2 Collections fell off last year; now being reported by new companies as new collections.
I had 2 collection accounts (over 10 years old) that have been on my credit for years. They were a result of identity theft, but they would not remove them. They finally fell off last year and are now being reported as NEW Collections by new companies. WTH? How do I get rid of them permanently? Is this going to continue to happen?
