FWIW, I still think it's wrong to use those methods to try and get CORRECT information removed from a credit report.

How is doing what he did (crazy letter) different from "I'll pay you if you remove the negative info"? They're both, essentially, a form of blackmail.

You (board generic you there) have lates and overdues and collections, and they're accurate, yet you want them to remove that information in exchange for being paid, and that's somehow better than threatening to sue them if they don't remove the info?

I just can't wrap my head around how some people here seem to think the one is ok and the other isn't.

Can anyone who thinks this way perhaps point out what I missed that makes it ok the one way but not the other?
