goodwill letters were a bust ...

    I sent Goodwills to a big and nasty car loan company and a big and not-so-nasty mortgage company, but in both cases they were denied. Personally I think the letters and the case were somewhat compelling, but no banana ...

    (I've read these boards off and on for a while and no one has posted positive results with the goodwill letter involving the car company).

    I'm not sure what to do now. I was browsing over at creditwrench where the sysop opined that standard validation letters were getting 'dangerous' to send. If that has any basis in fact then I would be wary of sending one to big and nasty auto loan company in particular.

    I'm especially wondering what kind of bridges I burned by sending a goodwill, which of course is a pretty clear validation on my own part -- the kind that could frustrate a deletion.

    In both cases these were OC with paid-off accounts; just lots of black marks for late pays stemming from a divorce. How does this sound? How would you proceed? Just cross your fingers and wait for CHOD?

    Don't give up, it took me 3 goodwill letters to remove lates on one account.

    LOL -- in this case, no, not unless you're referring to the Huxleyan vision of our great country, in which case it has a lot to do with it! ;)
