What else can I do if GW letter didn't work?

Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding my credit and I've written tons of GW letters and actually have succeeded in having items (mostly collections) removed from my credit report/s, however there are some companies that just refuse to remove anything. Is there anything else I can do to remove them and increase my scores? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried sending the GW to other address's? Have you tried to send it to some one higher up in command supervisor, manager, president, CEO, etc etc?


How old are the negatives? What types of negatives are reporting (Lates, Charged-off, Collections, Judgements, Liens, etc) Are they with-in SOL? Are they paid or unpaid?

Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!
