) - - -
If I may ask, how did you do it ? - - - could you share with us the step by step plan of action that you took to achieve your goal ? - - - how long did this process
take ? - - - Did you sign up for one of those Student Loan Rehabilitation programs that I keep hearing about ? - - - In my case I signed up for an auto- withdrawal plan ( that was designed to bring my loan current in 3 months) that took out a set amount every month. Its been over a year since I began that plan & I am happy to say that I have not missed a payment.- - - Question , in view of this,would Sallie mae agree to delete my negative info, does a year of on time payments qualify ? - - - and finally who do I contact ? - - - could you send me their information ?
Your response in this matter, is greatly appreciated !
