I just found this forum a couple of weeks ago, and I've already seen improvement!
I had no idea I could ask them to remove paid collections- it never occurred to me.
We are planning on buying a house and I needed 1 whopping point on my TU score to qualify for decent lending. I sent a GW, by email, to I C Systems and within a week they agreed to remove it and as of today, it's done!
5/22/09 604 EQ/629 TU/653 EX (plus score)
5/9/09 604EQ /619 TU/642 EX (plus score)
Thanks guys for the wealth of knowledge floating around this forum. I'm going to try another GW letter for J C Christensen CA and see if I can't bump it a bit higher!
