Re: GW Example Letters
Is it possible to get something off my report when I have already closed that account?
I've heard I can request my account to be re-opened if they agree to remove the bad stuff but then won't it hurt my report to open my account again?  I already have 4 credit cards open.  If it matters, it didn't affect my score at all when I closed it - as I thought it would.

Re: GW Example Letters

I mistakenly took a $300 Macy's balance that was not revolving as revolving, so it hit my credit report.    The minute I figured this out I paid the bill in full, however my score dropped 150 points. 

 

Is this a situation that can be explained in a Good Will Letter?

Using a slightly modified version of the first letter here, I was able to get a 30 day late payment from a student loan taken off of my TU Report.  FICO went from 732 to 775.  Thanks!

Re: GW Example Letters
Tuscani thanks for all the excellent information.  I wish I had saw the PFD letter before I paid on a collections account.  Now that I have I was told by the CA that they would mail me a receipt of payment and that I should then send a dispute or GW letter to each CRA and that it would take 45 days for them to remove.  Did they just get over on me and can I can I expect the collections to be removed?

How efective is a phone call versus a written letter?

Phone calls can work. The challenge sometimes is that a phone call gets limited to the front-line CSRs and sometimes you can't get any further than a manager maybe. A letter can direct any appear straight to the leadership of the company, if needed.

Re: GW Example Letters

Hi,

 

I know this is a long time that you have posted this, I have 2 "30 days missed" payements, one from Chase and the other one from Discover. I thought that I had setup the automatic payement from my checking account, which was too late when I discovered that I have not.

 

my question is what is the address that I should mail the GW letter to?? is it the one shown in my credit report??

 

Thanks in advance for you help :smileyhappy:
