Great Post!  Good information.  I'm going to bookmark it and refer this post to others needing to get their bearings in the world of GW'sI.

 

Hey so, what's your advice on GW'ing a local CA?  I have 2 local CA's reporting medical collections that are paid.  I've begged, pleaded, cried.  Both of them REFUSE to budge using the ol "We must protect the integrity of the report" line.  I have written GW letter after GW letter.  One GW letter was SO AMAZING I had the City Manager call the CA to tell them to remove the account, and the CA told them NO!  You'd think the CA would want to continue good business with the City.   The City manager was pretty PO'd that they wouldn't help me.  The other CA says they are continuing to report because "their clients" want them to.

 

  There is no one else for me to write to.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.


I have had the several CA's pull the "moral integrity" bit. I usually turned that around and made them verify each and every charge, provide statements, use the FCRA and the FACT act bringing up many clauses in the card holder agreement and important notices and procedures that needed to be done. Most CA's thought I was crazy, gave up, and removed it from my report. Basically, make them eat their words by insuring that the tradeline is being reported completely correct and they that they have the paperwork to prove it, which is the "morally" correct thing to do. Good luck!
