Please help

I just pulled my Experian Credit report and it states I have a potential negative item. I have a 30 day past due from chase that was recorded in Nov of 2002. It is the year 2007. How can i get this taken off of my report or am i stuck until it comes off on its own. It states the account will be in positive status in August 2009. Thanks for the help everyone

The account will report negative for 7 years from the time it was reported as being late.

You may be able to dispute it. But not on the basis that it is an old account. You can maybe dispute it as being unverifable because it was so long ago or you can try a GW letter.

If the account is open, keep it open. You stand a better chance, IMHO, of getting GW if it's open.

I agree with Noah but this 30 day late is five years old and even if it gets deleted I wouldn't expect much of an increases in your scores.
Credit Cards:
Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

FWIW, I have one 30-day late showing from Chase (credit card) from 2004. I tried a goodwill letter which was denied, then followed up with an email which was also denied. If you succeed in getting them to remove the late from your history please share your secret.
Good luck!
