How to Remove Late Payments From Your Credit Report:

**It’s better to deal with Late Payments on your Credit Report sooner rather than later. The longer you wait to try and remove the late from your credit, the harder it will be. That’s why credit monitoring is so important.
2) Start by Calling the Bank or Creditor that is reporting your account late to the Credit bureaus – ask to speak with a manager and work with the manager to try and have the late payment removed. They are paid to say no, do just be persistent.
3) If the Manager says no on the phone, then you will want to write a Good Will Letter to the Creditor. You will ask them nicely to remove the late from your credit, don’t be aggressive or act like this is a dispute letter. This is where we are nice about it.
4) If the Good Will Letter Didn’t work, now it’s time to get Aggressive! I want you to dispute the account (in writing) with all three credit bureaus and directly with the original creditor.
