When you say "showing up"; do you mean calling or these accounts are on your credit report?  If they are contacting  you, then the next time these leaches come after you, document or record everything they say.  Tell them you don't know anything about this debt(s); and you want proof that they are yours.  Tell them you want everything in writing, you don't want any phone calls.  If they don't comply, go to www.consumerfinance.gov and file a complaint.  Also, dispute the accounts with the credit bureaus in writing, tell them you have no idea what these accounts are and to please delete them.

Only use the Pay-per-Delete if you are sure they are yours, and only if they agree in writing to delete the accounts from your credit report.

Hope this helps!
