2nd Collection Agency?
I had a cell phone account go to collections four years ago. Total was around $300. I paid the collections company two years ago the settlement amount of about half the debt. The collection info was removed from my credit report and I assumed settled. Another collection company apparently bought the remainder of the debt and has now put it on my credit report that I'm in collections. I already settled this, how is this possible? What can I do?
